Warm Blue Cheese Dip with Garlic and Bacon


Even people who don't like blue cheese love this hot bacon-blue cheese dip. It can be served with vegetables, but I find people like it best with French bread.

  • 7 slices bacon

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup half-and-half

  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Cook bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain; leave grease in the pan. Crumble bacon when cool enough to handle.

  2. Cook garlic in bacon grease over medium heat until soft, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Beat cream cheese and half-and-half in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until blended. Stir in bacon, garlic, blue cheese, and chives. Transfer mixture to a medium baking dish and cover.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
