Bacon Cheese Dip...an easy appetizer or snack

If this seems unusual, well, so be it...We have been a cold dip family. Chips, veggies, what have you...the dips have been cold...the way we thought they were intended. No more. Thanks to this warm Cheesy Bacon Dip, we have learned how to embrace the warmth. The heat needed to melt the cheese really allows the ingredients to blend until the flavor profile is literally outstanding! The bacon and green onions provide a comfort food element to complete the dip, which pairs well with everything we've tried. It is a perfect dish for the holidays, game days, or any cold day in between. If you're making it for a crowd, you can use a small slow cooker to keep it warm throughout the event. You'll get rave reviews for this easy-to-make dip!
