Heart Attack on a Cracker

Unless you're taking it to a birthday party for someone who is turning 90 years old. Then that would just be insensitive, now wouldn't it?

That's when you call it something proper and delicious sounding, like....

Bacon and Cheddar Dip!

My dear neighbor had a 90th birthday party the other day and I couldn't possibly go empty handed. I mean, ya, I took her a little birthday present (btw...what on earth do you give someone who is 90!!) but being someone who is into food...how could I show up without something to eat? Right?

But if you're gonna serve this at a Super Bowl Party....Heart Atatck on a Cracker is totally acceptable.

My sister told me about this recipe. She found a version of it on another website. Between her small adjustments and mine....it's been altered a tiny bit, but if you wanna see how it was originally intended then check it out ----->here<------

As for me...this is what I did

6 - 8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
8 oz cream cheese, room temp
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 sleeve crackers (I used ritz) crushed
shredded parmesan cheese to top (optional)
a little more bacon and green onions to garnish

I know you don't really need step by steps for this so I'm not gonna give em.

I suggest that you use a mixer to cream the cream cheese first...(mixing by hand, no matter how many times I think...oooh, it will be fine.....it's just a lot of work) then add the mayo and sour cream. Then stir in the cheddar cheese and onions until mixed well.

Scoop into an 8x8 dish (no need to grease it...this baby has plenty of self-lube). Top with crackers and parmesan cheese

Bake in a 350' oven for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly and browned.

Garnish with more bacon and green onions and serve warm with crackers.

I wish I had a picture of it on a cracker....then you'd get the idea but you know what? There wasn't any left to bring home from the party (and I couldn't very well take it with a scoop missing, now could I? I did consider it though). Once someone dove into it, within 15 minutes it was 3/4 of the way gone....swear! And I hadn't even had any yet.

I do have to say though...once it cools off, it's not as good. But warm.....waaaaaay yum!!!

Not into cheddar? Oooooor....wanna try it differently? What about jack cheese...or pepper jack? Now that would be double yum!


  1. Ok, I have to make this soon. I love love love cheese. Yum!

  2. This is the kind of dip that you take to a party so that you don't eat it all at home first;D I can see why it vanished after the first 15 minutes because it looks delicious.

  3. I'm not turning 90 anytime soon :))) but if you brought this to my party I'd totally enjoy it. Yummy.

  4. My oh my. Love this recipe!

    Now: What do you give a 90 year old? My mother loved soaps, lotions, books (especially books), magazine subscriptions...I could go on and on. Unless your 90 year old is ill, they like the same things as a 50 year old. In fact, my mother was always in shock when she looked in a mirror. She didn't FEEL as old as she looked!

  5. 50 years ago, when I was in grade school (OK, only 45 years ago), the food pyramid had cheese AND bacon on their must have every day list.

    Nostalgic for ignorance

  6. Heart attack on a Ritz.. mmmm Good Cracker! YUM! I would totally eat this, for breakfast. It has bacon, that makes it a breakfast food, right?

    90 year old Birthday presents? Hmmmmm I vote for Spa stuff, like Soap, Lotion and things of that nature... So she can pamper herself... :)

  7. wow...that looks so yummy! Every ingredient is tasty on its own and mixing them all together is a great idea.

  8. Yummie, great dip cheddar and bacon? Cannot go wrong :-)

  9. OMG...this looks terrific! Bacon, cheddar cheese and cream cheese....what's not to like? If I host a Superbowl party this year, I'm thinking this may just have to be on the menu.

  10. Mmm, that is a whole lot of delicious!

  11. Ok that's just fricking awesome. How much to fill my bathtub with it?

  12. Looks like something my family would dive face first into! I bet it is awesome.

  13. Wow--it looks very decadent and very good too!

  14. And you are right, this is absolutely perfect for Super Bowl!

    Looks delish!

  15. Hi Danielle,
    Just popped in from Living in the Kitchen with Puppies...looks like I picked a perfect time. That dish looks fabulous!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I'm going to add your link to my personal search engine so I drop by more often. (I use that more than bookmarks:)

  16. oh its fantastic....i am gona try this.U have a great blog out here:)

  17. Oh wow, I would be all over this recipe! Yum!

  18. My mouth is watering! How rich and delicious and full of goodies!

  19. Hell, that is the PERFECT thing for someone that's 90. If I'm still around at 90, I'll be darned if I'm going to be "living healthy". I'll be smoking (I don't smoke), drinking, and eating stuff like this!
