Life as I know it is restored – Football is BACK! Because if there’s one thing I can say with absolute certainty, it’s that life in my house without football is rough…we simply don’t know what to do with ourselves on the weekends. No sooner does the last game of the season end, that we start looking forward to the first game of the next season to begin. It would be fair to say that we’ve been looking forward to September for about 7 months, give or take. With college and professional seasons both in full swing, we are in our heyday.
And game day isn’t game day without some delicious snacks, so naturally, in addition to watching football, I’ve been cooking up a storm. Wings, pinwheels, sliders, dips, I’m a sucker for game day food. I. Want. To. Eat. It. All. But with lots of games on each day and 3 kids running around the house, this year, I’m leaning towards my easier recipes – fewer ingredients, minimal prep, and speedy cook times. If you’re doing the same, you must check out this Ooey Gooey Bacon Cheddar Cheese Dip recipe!
It’s pretty much all in the name on this one, cheesy, bacon-y (not a word, but it should be) goodness right on a cracker or chip or by itself. It’s amazing. Did I mention that it’s ready in about 45 minutes? It’s true! And everyone will love it. Well, except your kitchen table or counter, because it will probably experience the “ooey gooey” part of this recipe just a little too up close and personal for its liking.
That’s not a reenactment, either. That’s what actually happens when I let my kids eat this dip. It’s a mess. A complete and total mess. All over my cutting board, all over my kitchen table, and sometimes even on my floor.
Fortunately, these little messes can be fixed with a little help from Viva® Vantage® Towels.
Fiber-packed to help clean your toughest messes, Viva® Vantage® Towels provide stretchy-strength to deliver great scrubbing power. They’re soft and flexible, so they’re easy to use, while staying tough when wet to resist ripping or tearing. They’re the perfect towel to have on hand when this cheese dip is being served. Viva® Vantage® Towels are my game day clean up solution and are conveniently found in my local Walmart where I buy all my game day grub ingredients.
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2 – Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl until well combined (making sure that all the cream cheese is broken up). Pour into a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until warm and bubbling around the edges.
