Warm Blue Cheese and Bacon Dip

Posted by: Maggie

Please excuse the horrendous accompanying photo, and just trust me that this recipe is delicious. I made this a few weeks ago when Annie came to DC to visit, and devoured about 3/4 of it myself over the course of the evening (it was awesome as leftover drunk food after a few too many Guinnesses at Pat Troy's) We ate it with Triscuits, but it would also be delicious with tortilla chips or a sliced baguette. The fresh herb selection at my grocery store was seriously lacking, so I was forced to leave the chives out, but will definitely be including them next time.

What you'll need: (Note: My work computer is being a dumbbutt and seems to want me to actually do work. It's not letting me upload the ingredient pic for some reason. Will try again later.)

7 slices bacon
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c half and half
4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
2 T chopped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp. Let cool slightly, then crumble. Place garlic in hot bacon grease and cook until soft, about one minute.

Place cream cheese and half in half in a medium bowl. Beat with electric mixer until well blended. Stir in bacon, garlic, blue cheese, and chives. Transfer to a medium baking dish.

Bake covered in preheated oven about 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
