Roasted Garlic? Check. Bacon? Check. It’s a Roasted Garlic Bacon Dip to die for!
I’m a little bit of a garlic addict, roasted garlic is the best. And if you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you already totally know I’m a bacon addict. When you combine the two together, you get this amazing roasted garlic bacon dip that goes so beautifully with chunks of bread, fresh veggies, pretzels and crackers. We also make homemade tortilla chips to enjoy with the dip.
It doesn’t really matter what you serve with it, because this dip is just gooood. I mean, knock your socks off, eat it all at one time and look around to see if anyone has anything else to dip in it because you ran out of stuff so you just start using your finger to get it all out of the bowl, good.
It has an extremely strong roasted garlic flavor, paired beautifully with the savory bacon flavor. Add in some green onions and you’ve got a great flavor combination that just intermingles together on your tongue and leaves you begging for more. You know the potato chips you can’t eat just one of? Yeah… you won’t be dipping just one of anything in there. I promise.
See all that bread in the photo? Two minutes. Gone.
We smothered each piece as deep into the dip as we could, submerging our finger tips and then of course you couldn’t let that dip on our fingers go to waste so we sat sucking our fingers between each bite. Too much? Unfortunately it’s true. ha!
It’s just good. You need to make it. Soon.
This week our #SundaySupper team got together and created some great Tailgating recipes for you. I’m not a huge sports fan *gasp* I know, I know. In fact, quite frankly I really could live without them almost completely. But, I do enjoy going to the tailgating parties… why? The food! It’s the best! (Super Bowl Parties rock too!)
There are tons of recipes to check out, so just scroll after my Roasted Garlic and Bacon Dip recipe and you can see them all.
And Now…. the Roasted Garlic Bacon Dip Recipe
- 2 heads of garlic
- olive oil for roasting the garlic
- 8 slices of bacon
- 1½ cups of sour cream
- ¾ cup of mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons (or more) of finely chopped green onions
- 1 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
- ¼ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper
- Using a knife, cut the tops off the two heads of garlic. Put the garlic inside tinfoil wrap, drizzle with some olive oil and the close the foil completely. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes or until a fork mashed on top of the garlic smashes it.
- Crisp the bacon and crumble using a food processor so the bacon is finely chopped.
- In a large bowl, mix the sour cream and mayonnaise together well. Add the finely chopped green onions, the finely chopped bacon and and blend together.
- Mix in the Worcestershire sauce, the salt and the pepper.
- Eat. But not all at once. Like I did.
It’s amazing. All that roasted garlic flavor and everything is better with bacon. ha!
Don’t you agree that roasted garlic really does add something to dips, spreads, etc. Oh and what we had leftover? Which wasn’t a lot I might add. We smothered all over a sub sandwich the next day. I do this with almost every dip. If it can pass the “I’ll eat it all in one sitting test” and then I have enough to spread on a sandwich and it tastes good, I know it’s a keeper and will be made again and again.
Join us this evening, Sunday September 9, 2012 as we share our favorite tailgate recipes and tips. Hop on twitter at 7pm EST for the live #SundaySupper chat. In fact, you can catch us EVERY Sunday at 7pmEST for a live twitter chat, and we’d really love to have you!
