In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add garlic to drippings in skillet; sauté until soft, about one minute. Beat together cream cheese and half-and-half with an electric mixer on high speed. Stir in crumbled bacon, garlic, blue cheese and chives; spoon into an ungreased 8"x8" baking pan. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until lightly golden. Serve with baguette slices and celery stalks. Serves 12.
