I found this Bacon Cheddar Dip recipe by Plain Chicken through Pinterest (where else??) and I've been dying to make it. It's seriously the simplest recipe ever. No cooking or waiting for cream cheese to soften. Just mix up and serve. Well, technically you're supposed to let it marinate for 24 hours but who can wait for that??
Next, you just add in your real bacon bits (not the fake soy stuff you get in the bottle!) and shredded cheddar. If you use the bagged bacon instead of making it yourself, make sure you take out the little absorbent packets before dumping it in! :)
Mix up and refrigerate for 24 hours (if you can wait)! So yummy!!
