Blue Cheese Bacon Dip | Life, Love, and Good FoodI don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s a lot of hype building this week around one of the biggest college rivalry match ups of the season, Tennessee vs. Florida. In anticipation of the big game, there’s an entire week of Gator Hator events hosted around Knoxville–all in good fun, of course–in an effort to raise $17,000 to benefit the Love Kitchen. Come Saturday, this Volunteer family will be watching the big game while we munch on football food, including this seriously good Blue Cheese Bacon Dip.
Blue Cheese Bacon Dip | Life, Love, and Good FoodNo kidding, this stuff is delicious! Anything with bacon has got to be good, right?! We’ve found that Honey Crisp apple slices are the perfect compliment to this blue cheese, bacon, and garlic-infused dip. Dip the apple slices in lemon juice and they will keep fresh for the entire game. What else is on your football party menu? Go, VOLS!
