Still using up all that cream cheese! This was a good way to use some of it. Another very simple and quick put-together recipe for a lunch or party dish. I hope you like it. I'm thinking this would be really great with some almond crackers. Add more bacon if you wish. I did not measure the seasonings, sorry. I just shook them in to taste. Since everyone's taste is different with how much or how little you like in something like this I thought I'd leave that up to you.
BACON ONION GARLIC CHEESE DIP OR SPREAD
8 ounces Philadelphia 1/3 less fat cream cheese (Use the full fat if you like, but this is less calories and less than 1 g carbs per serving)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons bacon grease -- warm
1 tablespoon Real Bacon Bits
onion powder -- to taste
garlic powder -- to taste
2 dashes smoked paprika
In medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, bacon grease, bacon bits, onion powder, garlic powder and smoked paprika.
Beat with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Garnish with more bacon bits if desired.
Serve with raw vegetables, or use as a spread on crackers or in a sandwich.
