You can take a good dip anywhere. Parties, cookouts, family reunions, tailgates…you name it! Well, this is a dip everybody will want to see on the table. It’s bursting with flavor and taste. Scoop it up with a chip, piece of pita bread, or a carrot or cucumber and it is mouthwatering. And it doesn’t take long to make it either. Let’s dive into my new Smoked Bacon Blue Cheese Dip now.
I made up this recipe based on foods I really enjoy. It can be added to, or you can leave stuff out. It’s all about your personal taste.
My dip only has a few ingredients, making it one of my most simple recipes.
For this recipe, I used my Traeger Timberline 1500 with Pecan Pellets and a cast iron skillet.
I did a video showing each step of me making this dip. Feel free to follow along. I also added the directions at the end of this post.
Here we go!
I fired up my Traeger Timberline 1300 to about 350 degrees F.
Using a medium glass bowl, I added the entire block of cream cheese, bacon bits, mayonnaise, sprinkled and a good dose of the Garlic Jalapeno Rub.
I took my spatula and folded all the ingredients together.
Once the first few ingredients were mixed up good, I added about half of the blue cheese and a few of the green onions and folded them in. I kept adding a little of both and mixed them in until everything was mixed together in the bowl.
I grabbed my cast iron skillet and sprayed it with some non-stick spray. I used my spatula to get all the mixture transferred over and smoothed it out even.
My Garlic Jalapeno Rub does such a good job of adding depth and flavor to everything, I couldn’t resist giving the skillet a final sprinkle of it.
I placed the skillet on my grill for about 20-30 minutes to cook and melt together. I knew it was done when it started getting bubbly and golden brown.
I was careful, because cast iron skillets get scorching hot. Using heavy pot holders, I took the skillet off the grill and let the dip cool down for about 10 minutes. Boy, the smell was amazing! Waiting to eat it about tortured me to death.
I’m a blue cheese fan, and one bit of this dip made me think I’d died and gone to Heaven. Wow, the flavor and texture are both amazing. Creamy, zesty, savory, and my Garlic and Jalapeno Rub adds the final bit of delicious flavor. This dish will be an instant favorite wherever you decide to take it.
The easiest thing to do is make a big skillet of it, put some pita or tortilla chips beside it, and let people eat as much of it as they want.
Transfer the leftovers to a bowl and close it off with aluminum foil or a lid. It’ll keep for about 3 days in the refrigerator.
