I really don't know quite what to expect from this recipe, but I was intrigued by the sound of it, and had to try it. I baked some bacon in the oven and then crumbled it for bacon bits. I generously drizzled honey of the cream cheese before sprinkling the bacon and served this to my guests. Everyone loved it! And when I finally tasted it, I loved it too! What a great idea, and I'm so glad I tried it. Thanks for sharing.
I never would have thought of this combination but I'm glad you did because it's awesome! I halved the recipe and instead of using bacon bits I used Perfect Baked Bacon to cook some fresh bacon. For the half recipe I used two slices of bacon and enough honey to cover the cheese, though it could probably actually use just a little more to offset the salty bacon. Thanks for sharing!
So that's enough dip for the first bite. Now keep going... Made for Best of 2012 recipe tag.
LUNCH! Loved it, served with Ritz - I'm certainly gonna remember this one! Thanks for sharing, bsmith1!
I like it with smoked sausage. It is very good but hard to keep lit.
I made this for a family get together and it went over quite well. I incorporated pan toasted pecans with the bacon and formed mine into a log and garnished with rosemary. I've uploaded a picture.
This was a huge hit at Thanksgiving. I made it for the boys to eat when watching football after dinner and served with Trader Joe's versions of Trisket ("reduced-guilt") and Ritz, plus lentil curls. Even my most health-conscious cousin-in-law was more excited about this dip than the veggie platter and home-made butternut humus! <br/><br/>It was super easy to make, in fact, I put it together right on the table-clothed serving table (since the kitchen was a bit full of all the "moms".) I used a carmelized honey from the farmer's market and turkey bacon (no one seemed to mind it about the bacon being healthier since it tasted just as good.)
Delicious and tasty. I added cranberries and the dip was gone in five minutes.
bsmith1,<br/>Thanks for posting, I was so excited that I had the 3 ingredients, taking to family for Thanksgiving. I had to sneak a taste with a chip or too very good!!!!!<br/>Happy Thanksgiving,<br/>Justmez2
I'm going to have to try this at a baby shower this weekend for a friend with gestational diabetes and keep it as a standard for my son that has type one diabetes. He loves bacon, and this is really low carb. Gotta love it. I'll try to remember to come back and give it five stars when I get the rave reviews. ;)
