Want to steal hearts? Let people feel comfortable and let their inner-kid out? Give them cheese to ease the vibe and let them dip and see their eyes light up. That is exactly what I did with this bacon-cheese dip recipe.
I love that even though I’ve been spending tons of weekend in the kitchen, visit different restaurants around the world, I still can get surprised by some dishes. Aside from cheese fondue I never actually had any dip, let alone make one. I’ve seen many recipes for dips popping up on my Pinterest feed so I decided to give it a try and so I created this bacon-cheese dip recipe.
Let me tell you, this bacon-cheese dip recipe is going on the table for my next dinner party for sure. How can it not? It’s cheesy, flavorful, and a great way to interact with each other. It reminds me of when Fabian and I go to a restaurant. Depending on where we go we often order a nacho platter as an appetizer to share with each other. It’s kind of our ritual now. Maybe, this one will be our new ritual at our dinner table.
