Score! With tangy cream cheese, crumbly blue cheese, crispy bacon, and rich Dinner Bell butter, this dip is perfect for game day snacking. But don’t fret if sports aren’t your thing — this app is right at home at backyard cookouts, baby showers, and family game nights. In-laws stop by unexpectedly? The 10-minute prep means you can toss it together in no time. Serve it with a crispy baguette or some crunchy carrots and celery sticks (or both), and savor the deliciousness.

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt half of the butter. Swirl the melted butter in the pan to coat the edges. Add the garlic and cook until lightly golden. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour garlic and melted butter into the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the softened cream cheese and beat on low setting until smooth. Slowly add heavy cream, beating until combined. Add blue cheese crumbles, bacon, 2 tablespoons chopped chives and 2 tablespoons chopped pecans. Spread mixture in the bottom of the buttered cast iron pan.
  4. Place the dip in the hot oven, and bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Top with remaining chives and pecans. Serve the dip while still warm with baguette slices (see below), or cool to serve with fresh veggies.
  5. For baguettes: Cut baguette into rounds and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Liberally spread each baguette round with remaining butter and toast until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool and enjoy with blue cheese dip.
