Football! It’s done for the year, but at the end of it all, I made this hot bacon and blue cheese filled dip. Goodness, it was tasty but not an everyday snack. Yikes! You should try it sometime though. Your guests will like you. I found the recipe on Serious Eats.
- 6 thick slices lean smoked bacon
- 1 small onion – minced
- 2 T. all-purpose flour
- 1/2 C. milk
- 1/2 C. lager beer
- 1 t. Worcestershire sauce
- Cayenne pepper to taste
- 1/2 pound blue cheese, crumbled
- sliced bread or bread sticks
In a large skillet, fry the bacon over moderate heat till almost crisp, drain on paper towels, and crumble coarsely.
Pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of fat from the skillet, add the onion, and stir 3 minutes. Add the flour and stir 3 minutes longer. Whisking, add the milk and beer, then add the Worcestershire and cayenne. Bring the mixture to a low boil, whisking, cook for 2 minutes, and remove from the heat. Add the bacon and blue cheese and stir till the cheese is melted.
Transfer the dip to a small bowl and serve with bread.
Notes: As I said, it certainly tastes good.
Servings: Big appetizer for a group
