Secondly, I have a yummy dip that I made for one of our Thanksgiving meals with family I'd like to share. Only I have to tell you that when I was making this dip I noticed there was a terrible smell in the house. So I started tracking it down and low and behold, swiss cheese. Ugh. I'll have to say though it is like all the other dishes that smell so bad, they taste so good.
I took this dip to Michaels Aunts house and even though the smell was a bit off the dip itself was wonderful. I got quite a few compliments on it. Either way, I think it is worth making and trying.
Oh yeah and by the way I forgot to take a picture when it was first baked off and had to take a picture of it the day after Thanksgiving.
Cheesy Bacon Onion Dip
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese, divided
8 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped into small pieces OR 1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper to taste
seasoning (your choice)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a pie dish or other small oven-save dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a medium bowl blend together cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo until creamy. Stir in 3/4 cup Swiss cheese (about half) and almost all of the bacon. Season with seasoning and/or salt and pepper to taste. Sautée your onions until carmelized over medium-high heat using 1 tablespoon of butter. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until evenly distributed. Spread this mixture evenly in the bottom of your prepared baking dish.
Next, sprinkle the remaining Swiss cheese over the top of the creamed mixture. Finally, sprinkle left over bacon evenly over the top. Season with a little bit of freshly ground pepper on top. At this point, you can cover it and put it in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until dip is bubbly and cheese begins to turn golden brown. Serve with crackers or chips.
