  • Beer Dip

    This was a chip dip my Mother would make when I was growing up. If you like the taste of beer then you will like this one.

    1 package Philidelphia Cream Cheese
    4 to 6 slices of bacon cooked to a crisp and crumbled
    beer of your choice

    Mix the bacon bits and cream cheese together and start pouring in beer until it reaches a smooth creamy dip consistancy. Refrigerate awhile and serve as a chip dip. This will probably only take around 1/2 to 3/4 cups of the beer. You want it to be soft enough so you don't break your chip in half when dipping.

      Guess you'll just have to use Near Beer Ed.

        Need your opinion



        To verify beer purity and quality should the would-be chef periodically taste what would normally be "leftover beer" as it's being added to the cream cheese, or wait until the dip is of the proper consistency and then slosh down the remainder?

        Curious (sick?) minds want to know. What do you recommend?

          In that case, maybe you should start off with a 6 pack.

            wow this sounds easy enough... any reason I couldn't use a dark beer ?


            • #7
              Not that I know of. Especially if that's the kind of beer taste you enjoy. I usually recommend using your favorite beer.

                  Just don't use Bacon bits. Use real criply fried bacon. It's alot better tasting.

                            Glad you liked it Ron. I guess you will just have to drink the rest. It's a tough job but someone has to do it.

                              Just when I thought life couldn't get any better pam suggested putting in some horse radish sauce... as her favorite was bacon and horse radish... for those who like it ... about a heaping tablespoon gives it some bite without losing the beer taste.

                                Moving a year ago had the unintended consequence of losing all my cooking gear (long story). Now, finally a year later I've gotten around to rebuying all the pots, pans, gadgets, etc., and getting back into the kitchen (for the curious, I've been microwaving and eating out a lot). The loss wasn't entirely...

                                This is a recipe I was introduced to by a neighbor when I was pregnant. I had just eaten supper but as a kind gesture for his labor, I aggreed to a small bowl as a taste test.
                                Well, 5 bowls later and bursting at the seams, I decided to take home the recipe. Which I did and made some the next...

                                Is a potato pasta which is easier to make than to buy.

                                Everyone has a cookbook -- why shouldn't we? (This coming from a guy who knows how to burn water) . My wife is a good cook, but she doesn't use recipes most of the time. So I won't be able to give recipes except for the ones I find in her cookbooks after I wipe the dust off of them. If you have...
