I just made a rockin' horseradish bacon dip for the sweet potato fries I'm making tomorrow.  I had to sample.  It was amazeballs.

I like my bacon straight up. Start it in a cold pan and go low and slow to avoid shrinkage.

The best way I have found to cook bacon is in the oven, on a cookie sheet. 350-400 degrees.

Did someone say bacon?

 

 

And geek, that little girl is creeping me out.

 

Anyway, I want to make our Xmas turkey this year with the lattice-work bacon I saw floating around on facebook lately.

Great, now I'm craving bacon and I don't have any in the house and all the shops are closed.

 

Thanks a lot, everyone.

Cheesy Bacon Dip

 

4          oz. shredded Swiss cheese

1          8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1          C mayonnaise

4          green onions, diced

8          oz. crispy bacon, crumbled

1          box Ritz crackers

 

            Mix above ingredients except crackers and some of the bacon and spread in an oven-proof dish.  Sprinkle with rest of crumbled bacon and 10 crushed Ritz crackers. Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly.

 

This is so simple, and so delicious. I know it sounds kinda nasty ... but it is really really good!

This thread is magic! I clicked on it, craved bacon, and then five minutes later, my husband handed me a plate with a bacon wrap on it. eat.gif
