Easy Appetizer Recipe: Blue Cheese and Bacon Dip

This easy appetizer recipe is completely unsponsored….just sharing my love of blue cheese and bacon!

I went to a friend’s birthday party this weekend and was asked to bring something to share with the rest of the group. I love going places where I am asked to cook something…it gives me a chance to play around with new recipes and get other people’s opinions of them. This blue cheese and bacon dip seemed to be a big hit with my friends. Blue cheese is not something my husband cares for so I don’t buy it very often but I absolutely love it! And paired with bacon this dip was deliciously creamy and decadent. Definitely NOT all too healthy but sometimes you just need to enjoy your food without worrying about whether it is good for you or not! I don’t usually buy a lot of bacon but when I do I always look for local or sustainably raised options. You can check out Applegate  or look at your local Whole Foods Market. If you are looking for an easy appetizer recipe for a party, this one is a good choice! If you would like to see the original recipe check out MyRecipes.com.
