These next two weekends are big for football - with the ProBowl and then the SuperBowl, it's time to cheer on your favorite division and team, and also time to make some fun dips! Today and Monday, I'll give you two new recipes perfect for eating while football viewing.
This BLT Dip was actually christened in my family this winter as a DINNER! I know. I did also serve fruit. (I think.) Dips for dinner once in a while are not a bad thing, and as the chef and dinner presenter, you do score big points with the kids. My family LOVES bacon and they love BLTs, and it was the kids who actually stumbled upon this recipe and asked me to make it. So we had a snacky dinner, and it was a huge success. We ate this with toasted baguette slices.
Delicious is an understatement.
You'll be the hit of the party when you make this, football season or not!

12 slices bacon
2 - 8 oz. packages low fat cream cheese
2/3 cup sour cream (low fat or fat free is ok)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 ½ cups shredded romaine lettuce
Cook the bacon until crisp and crumble into small pieces.
Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar, Mozzarella, mustard, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, 1/2 cup of the crumbled bacon, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl and stir together until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to a greased 2-quart baking dish and spread evenly across the bottom. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining bacon crumbles, the diced tomatoes and the shredded lettuce. Serve hot with crackers or baguette slices.
