Hot Bacon and Crab Dip

One of my favorite parts of subscribing to The Food Network magazine is the 50 Things to Make with ( fill in the blank...) section. Well September's issue did not disappoint, "Bacon" was the topic and of course I wanted to make all 50 right then and there, but come on that would be bacon overload... or would it??   Because really what can’t you do with bacon remember my post about The Big E, and the chocolate covered bacon, Bacon really does make everything better!! I had made this in August for a family dinner when my brother and his family were visiting from New York. It was a big hit along with some other dips that I made, and so we decided to make it again for Sunday Funday. It is not only easy peasy but absolutely delicious and would be great for a party. I made mine with Flatouts cut up, and baked in the oven and they are so good. You could use any type of scooper you wanted really or even some French bread sliced and baked lightly. Either way it is so good that there won't be any leftover ( boooo)  which was sad but that just means we will have to make it again!!
