8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons prepared Dijon style mustard
2 rounded teaspoons horseradish (optional)
1 1/2 cups Swiss Cheese, shredded
2-3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup smoked almonds, coarsely chopped
Sliced baguettes or crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish (if using), Swiss cheese, and scallions with cooked bacon. Transfer to a small, shallow casserole or baking dish and bake until golden and bubbly at edges, 15 to 18 minutes. Top with chopped smoked almonds. Serve with sliced baguettes and/or crackers.
What's not to love about bacon and Swiss cheese? I made this appetizer when we'd invited friends over and four adults polished the entire thing off before dinner. I used the horseradish and thought it gave the dip a nice, tangy kick! And I love the idea from Susi at Susi's Kochen and Backen Adventures to sprinkle the almonds down the center--just in case someone doesn't care for them. I recommend making this for a party or get-together, since it would be easy to eat the entire thing yourself!
