Bacon Horseradish Dip-an Alton Brown Recipe

If you're a fan of the dip that comes in the little plastic tubs at the supermarket, this homemade Bacon Horseradish Dip will make you whimper! Ok, maybe that was just me, but I do think you'll like it folks. Salty, zingy, smokey and a little sour, there's a lot to love here... Alton says to let it hang out in the fridge over night so the flavors can mingle... I say good luck with that:@)
 And in this reporter's opinion, the fresher and sharper the horseradish, the better!
Oh and, if you're going to take pictures of it, it's probably a good idea to save some bacon to sprinkle on top:@)

Bacon Horseradish Dip-an Alton Brown recipe from Men's Journal
6 slices of bacon
1/2  diced onion
1 1/2 C sour cream-I used light
3/4 C mayonnaise
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp white pepper-I used freshly ground black pepper
3/4 tsp kosher salt
2 Tblsp horseradish
  1. Fry bacon until crisp, drain on paper towel, crumble and reserve bacon fat.
  2. Fry onion in bacon fat until it begins to wilt. I scooped the onions onto a plate to cool.
  3. Mix everything well and allow to chill overnight (ha!).
Try something new for the playoffs and have a happy day:@)

  8. Yum, sounds good Lynn. :-D I know my hubs would love this because he loves all these ingredients, including horseradish. I like the other ingredients, but I'm not wild about horseradish. I could halve the horseradish amount, and that would probably be perfect for me. :)

    Are you having fun watching the football games? We're watching the Panthers and Seahawks right now. Since we live in North Carolina, we'd love to see the Panthers win, but it's a long shot for sure. I am NOT a Seahawks fan. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe and have a great weekend!
