Servings: 10 servings
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 6 oz. Blue cheese crumbles
- 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/4 cup chopped chives, divided
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans, divided
- 1 baguette
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Step 2In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt half of the butter. Swirl the melted butter in the pan to coat the edges. Add the garlic and cook until lightly golden. Remove from heat.
Step 3Pour garlic and melted butter into the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the softened cream cheese and beat on low setting until smooth. Slowly add heavy cream, beating until combined. Add blue cheese crumbles, bacon, 2 tablespoons chopped chives and 2 tablespoons chopped pecans. Spread mixture in the bottom of the buttered cast iron pan.
Step 4Place the dip in the hot oven, and bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Top with remaining chives and pecans. Serve the dip while still warm with baguette slices (see below), or cool to serve with fresh veggies.
Step 5Cut baguette into rounds and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Liberally spread each baguette round with remaining butter and toast until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool and enjoy with blue cheese dip.
