Here is a crowd pleasing hot dip perfect for game day!

We happily plowed through this dip last weekend while watching the Alabama-Ole Miss game


Big game at our house, HH and HHjr went to Ala and DD went to Ole Miss…


We had fans rooting for both teams!


The Man Cave is a serious place on game day, the glass tile back splash is even red & white

Just like this Pigskin Tailgate Dip!


Bacon, ham, sour cream, cream cheese, Asiago cheese, onion, and a little Worcestershire and Dijon… need I say more?


Fry the bacon


Saute the ham and onions


Mix the sour cream and cream cheese


Season with mustard, Worcestershire and pepper and a little salt [not much because of the salty bacon, ham and cheese]


Mix in the bacon, ham and onions and 3/4 of the cheese




Put into a greased 1 quart baking dish and top with remaining cheese


Now you can bake it at 350 or stash it in the fridge for up to 24 hours and bake it whenever you’re ready

This makes even a loss to Ole Miss bearable!

Try to find a block of Asiago cheese and grate it yourself, the flavor pairs beautifully with the ham and bacon~
