Reviews forWarm Bacon Cheese Spread
"I wasn't able to access the recipe when I needed to make this, so made it with cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing powder, bacon and shredded cheese. Forgot to heat it up and it was still an absolute hit! YUMMY!"
"Everyone raved about this recipe!!! I prepared as is with no changes. Definitely a keeper."
"We loved it and so easy to make."
"Making this now and it has a wonderful flavor. I did not serve in a bread bowl because of family having celiac and not being able to have gluten. I prepped as normal but then threw it in a mini crockpot (for dips) to warm and serve. I used sweet onion because that's all I had on hand and used much less, probably just a few pinches to get some flavor. Will keep this in hand for an easy go to for parties!"
"Omg I made this last weekend for some friends I should have made two they just loved it thank you so much this is a keeper !!!"
"To me, this just screams out for garlic and then it would be perfect!"
"make it every holiday. it's the best"
"I am being asked again to make this fabulous dip. Even the bread bowl gets eaten!!! Try it! It will not disappoint!"
"Received rave reviews!"
"I am usually not welcome to attend parties unless I have this dip with me! Since I don't like onions, I have never put them in it, but that does not change the rave reviews this gets."
