I woke up this morning at 2am. I do that every night actually. I wake up thinking about a tv show, a book, a recipe, or any random crap my brain deems I need to be reminded of. This morning I woke up thinking I bought walnuts for a recipe but never used them. Which recipe did I forget to add walnuts to?
I had friends over for cocktails and made a few yummy finger foods. I really wanted to pair my freshly made bacon with blue cheese. I found this blue cheese bacon dip recipe at Baked Bree.
Of course I made a few changes, some I’ve already admitted, unwittingly.
7 bacon slices, cooked and minced (I use my thick-cut applewood smoked bacon)
a sprinkling of powdered garlic
1 package cream cheese, softened
1/3(ish) cup half and half
1/2(ish) cup blue cheese crumbles
1/3 cup toasted chopped walnuts (accidently omitted, will add next time)
With a hand mixer (because I don’t have a kitchenaid), I mixed cream cheese and half and half until smooth. add blue cheese and bacon mixing or stirring until well combined.
Instead of serving this as a dip, I made baked wonton cups that I filled with my blue cheese bacon yumminess. Place a wonton wrappers in a mini muffin tin and bake at 350* for 7-9 minutes or until lightly golden. These aren’t a tasty as a phyllo cup, but crazy easy!
Dig in and enjoy!

You’re killing me Lula!! I love this combo! Jeez, Margie
Margie- what I don’t show you is the balance to the decadence. You’d be bored silly with my morning yogurt and muesli and all the fruits and veggies I munch throughout my work day. I only share the food porn. it’s more fun for both of us that way!
Absolutely gorgeous – love blue cheese dip but have never put bacon in it before. Yum!
Bacon makes everything better!
Looks yummy! These are two of my favorite things. This would be awesome on top of some steel cut oats with a drizzle of olive oil. I love savory oats for breakfast.
Funny how you always wake up at the same time. So do I but it’s 3:30 am. Every night.
Savory oats Batman?! How come I didn’t think of that? Oh the wheels they are a turning, Gretchen. You may have just unleashed a monster. Thanks!
It tasted great! I am a huge fan of this recipe, even without the nuts. I didn’t want to make a pig of myself, so I had to walk away!
