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!
