Bacon and Swiss Dip

Bacon and swiss dip

Where there’s life there’s hope and need of vittles. –J.R.R. Tolkien

I got this recipe from my friend Jeannette, who shared it at a work Christmas party.  The bacon makes it extra good.

  • 8 slices bacon – cooked and crumbled
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ c. mayo
  • 1 ½ c. shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 chopped scallions

Combine and bake at 400 degrees for 18 min.  Serves about 8.

Crockpot Bacon Cheese Potatoes

crockpot cheese potatoes


  • 1/4 pound bacon, diced – Bake it first in the oven until done, then dice it and place in the crock pot.
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese, thinly sliced (shredded is fine)
  • salt and pepper
  • butter
  • Green Onions (optional)


  1. Line crock-pot with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished – this will help to not stick and to steam the potatoes – also to keep them from getting discolored or mushy.
  2. Layer half each of the bacon, onions and potatoes in the crock-pot.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with (real) butter.
  4. Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter.
  5. Cover with remaining foil.
  6. Cover and cook on low for up to 6 hours (check at 4 hours – depending on your crock pot).
  7. Add cheese for the last 20 – 30 minutes and enjoy!
