Carmelized Onion Bacon Dip I usually have this with Club crackers or some heavy duty tortilla chips. It’s great to have on the table as an appetizer.
Deviled Eggs There are so many different ways to make these. This is one of my favorites. I always include them in cookouts and on picnics. Of course, they’re always on the table for our holiday dinners.
Hot Bacon Spinach Dip
I’m not one for spinach in anything, but this does sound good. I’m sure it would be great with some cracker or toast rounds. I came across this recipe in the big recipe box. It was in a flyer from Kroger.
- 1 box (9 oz.) frozen chopped spinach
- 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 envelope dry onion soup & dip mix
- 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped cooked bacon
- Heat oven to 350°F. Cook spinach according to package directions; drain well and pat dry.
- In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream and onion soup mix. Add spinach and 1½ cups of the cheese; mix well. Spread mixture in 9” glass pie plate.
- Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes until heated through. Top with remaining ½ cup cheese and bacon. Bake 2-3 minutes more until cheese is melted. Serve with crackers.
- Refrigerate leftovers.

Fried Mashed Potato Balls
This is great to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. I love these, so will cook up potatoes instead of waiting for leftovers.
- 3 c. leftover mashed potatoes
- 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp. thinly sliced chives
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 egg, beaten
- 1 1/3 c. panko bread crumbs
- In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes with cooked bacon, cheddar, chives, and garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Place eggs and panko in separate shallow bowls. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop 1” to 2” balls of mashed potato mixture. Roll into a ball in your hands, then dredge first in egg and then in panko. Repeat until all mashed potatoes are used.
- Heat 3” of oil in a large cast iron skillet until candy thermometer reads 375°. Fry potato balls in batches until golden on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and season immediately with more salt.
