RECIPE: Charleston Cheese Dip

Charleston Cheese Dip This recipe is Trisha Yearwood's and comes from her recipe book, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen.

It's a great tailgate option 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. I don't mind onions but didn't feel it necessary to purchase them.)
Dash of cayenne pepper (I also left this out for the same reason)
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 tasty as it looks and worth the effort (which wasn't much effort at all). Serve immediately. I sealed up the leftovers and it didn't taste all that great later.
