Hot Bacon Cheese Dip
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
Tortilla chips or French bread slices
In a slow cooker, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, cream, Worcestershire sauce, onion, and mustard. Cover and cook for two hours, or until cheeses are melted, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, stir in crumbled bacon. Serve warm with tortilla chips or bread. Makes 2 cups. The original recipe made twice this much, so double it if you have a crowd.
This is a great appetizer to serve if you are having friends over because all the prep is done ahead of time. Cook the bacon ahead, then put the cheeses in the crock pot to melt in advance, and it will be ready when your guests arrive.
