Creamy BLT Dip
Creamy BLT Dip
Our good friend Barbara Thurman from Carlyle, Illinois, sent us this recipe for an incredibly tasty dip. Barbara says, "Put the 'L' in BLT! Simply spoon dip into a hollowed-out head of lettuce for serving."
1 lb. bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. sour cream
2 tomatoes, chopped
Optional: chopped fresh chives
Blend together bacon, mayonnaise and sour cream; chill. Stir in tomatoes just before serving; sprinkle with chives, if desired. Makes 2-1/2 cups.
Herbed Bagel Chips
butter-flavored non-stick vegetable spray
9 frozen mini bagels, thawed
1-1/2 t. Italian seasoning
1/4 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
Spray a baking sheet lightly with vegetable spray; set aside. Slice each bagel horizontally into 4 slices; place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Spray bagel slices lightly with vegetable spray. Combine spices in a jar with a shaker lid; sprinkle over chips. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes, or until crisp. Makes 3 dozen.
