I made this for a neighborhood backyard bbq and it was devoured in no time. I used the low sodium bacon and brought sliced baguette bread to spread the dip on. I loved the flavors but being a blue cheese lover, would make this with a little more blue cheese the next time I make this.
Thanks for posting!
I took this dip to a party and it was the star! I am now required to bring it to all of the cookouts! I used fat free half and half, and garlic powder ( I didn't realize I was out of garlic). I also used green onion because I needed that for another recipe. Everything still turned out wonderful. I think it's all about the quality of the bleu cheese. I used the Boar's Head, less sodium variety and the flavor was great. Thanks for posting!
Really good, but heavy duty rich! I'm using the leftovers to top my burgers. Thanks for posting.
