Sometimes I get a hankerin' for something cheesy, gooey, bacon-y, onion-y all warm and bubbly...
...smeared on top of some crunchy bread. Of course this is just another variation of dips I've made like this in the past.
With this particular dip there wasn't exactly a recipe but it went something like this:
First, cook half a pack of bacon till just crisp, then chop it up (preferably after it cools so you don't burn yourself).
Add the following to 2 packages of softened cream cheese:
*large handful of shredded sharp cheddar (maybe 3/4 cup)
*a plop of mayo (about 1/4 cup)
*1/2 chopped onion
*your previously chopped bacon
I wanted to top it with panko but I couldn't find mine, so I used Italian bread crumbs.
Put all this in some sort of baking vessel, pop in a 350 oven about 30 minutes, then dig in!
This was the perfect snack for me to eat while finally getting to watch "Julie and Julia". (nice title for a movie, btw)
Tonight I'm planning to make Tyler Florence's ultimate brisket, so I can compare it with PW's brisket, which I think is the ultimate ultimate. A throwdown of sorts, I suppose. I'll let ya know the outcome.
