I picked this recipe up at a "Tupperware" party many many years ago. This is my "guilt-free" dip because I figured that having crispy crunchy raw vegetables with it cancels out the high caloried bacon, cream cheese and sour cream. ;-)
- 4 slices bacon
- 15 g butter
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 250 g mushrooms, sliced
- 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 250 g cream cheese, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- Place bacon in shallow dish, cover with paper towel, cook on high in a microwave for 3 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
- Remove bacon from the dish, then add the butter, onion and garlic to the dish, cook on high for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the mushrooms, cook on high for another 2 minutes, then sprinkle the mushroom mixture with the flour.
- Next, top the mushroom mixture and flour with the cream cheese, worcestershire sauce and dry sherry.
- Cook on high for 5 minutes, stir halfway through this cooking time.
- Stir in the sour cream and the chopped bacon.
- Spoon into a serving dish.
- Serve as a hot dip with raw vegetables such as sliced carrots, capsicum, beans and celery.
The neighbours came to dinner tonight, and they said this was a 5. It was so yummy. The only thing I changed was the amount of flour-only used 2 teaspoons. We thought this would make a GREAT sauce over steak or chiken, a baked potato, or as a dip served in a bread shell. Also thought you could add capsicum or corn or spring onions. It's fantastic as is but has heaps of other possibilities.
made this for my nephews engagement party in Sydney. Did the whole lot in a frypan, added mjore sour cream and some shredded cheese and put it in a cob loaf, baked an hour, was wonderful :)
I made this for our cocktail party, but since there were a few vegetarians I made it vegetarian by omitting the bacon and substituting some corn and some vegemite (for the salt). I'm not sure whether it was this substitution which made it taste a little odd... anyway I fixed it by adding 1/4 packet french onion soup, some Tabasco and about 3/4 cup of tasty cheese. It was quite thick as it cooled, perhaps too much flour? But everyone liked it! Capsicum would be nice in it too. I served it in a hot cob loaf with some bread and veggies.
