"A 5 star dip. Super easy and Cheesy Good. I added extra scallions including the green tops. This dip needs some chill time and it will be good to go. Use a good grade of cheddar cheese. I grated mine by hand. I also like the way the bacon shows its face as well. Ritz Crackers are the perfect choice. The Buttery cracker really compliments the richness of this spread. I made just half of the recipe. Perfect for just 2.

Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor. A yummy must try ."
