Take a Dip

I'm joining in the fun and posting a dip recipe from a recent southern living mag. Here it is: Blue Cheese-Bacon Dip

3 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
7 bacon slices chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 packages cream cheese softened
1/3 cup half and half
4 oz crumbed blue cheese
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat walnuts in a skillet over medium low heat 3-5minutes or until toasted and fragrant. Remove from skillet. Cook chopped bacon in skillet for 10min or until crisp. drain. Wipe skillet then add garlic and saute one minute. Beat cream cheese on medium speed with mixer. Gradually add half and half. Stir in bacon, garlic, blue cheese, and chives. Spoon mixture into 2 (2 cup) individual baking dishes. Bake at 350 for 20-25min. or until golden and bubbly. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Serve with grapes, pears, flatbreads or crackers. Enjoy!!
