Happy Monday, Friends!!!
Erika and I missed last week's link-up in the hustle and bustle of a busy Halloween... but today we're linking up and talking recipes!
Today I'm sharing "Captain Rodney's Dip". A sweet friend Caitlin brought this to a girls night YEARS ago and over the years we all beg her to bring it to any and all events. The "secret ingredient" is a pepper glaze that she buys in Mississippi called Captain Rodney's. She gave me a bottle as a hostess gift and I broke it out to make my own dip last night for Mason's end-of-season soccer party.
Y'all. This dip looks weird. The ingredients sound super strange and it contains about a billion calories... but it is SOOOOO good!!! Trust me!!! Make this for a Christmas Eve gathering with family, set it out as a Thanksgiving appetizer or bring it in for your co-workers as a surprise. I promise you everyone is going to flip out and ask you for the recipe.
Here's What You'll Need...
- Ritz Crackers
- 1 cup shredded cheddar
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 block cream cheese
- 8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
- 2 chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup (about 1/2 the bottle) of Captain Rodney's Glaze
So Caitlin says she picks this up in a store on their drive between Dallas and Mississippi. I haven't had any luck finding it in any local stores around here, but you can find it on amazon HERE.
Step 1 - Mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, mayo and 2 green onions together.
Step 2 - Spread the mixture into a pie plate and top with crushed Ritz crackers (not too thick... but enough to cover the top).
Step 3 - Bake it at 350 for about 15 minutes or until the edges start to bubble. Pull it out, top it with bacon (don't use my pic as a guide... I had a bunch of chopped, cooked bacon and I used too much) and drizzle the 1/2 cup of glaze on top. Pop it back into the oven for about 10 more minutes and serve warm with additional ritz crackers.
This is what was left after the soccer party and I'm pretty sure that's only because we ran out of crackers :) And yes... we stopped on the way home to get more crackers so dave and I could snack while we watched football ;)
Y'all. Trust me and make this. Have I steered you wrong in the past? That's what I thought ;)
And as the recipient of a bottle of the glaze, I can tell you what a great hostess gift it would make as well. Bring the dip to girls night and a bottle of the glaze as your thank you. Easy!
If you're looking for any of the recipes I've shared over the years you can find them HERE. There's a picture on my sidebar that you can click on as well. I think I have them all there and I've tried to keep it updated. If it's on my list then it's a recipe that I've made, shared and LOVE!!!
So, link up below and tell us what you've been eating lately and don't forget that tomorrow is Show and Tell Tuesday and we'll be talking about what we'd do if we won the lottery!
