Hot Bacon & Cheddar Dip with Bourbon Spicy-Maple Syrup
Last month, Southern Baked joined the Pappy & Co. team in Louisville to celebrate the collaboration of our Father's Day collection with delicious food & even better company! We even got the chance to create recipes inspired by our Southern-heritage, including upgrading my favorite appetizer dish, Hot Bacon & Cheddar Dip! We used Pappy's Bourbon Barrel-Aged Spicy Maple Syrup to give this dish an extra kick of flavor, sweetness, and heat! This recipe is perfect for munching on throughout the day as you catch-up with friends or while you watch your favorite game!
I hope you enjoy this special recipe as much as we did!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook up all your bacon, half way to crispy, take out and drizzle the Bourbon Spicy-Maple Syrup directly onto the bacon strips; continue cooking.
Beat the cream cheese in a bowl until smooth & fluffy. Add in the mayonnaise, cheese, chives, and 1/2 of the bacon; mix well. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish & sprinkle with the remaining bacon and crushed crackers.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until brown and bubbly. Take out and drizzle more of the syrup onto the top of this Serve warm with crostini crackers.
