So, apparently I have a penchant for ‘quick and easy’ recipes. **This recipe is from my best friend/cousin/person who set Curtis and I up, I forgot to give her credit earlier :)** I love the holidays- everything about them. Except the frazzled, hectic, ‘work-all-day-then-do-all-the-stuff-required-for-the-holidays’ stress. It gets overwhelming! So having some easy dishes to bring to parties is really helpful especially in this holiday season that we all love so much 🙂
So choose a really short Christmas song, and let’s get cooking!
Voila! That’s it! It’s just a trip to the store and some layering. I served it with ‘everything’ crackers- the ones that have all the seeds in them.
And I didn’t use any measurements, it’s one of those ‘approximation’ recipes 🙂
P.S. I know the apricot jam sounds a little weird with everything else, but please try it. It’s savory and delicious!!! And you won’t be able to stop eating it.
Party Cracker Dip with Bacon
2 bricks cream cheese, I used reduced fat
1 small jar apricot jam
2 cups (ish) shredded cheddar (medium, don’t use sharp cheddar)
2 bunches of green onions, chopped
cooked (very crispy!!) and chopped bacon- I used about half a pack of the smallest package available. If you don’t want to dirty your kitchen with a frying pan, use precooked bacon! The kind you toss in the microwave- a lot easier, but I personally feel that the flavor is better with fresh bacon 🙂
When layering, you want each layer to be mostly covered by the next, but still a little visible.
Serve with crackers and wine and enjoy!
