Bacon and Sundried Tomato Dip

Wow I can’t believe that summer is practically over. The end of summer always makes me feel like I never fully appreciated and made use of the gorgeous sunny days. Like, why did I not sunbathe more? Why? Who cares about cleaning, that can be put off for another day. My sister is coming to visit next week and I am SO EXCITED! I’m really hoping the good weather holds out for her. And I don’t mean the drizzle that we are experiencing today, but the return to summer weather that they are predicting for the end of the week. Pleeeease give back the good weather, mother nature. Please?

Well, even if we have crappy weather, we can still have some bacon to cheer us up. Bacon makes everything better after all (By the way, I’m sorry vegetarian readers because I know you really don’t agree.)! I once made this dip as mini cheeseballs but to be honest, this recipe makes rather sloppy cheeseballs and I just wasn’t happy with it. And that’s how this dip was born. This dip has an in your face bacon flavour that is wonderfully evened out by the sundried tomatoes. Mmm, so good.

Sometimes when I make a recipe I can’t tell if it’s truly good or not because I made it and I’m always more critical of myself than other people. This happens more often than not and happened with this recipe. My taste testers reassured me that it was really delicious though and the dip tasted great the next day too!
