Warm Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip

 Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip is the ultimate appetizer! Simple to make, yet so flavourful and packed with sweet onion, smoky bacon and salty cheese. Perfect to pair with chips or veggies!


 New Year's Eve is tomorrow night and with the lockdown, we don't have any plans to go out and celebrate. We will spend a quiet night at home, playing board games with the kids, maybe do a little karaoke and enjoying yummy snacks. I kind of feel like all I've been doing since Christmas Eve is eating, especially since yesterday was my birthday!  Sometimes you just need an awesome snack on a special occasion. 

In the winter we are big fans of hot appetizers; dips in particular. Not only are they super easy to make, they are out of this world good. Everyone will go crazy over this one. Luxuriously creamy, with sweet caramelised onion, smoky bacon and salty cheese, this dip will be a hit every time you make it!

Warm Bacon and Caramelised Onion Dip

12 oz cream cheese
1/3 up sour cream
10 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
1 onion, sliced thin
1 cup grated Swiss cheese, divided
2 Tbs butter
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 C white wine
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Add butter and olive oil to a medium skillet. Turn heat to medium-low and add onion. Allow onions to cook slowly and caramelise. This takes about 20-25 minutes so be patient so the onions do not burn. 

Once the onions begin to get a nice brown colour, add in the white wine and scrape up the brown bits for the bottom of the pan. Let cook until the wine has evaporated; about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. 

In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and sour cream. Gently stir in onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Fold in 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese. 

Spread dip into a small baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until sides are hot and bubbly.Garnish with additional bacon and chopped green onion.

  1. Looks amazing. I already love the combo of caramelized onions and cheese but toss in some bacon and wine and that's a winner in my book!

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
