Swiss Cheese Bacon Dip

Among the refreshments I served at my open house several weeks ago was a hot cheese dip.  Several persons commented that they really liked it and wanted the recipe.  Thanks to my friend Rebecca who shared this recipe with me several years ago. 

Since I can't remember who asked for the recipe, I thought I would post it on here.  And unfortunately I don't have any pictures to share.  But use your and creamy Swiss cheese with smoky bacon and fresh green onions...yummy!  Do you know how much I love bacon? 

Without further ado...

Swiss Cheese Dip

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
8 oz Swiss cheese, shredded
2 chopped green onions
1/3 cup crumbled bacon

Cream together the cream cheese and mayonnaise. 
Add shredded Swiss cheese to mixture and blend thoroughly. 
Mix in bacon and green onions. 
Spread mixture in microwaveable dish. 
Heat in microwave for 2-4 minutes, stir every minute. 
You'll know it's done when it's hot and bubbly.

Serve warm with either crackers or sliced baguette bread (my preferred method).  Garnish with crumbled bacon or chopped green onions on top.

*Note:  Also works well to serve dip in a mini crock pot.  You can either heat dip first in microwave and keep warm in crock pot; or start it an hour ahead of time in crock pot.

*The original recipe calls for crumbled crackers on top, but I skip that part.

  3. You're welcome, Jeané and Heather! BTW, I have used light mayo in this one and it turned out just fine. Sometime will try light cream cheese as well and see how that goes! Enjoy!
