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!!

It's true everything tastes better with bacon! Except, we bought bacon chocolate bars once and it's the only thing my family did not love bacon in. I couldn't believe it! This recipe brings back memories - I used to make something similar. This is a wonderful recipe and sounds like such a crowd pleaser. I like the idea of baked flatbread with it. I'll keep it in mind!

Thank you so much for your kind comment about my daughter and I wish all the best for your mom.

Sharon-Love your hot bacon crab dip...a perfect appetizer for guests, or just for a snack. I haven't made hot crab dip in years, thanks for sharing.

Also thank you for your sweet comment!

Oh yum! I live on the coast, and we have a ton of crab meat available. I'll have to give this a try.
