well, the super bowl is a distant memory again for another year. although, there are many more sporting events coming up where appetizers are going to be needed for sports fans of all types. i found this recipe from a New Orleans cookbook, where the recipes were submitted by home cooks and not chefs. i find those books to have some of the best recipes ever.
this one was called bacon dip and was excellent. i only made small amount this time, but if i have a large group over, i will certainly make this one again. it was just that good.
i would also say that this is a guys favorite, and a great recipe for those tailgate parties.
here is how the recipe was printed in the book:
8 ounces sour cream, 1 jar bacon bits, 1 pack Italian dressing mix–dry powder, and 1 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese.
mix all of these ingredients together and refrigerate for several hours. serve with crackers or chips.
when i prepared this recipe, i only took a portion of these ingredients and it was very good. i also used real bacon in a package found in the salad dressing section of the market, instead of the bacon bits in a jar.
