Creamy California Dates and Bacon Dip

Creamy California Dates and Bacon Dip

As an ambassador for California dates I am always trying to figure out new fun ways of creating recipes using this wonderful fruit. I used to always stuff dates with goats cheese and wrap in bacon, I just love it so much. It’s a classic combination of flavors, and it got me thinking.  Why not turn it into a dip? This is so delicious it’s like a cheese board turned into a dip!!!

This dip is best served warm, straight from the oven. I love to change up the garnishes I use depending on if I want a more savory, or a more sweet dip. I love the kick of heat that comes with the dried chili flakes, too. If you prefer a sweeter dip, skip the chili flakes and use honey and pistachios instead.

One thing to note, if you don’t have a cast iron skillet, this dip can also be made and served in a slow cooker. Just be sure to add extra time to the allotted cooking time in the recipe.

My favorite way to serve this warm, creamy, bacon and dates dip is with crispy crackers or crostini. You need to make sure that your crackers are strong enough to hold up to this thick, cheesy dip. If you can’t find a good, strong cracker, stick with crostini for dipping.

Oscars are this Sunday. Do you hold Oscars watch parties? If you do, this creamy date and bacon dip is not only chic but absolutely fabulous and delicious! It will be the perfect accompaniment to your other party food and drinks.
