Bacon Cheese Dip Recipe from ChefD

Bacon Cheese Dip RecipeAbout the recipe:

I am excited to share with you our most requested recipe, Bacon Cheddar Dip.  This recipe came about as Gay Lea asked for something new and exciting for Old Sharpe cheese and I created this.  The secret to the recipe is, you guessed it Old Sharpe Cheese, a very forgiving cheese to work with.  It is also perfect in a Mac and Cheese.


1 cup Nutrafarms bacon, diced
1 cup Mascapone cheese
1 pkg. Ivan Hoe Old Sharpe cheese
1 500ml container of Gay Lea sour cream
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced

In a non-stick pan over med high heat sauté bacon, garlic and onions, until
onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium heat and
add in mascarpone cheese and old Sharpe and continue to melt. Once
cheese is completely melted stir in sour cream until completely smooth.
Serve ¾ cup of dip with 2 cups your favourite corn chips or Martins Apple

Chefs Tip: Old Sharpe has 35% cream in it so it melts really nicely.
