Charleston Cheese Dip

I definitely had to try this delicious looking recipe for Charleston Cheese Dip... especially when Charleston is so close to home! Plus, the recipe is Trisha Yearwood's & comes from her recipe book, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen.

This recipe would be great for the upcoming football season.


1/2 cup mayo
8 oz pk cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated monterey jack cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped (I left this out just as I do most all veggies... even though I don't mind these, I didn't feel it was necessary to purchase them from the store.)
Dash of cayenne pepper (I left this out too for the same reason above--spices are expensive & I don't normally like to buy them unless I use them often.)
8 Ritz crackers, finely crushed
8 slices of bacon, crumbled


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix cream cheese, mayo, sharp cheddar, monterey jack, onions, and pepper (if you wish).
Transfer mixture into shallow baking dish.
Top with crushed Ritz crackers.
Bake 15 minutes.
Top with bacon.
Serve immediately with crackers, corn chips, or bagel chips.

This recipe was as good as it looks & definitely worth the effort (which wasn't much at all). You do need to serve it immediately though. I sealed up what was left over and tried it later, and it wasn't all that great.
