When it comes to family get togethers, I’m kind of the dip master, if you will. The Crab Rangoon dip I made for Thanksgiving was a huge hit so I knew the bar was set high for the Hageman Christmas. I decided to try this Charleston cheese dip. Its cheese and bacon, how can one go wrong, really?
1/2 - cup mayonnaise
1 - 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 - cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 - cup grated Monterey jack cheese
2 - green onions, finely chopped
Dash of cayenne pepper
8 - Ritz crackers, crushed
8 - slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Monterey jack cheese, green onions and cayenne pepper.
Transfer the mixture to a shallow baking dish. Top mixture with cracker crumbs and bake for 15 minutes, or until heated through.
Remove the pan from the oven and top with the bacon. Serve immediately with corn chips, bagel chips or crackers. I used Ritz Garlic crackers and it was divine! This dip was so delicious and warm and fun. It was gobbled up immediately and I had another hit on my hands.
