Stuffed Monster Heads
Hot Bacon Cheddar Spread
This is another one of my "staple" appetizer recipes. With the addition of a little bit of orange food coloring it became a great orange dish for a Halloween buffet. This is a very savory spread that is easy to make and sure to please everyone. It is especially popular with children. You can substitute chopped pepperoni for the bacon if desired.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon crushed thyme
salt and pepper
orange food coloring
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sliced scallions
8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup crushed ritz crackers
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, spices, and food coloring until well mixed. Add the cheddar cheese and scallions. Place in a shallow baking dish and sprinkle with bacon and crackers. Bake for 15 minutes.
