I am always looking for a fun delicious spread to serve on crackers or spread on hearty ridged potato chips during the holidays. As a Chef friend of mine says…”Just add bacon and everyone will love it!”…so I added bacon to one of my favorite spreads to create “Spicy Bacon Butter”.
Spicy Bacon Butter
2 (2.52 ounces) packages pre-cooked bacon (microwave bacon until crisp), crumbled
8 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1 ounce ranch dressing and dip mix
2 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions, white and some of the green part, chopped
2 ounce jar pimentos, drained
1 tablespoon medium peri-peri hot sauce (add a little more if you like super spicy!)
Cracker assortment for serving
Place cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl and bring to room temperature to soften. Add ranch dressing and dip mix and mix until well combined. Add cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon, pimentos and peri-peri sauce and mix until well combined. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve on assorted crackers.
As we get ready to greet a new year…
thought I would share some of my favorite signs from the past twelve months…Happy New Year!
