I’ve never been known for *healthy* cooking. If it was good enough for my ancestors, it’s good enough for me. That said, the Bacon-Blue Cheese dip below has about a million calories and probably the same amount of fat…but on one those days that you don’t care much about such things, give this recipe a try. It’s wonderful as a special treat, and goes very fast at any party.
You will need :
Large, heavy skillet
Medium baking dish with cover ( or use tin foil )
8-10 slices bacon
1 pkg. cream cheese ( softened )
2 cloves garlic( peel and mince )

4-5-0z blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup half and half
