Bacon, Mushroom and Chive Dipping Sauce - Simply the Best Dip Recipe EVER!!!
Recipe type: Cocktail Snacks / Party Snacks
Today we're going to make the most amazing dip I have ever tasted. This bacon, mushroom and chive dip works equally well as a spread, as a filling for baked potatoes and even as a topping over steaks.
  • 400g White mushrooms (you can also use Portabellini or Porcini)
  • 200g Good quality oak or hickory smoked streaky bacon
  • 30g + 30g Butter
  • 250ml Cultured sour cream
  • 250g Cream cheese (Chive flavored)
  • (add 30ml of finely chopped fresh chives if you cannot find flavored cream cheese)
  • Crostini to serve
  1. Chop the mushrooms into thin slices and put these aside.
  2. Cut the streaky bacon across the grain into thin slices. Try to use properly smoked bacon as this adds a tremendous depth to the flavor of the dip.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium high heat and add the bacon.
  4. Stirfry the bacon for 5 to 6 minutes until it starts to caramelize on the edges.
  5. Add the mushrooms along with 30g of butter. Continue to stirfry this for 2 minutes.
  6. Add a further 30g of butter. Continue to stirfry the mixture until deep golden and caramelized. This will take 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Transfer the bacon mushroom mixture to a tall jug.
  8. Add the sour cream and chive flavored cream cheese to the jug. If you cannot find flavored cream cheese, simply add 30ml of finely chopped fresh chives to the mixture.
  9. Use your stick blender to zap this all until fine.
  10. To serve, slice a few French rolls into slices and toast them lightly under the grill in your oven until lightly golden.
  11. Arrange the slices around a platter accompanied with the best dip ever.
