I saw this recipe in a magazine several months ago and had a perfect opportunity to make it when our staff got together for a luncheon recently. It’s quick and easy to prepare and so yummy! The dip was a HUGE hit … but then, what’s not to like about BACON and CHEESE?! Seriously, if you want to get lots of compliments at your next gathering, give this recipe a try … and then let me know what you think!
