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

Good but salty - not sure if it was the brand of cheese or the bacon (I used less bacon than the recipe called for but it was still quite salty) Read More

Delicious spread - very flavorful! I kept mine in crockpot at a recent party and it had a tendency to dry out - suggest adding more half & half if you are planning on eating it over the course of an evening. Read More

Even though I don't know if I'll make this again I had to give it 5 stars. It proved true to the other reviews - even people who don't like blue cheese liked it. I immediately tasted the blue cheese although I made it so I knew it was in there. However two other people were surprised when I told them blue cheese was in it. I served it with thin toasted slices of french bread. It doesn't make a very large quanity. But it was enough for a small group. I must say it was a nice change from all of the typical dips or appetizers. Thanks! Read More

Thanks Carol for a wonderful recipe. I made this recipe as directed except I did add four garlic cloves than recommended. I used Tricuits and toasted french bread with flavor EVOO. This was very good. I would definately make this again. Also next time I will try the New Rosemary and Cracked Pepper Triscuits. Read More

Yum! I used a bottle of real bacon pieces instead due to lack of time. Served with sliced French bread and it was gone in no time. Very rich and tasty! Read More

This dip was a HUGE hit with my friends at the marina! The only thing I would do would be to try low sodium bacon next time. I could taste the blue cheese but it wasn't overpowering at all. This disappeared so fast that I only got to taste it once and everyone asked me to make it again. If I had doubled the recipe there wouldn't be any leftovers. Read More
