Smoky Blue Cheese Dip with a Kick

 

Smoky Blue Cheese Dip with a Kick - perfect party appetizers!  my guests gobbled this up! eclecticallyvintage.com

One day, while listening to the melodious clank of rib bones landing in the galvanized bucket set on the table at Blue Smoke restaurant in New York, I came across the most amazing dip that put all other dips to shame.

I’m not talking about those runny dips from the supermarket.  No, those pale in comparison.

I’m talking chunky, hearty, yummy, cheesy goodness – and of course, bacon makes everything better.

So when I came across the original recipe, of course I had to make it – and now everyone begs me for the recipe.

What I really love is that it’s simple and you can whip it up in advance – a no stress appetizer.

  2. Back in the late 70′s I worked in a pizza joint. We used to make our own blue cheese dressing to serve with chicken wings and your recipe is so much like it. Bottled dressings/dips can’t hold a candle to home made! I love the addition of bacon and onions, I’ll definitely be trying your recipe.
    Happy New Year, Kelly!
    Debbie :)

  15. You can then add files from your computer to ensure that they
    remain relevant. Look at Dan Frommer’s analysis of 10 years of Mac sales. As we continue to face persistent problems related to human violence, economic inequality and technologically created threats to the biosphere, we need to acknowledge that technology alone cannot solve our problems. Patents involving touch user interfaces, which the Nexus lacks. You need to use the on-screen keyboard and become proficient with it, the iBook will be a learning curve.

  16. This looks and sound delicious! My family loves dips!

  17. This looks amazing Kelly! My husband will love this! Thanks for linking up at the Summer Inspiration Link Party! Have a great weekend!

  18. Found your site through Thistlewood Farms link party. I love blue cheese. Will be pinning this! Thanks for sharing.
