Reviews for Dijon-Bacon Dip for Pretzels
"I took it to an office party. Since everyone was watching their weight, I subbed half low-fat mayo/half greek yogurt to reduce the calories. Everyone raved about it."
"This is my go-to recipe for any family or church gathering! It is amazing! So easy to make. I have family members who have to eat gluten free and they love this dip with corn tortilla chips too."
"This is a twist on a dip I have made for years (Dijon & sour cream). I prefer my dip to be less mayo and more sour cream or yogurt, but others in my family like this the way it is. I found making the dip the night before I plan to serve it allows the flavors to meld better. We like our dips to be more tangy, so I added a bit more than the max suggested for the horseradish. It's a big hit and I'll definitely be making it again and again. A really good thing is if I want to make just a bit for me to eat, I can adjust the amounts of everything very easily; it also doubles or triples easily."
"I would say to those that didn't like it so much to add sour cream for half of the mayo or cream cheese. Cooking is all about experimenting."
"I have made this several times. I always get asked for the recipe. It is so easy and I always have the ingredients on hand."
"Perfect both as a dip for pretzels or vegis, or as a sandwich spread. Curious though that a field editor complained about the mustard taste in a mustard dip. I'd think that's what you'd expect to taste! How do these people get to be field editors anyway?"

"I really liked this, but some of my party guests did not b/c they did not like horseradish, I am eating the leftovers w/ cut up raw veggies and I love it though. I will make it again for me defidently as a veggie dip, but most likely not for a party again. Again I love it though, but I love horseradish!"
"I used fat free mayo and I crumbled up turkey bacon and I thought it turned out great!"
"Yummy! I also put it on a burger. Very good!"
"I made this for my husband & he loves it & has requested it for the future. My 11 year old son thought it was ok & i liked it. This is perfect for people who like the taste of mustard & horseradish. I would say this is a very adult oriented dip. Yummy!"
"I have madethis recipe several time and it has gone over really well. I keep losing the recipe and have to go on the internet to find it before a party. Sue Bullock, Clayville,NY"
"I made this a year ago and everyone loved it. I have made it a few times since I've had the recipe and it always goes over very well. When added the hrseradish, play it by taste."
"Sorry to say, but this is a VERY dissapointing recipe. It tasted like NOTHING except mustard and was the consistency of a salad dressing instead of a dip. I TRIED to save it by adding extra mayo, bacon and horseradish (almost twice the amount called for) to take away the too intense mustard flavor, but it still was not up to snuff! I am debating whether I should even bring it to the Thanksgiving party I am going to (I hate to waste food) It might be ok for someone who just likes to dip pretzels in mustard, but then why waste the fat and calories by adding the bacon and mayo if all you can taste is the mustard?"
"I made this for a function at work and it was okay. I probably won't make it againCarol"
"For diabetic folks just skip the pretzels and dip lo carb veggies instead,we have to eat too!"
"I agree--way too much fat for a "pretzel" dip!"
"So, use fat-free mayo and fake bacon, already! Jeezsh, the food police are everywhere..."
"That is way too much fat per serving even for 1 time per year!"
