This was a recipe I received from my friend Terri. She served this dip using one of the small crock pots (2-3 cup). It kept the cheese melted and warm through the whole party. The chips really make this recipe, but could use crackers. This is a great dip to make for parties as it keeps warm throughout, awesome for football parties, guys love this hardy dip!!!!
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup Miracle Whip (I would not substitute mayonnaise)
- 4 ounces swiss cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons green onions, sliced thinly
- 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 whole wheat pita bread
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In microwave safe bowl, soften cream cheese on medium (50%) for 30 seconds. Mix cream cheese, miracle whip, swiss cheese, green onions and bacon until well blended.
- Spoon mixture into 2 1/2 cup casserole dish or 9-inch pie plate(or use tiny crock pot). Microwave on high for 4 minutes or until heated through, if using crock pot, just pour mixture into it and turn it on.
- Take pita and cut them into 8ths, and then split each triangle by separating it from outer seam, into 2 pieces. Spread rough side with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Place on cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crisp.
This is a great dip. I really loved it. DH didn't because he found it too sweet. Probably because of the miracle whip (I made Miracle Whip from Mayonnaise). Maybe I'd try again with half needed. The good news is that I had it all for myself (I made half recipe). The pita crisps are so good. I used black sesame seeds. Thanks Diner :) Made for Potluck tag game
Diner, I have to say that we really enjoyed this dip, on a chilly Saturday afternoon. I think I've had similar, but, what's not to love with a cream cheese/bacon/swiss dip? ;-) I did reduce by half, for the 2 of us to munch. I also skipped the green onions (I was out), but I used a pinch of onion powder, and just a sprinkle of garlic powder. This was baked in the oven, alongside the pitas, for 20-25 minutes. I also added some sea salt flakes to the pita crisps. The sweet/tang from the Miracle Whip shines thru in this appy. Thanks so much for sharing!
great taste and easy to prepare. my guests enjoyed it, obviously, the dish was wiped clean. thanks!
