Touchdown Cheese Dip Recipe

Score a "touchdown" at your party with this bacon and cheese dip! 

½ cup mayonnaise

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

2 green onions, finely chopped

Pinch of cayenne pepper

8-10 butter crackers (we like Ritz Crackers)

8 slices of Hermann Wurst Haus Hickory-Smoked Bacon, cooked and crumbled

For perfectly crisp Hermann Wurst Haus bacon, bake in the oven. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in cold oven and then turn oven to 400° and bake for 17-20 minutes. Remove from the oven when the bacon is golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions and cayenne pepper. Transfer the mixture to a small baking dish or a pie plate. Top mixture with cracker crumbs and bake for 15 minutes, or until heated through.

Remove from the oven and top with Hermann Wurst Haus grand champion hickory-smoked bacon. Serve immediately, with buttery crackers, corn chips or bagel chips.
