Crockpot Hot Bacon Cheddar Dip

This slow cooker dip combines cream cheese, cheddar, bacon, and spices to create the perfect dip for your next game day!

I seriously LOVE the Olympics, specifically the winter games. Anyone that knows me must figure that's really strange. I pretty much am the most UN-athletic person ever. Not only that, but watching sports usually bores me to death. When we're over my parent's house and the guys are watching football or basketball, I usually head to the kitchen, pull out one of my mom's cookbooks, and start some ideas. 

The Olympics though, I just love it! You can seriously sit and watch the people that are the BEST in the world at their sport, it's so fun. These Olympic games have been even more fun now that Silas is actually old enough to watch and cheer for his favorite. He's now told me on multiple occasions that he is an awesome snowboarder and that we need to go snowboarding before all the snow melts outside. He's such a cutie! 

My frame of mind watching the athletes though has completely shifted from, "Wow these people are amazing!" to "Oh my goodness, if they fall they could seriously injury themselves or worse!" I guess it's the mom in me now. :)

This Crockpot Hot Bacon Cheddar Dip is a PERFECT snack to put together while watching the games this year. I'm not sure I can accurately describe how delicious this dip is, you simply have to try it! I served this with buttery crackers and nachos and both were fantastic.

Hot Bacon Cheddar Dip
Adapted from Aunt Nubby's Kitchen

10 bacon strips, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup milk
8 oz cream cheese, cubed
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried, minced onion
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Spray a the bottom of a 4 quart slow cooker with non stick spray. Add in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, minced onion, and mustard. Pour milk over everything, cover, and turn on low for one hour. Remove cover and stir. Return the cover and cook an additional hour, or until cheese is completely melted. Stir in chopped bacon, reserving some to sprinkle on top as garnish. This is best served directly from the Crockpot!

Admit it, wouldn't this dip be great the next night you're watching the winter games? I thought so!

  2. So many wonderful flavors in this dish! Going on my must-try list!

  3. That looks like such a delicious way to start out the day! I love banana breakfasts!
