One of my favorite things about the holidays is the time I get to spend with family and friends. I love to entertain and the holidays are a perfect excuse for me to host casual gatherings in my home. It’s also a perfect excuse for me to cook and create recipes for everyone to enjoy. One thing that always makes an appearance at any holiday party I host is Keebler Town House Crackers.
I’m going to be honest, I love “picky foods”, especially dips. Town House Crackers are a year-round pantry staple in our house. The kids love to snack on them and I love to serve them at parties with my favorite dips and cheeses. Dips are perfect for entertaining because they are not only quick and easy to make but also can be prepared in advance so you don’t have to worry about your time management when your guests arrive. Today, I am going to share with you my Spicy Swiss & Bacon Dip. I’m slightly addicted to anything bacon and this dip is just that….ADDICTING!
I recently headed out to my local Target to pick up the ingredients for this delicious dip. Target always has a great selection of , well, everything. I headed straight for the cracker aisle to check out all the wonderful varieties of Town House Crackers. There were so many to choose from but since this dip is a little spicy, I opted for a more simple Town House Cracker. I purchased the Town House Pita Crackers with Sea Salt and the Town House Flatbread Crisps-Sea Salt and Olive Oil – two of my favorites!
Now, to the dip….
Hello bacon! I began by browning 8 slices of chopped bacon in a non-stick skillet (and I try very hard to resist eating it.) Everything is better with bacon! After it is browned, I remove and drain on a paper towel.
In a mixing bowl, I then combine the hot chili sauce, cream cheese, mayonnaise, dijon, shredded swiss cheese, scallions and cooked bacon. Transfer to a small baking dish and bake about 18 minutes until the edges are bubbly and brown.
- 8 slices bacon chopped
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 2 tablespoons chili hot sauce add more for extra spice
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese
- 1/2 scallions chopped
- Town House Pita Crackers or Townhouse Flatbread Crisps
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a non-stick skillet, brown bacon over medium high heat. Drain bacon on paper towel.
- In mixing bowl, combine, cream cheese, hot chili sauce, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, swiss cheese scallions and bacon.
- Transfer to a small baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes or until edges are light brown and bubbly.
This dip is perfect for entertaining. It can also be easily doubled for a larger crowd. Town House Crackers are the perfect companion to this dip. I hope you enjoy!
