Party Panache, Sunshine Pineapple Bacon Dip or Spread

 

 

We had a festive 4th of July weekend with fireworks and a boat parade

 

 

 

 

And we snacked on this super easy delicious dip

 

 

 

 

Pineapple, cream cheese & chives, sour cream, bacon

and 3 cheeses

 

 

 

 

It’s a flavor explosion in your mouth!

 

 

 

 

It’s also so simple to assemble on a busy summer day

 

 

 

 

Combine the drained pineapple with the whipped cream cheese and sour cream

Spread it in the bottom of a baking dish

 

 

 

 

Add a thick layer of crispy bacon pieces

and cover with cheese*

 

*I used Asiago sandwich slices, but you can use any flavor of sliced cheese or grated cheese you wish

 

 

 

I topped it with a sprinkle of grated sharp Cheddar and Parmesan

At this point you can make it ahead and refrigerate for baking later

 

 

 

 

Bake it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees

and be prepared for raves!

 

 

 

 

I served it with Club crackers and provided a spreader

 

 

 

 

Serve it with baguette slices, toast points, chips or crudities…

 

 

 

 

Sweet, tangy, creamy, cheesy delicious!

 

 

 

 

Sunshine Pineapple Bacon Dip or Spread

  • Servings: 8-10
  • Difficulty: very easy
  • Print

1 can, 20 oz. pineapple tidbits

8 slices thick applewood smoked bacon slices, cooked until crisp*

1 tub, 7.5 oz. whipped cream cheese with chives**

1/3 cup sour cream

4-6 slices Asiago cheese slices, or 6 oz. grated cheese of choice

1 oz. extra sharp Cheddar

1 oz. shaved Parmesan

 

Drain pineapple well and reserve juice for a marinade or something else.  Blend drained pineapple with whipped cream cheese with chives and sour cream. Spread into an even layer in the bottom of a greased shallow 8″ x 8″ baking dish.  Cover pineapple mixture with bacon pieces.  Cover with sliced cheese, or grated cheese of choice.  Top with grated cheddar and Parmesan.  Dish can be refrigerated at this point for baking later.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serve warm with crackers, chips, toast or crudities.

*cook bacon on a parchment lined rimmed bmaking sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.  Check and keep cooking 3-5 minutes longer, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn.  Remove from oven and drain well on paper towels.  May be done in advance and refrigerated.

**whipped cream cheese is lighter and easier to blend.  Substitute regular cream cheese and add green onions for another option
