Warm Blue Cheese Bacon Dip

Yes, I have been on a blue cheese kick.

I had some leftover bacon (I know) the other day and decided to make some of this dip.  I haven't had it in awhile and it was so GOOD.   It is so easy to make and such a great mixture of flavors.  It's perfect for entertaining too, as it can be made ahead.  I made this for my parents 30th anniversary party we threw for them several (!) years ago and it was a hit! 

Warm Blue Cheese Bacon Dip

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup cream (you can use whole milk, half and half, whatever you have on hand)
2 cloves garlic, minced
7-8 strips cooked bacon, chopped
1 Tbsp green onions (green parts only, minced--not just sliced)
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

2 Tbsp chopped, smoked almonds (mine weren't smoked, just dry roasted)

Beat cream cheese to soften and mix in cream/milk.  Add in garlic, bacon, green onions, and blue cheese.  Mix evenly to combine and place in oven proof dish.  If making ahead, refrigerate.  Pull out of refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking.  Heat in 350 degree oven until heated through, about 30 minutes.  Top with almonds and serve warm, but not piping hot.  Serve with celery sticks or crackers.
