I made the bacon cheese dip for our Christmas party at work and everyone just love it and wanted the recipe. Instead of cooking the bacon, I bought the real bacon bits in a jar which worked really well. My daughter wanted me to bring the leftovers home but there weren't any! Thank you so much for posting the recipe.
Question on the bacon cheese dip?
Is the cream cheese amount right-32 oz.? This must make alot!
If I remember correctly, at our last wedding we had 250- 285 invited and about 200 responded they were coming and that 20% of that came. So one can figure that about 480 or less will come. That still is a lot of people.
But these recipes will serve a lot of people without a lot of expense and work.
Little Stuffed tomatoes could work. Perhaps use roma's and when you cut them in half you will have 2 servings or 2 pieces.
Pinwheels are good. Use pieces of ham or ham slice's that you would use for sanwiches's oanother wors "luncheon meat". spread them with softened cream cheese.I use about 3 or 4 slices for each roll, then roll up in them a dill pickle. Start rolling with one slice of meat, continue with the next slice where you left off with the previous slice and continue like that. Then wrap in plastice wrap tightly, twist the ends tightly and then place in a bread pan and keep in frig. you can do this the day before , so that they become very firm. make sure the pickle in drained and throughly dry before using it. I use whole pickle's, drained and wiped dry with a paper towel. I also have another pinwheel type appetizer using a large tortilla. You make a filling and it makes lots of them for not a lot of money. There is a filling but I have to look it up and then when I return home later tonight I will post it here for you. This recipe makes a lot without a lot of time and expense. Before serving ,slice about1/2 inch thick.
I have another one made with a spread and tortilla's . I will post them later today or tomorrow. But both of these are asy to make, inexpensive and easy to carry somewhere.
These are perfect to carry somewhere and when I serve these I am always asked for the recipe.
here is the recipe I promised you.
Large flour tortillas
16 oz.of cream cheese, mix with mixer
1/ 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 bunch green onions chopped
4 1/2 oz. choppd black olives
2 1/2 oz canned diced green chiles, mild
2 or 3 c. cooked diced chicken
In a pan cook chicken with butter,garlic,salt and pepper to taste.Then blend all ingredients except chicken. Then fold in chicken. Spread mixture over tortilla about 1/4 inch thick. roll up gently and very tightly so they are not hollow.Place seam side down in a glass dish. Take a kitchen towel dampened and lay over the tortilla's. Cover with plactic wrap. Lasts longer unsliced. When ready to serve slice 1/4 inch thick.
Can substitute the chicken with ham or beef. Can be served with a salsa sauce but I serve without. You can serve with hot or mild sauce or salsa to dip in. I didn't care to do this but at least you have all sorts of options with this recipe. I also have used hamburger browned, leftover beef pulled or ground or diced.
I have also omitted the first line of the instructions and just mixed everything together without cooking it in the pan . However you still can mix in some of those spices to your taste.
Hope you enjoy wether it is for the wedding or for any other occasions or social events.
How about veggie pizza?
Roll-ups of ham, cream cheese and pickle? They can be cut into bite size pieces.
Stuffed cherry tomatoes?
My mind is drawing a blank.
