BLT Dip Recipe
Hey everyone! Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted a new recipe. This Christmas season was super busy for us, and blogging got pushed aside for a few days! My daughter and I spent alot of time with family and loved enjoying each others company. I had 4 days off work which was fantastic since time off work doesn't come often! I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas this year!
Both of our Christmas celebrations this year had an appetizer food theme, so I decided to try out this BLT Dip for Christmas at my Mom's house! I pulled it out of the oven and everyone devoured it! The flavors were fantastic and it was so cheesy. Yum! This is a great recipe for any party or gathering. We served it with tortilla and pretzel chips, but would also be fantastic with pita chips, crackers or crostinis! This is definitely a new favorite appetizer in our family! Big thanks to my sister Shannon for taking these amazing pictures for this post!
What's your favorite appetizer?
