Cheesy Bacon Horsey Dip

I came up with his combination on a whim the morning of our holiday party and it ended up working perfectly. This dip is creamy and cheesy with just a bit of bite from the horseradish.  If you choose to omit the bacon and Worcestershire, 3-4 Tbsp of soy sauce would give a comparable yet vegetarian sense of umami.

We paired ours with pretzel chips and carrot sticks.

Cheesy Bacon Horsey Dip

Yield: 1.5 cups; Prep Time: 15 minutes

  • 8 oz package reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip or reduced fat mayo
  • 1/2 cup parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp prepared horseradish
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 slices turkey bacon, roughly chopped

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and use mixer on medium speed to combine.  Place in a covered container in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.

You could also use a food processor but be careful not to overmix; you want some chunks of bacon embedded throughout.
