Warm Bacon-Swiss Spread
My friends and I get together once a month to play cards...and to sample a selection of appetizers! One of their favorites is this creamy spread.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.

- 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

- Assorted crackers
- Place cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 30 seconds to soften. Stir in the Swiss cheese, mayonnaise and onion until blended.
