I think I may have had a craving. I don't like to blame things on pregnancy a lot, but yesterday morning I woke up and realized I had been dreaming about a hot mushroom dip I made one time. Throughout the day I thought of it and by the kids bedtime I was chomping at the bit to make it. Besides, Jaker is not a mushroom fan AT. ALL. What better time to make it? We loaded up, I got what I needed and while the kids watch part of a movie I threw it together. I got them in bed and came down to warm, creamy fungi heaven.
Here's the recipe:
(If you are looking for low fat, pass on by... nothing to see here.)
Hot Mushroom Dip/Spread
4 slices of bacon, diced (I've gone to using the Real Bacon Pieces in a pouch- Quick and not so messy!)
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
1 med. onion, chopped finely
1 clove garlic
2 T. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
Cook bacon until crisp, drain all but 2 T. of drippings to saute mushrooms, onion and garlic in until tender. (Or, just saute in a little olive oil and dump in the easy bacon pieces at the end)
Add flour, salt and pepper, cook and stir for a minute until thickened.
Reduce heat, Add cream cheese, sour cream, and both sauces. Cook on Med low until cheese is melted.
Stir in bacon and serve warm with *Wheat Thins* or veggies.
And you've gotta love this packaging, right TA? My favorite words... combined with mushrooms! Heavenly!
