Bean, Bacon and Blue Cheese Dip

Our local grocery store has the best samples EVER! Every weekend there is a different theme…everything from beer one weekend to cereal bars the next. I am not sure what the theme was the weekend this awesome little dip showed up on the sample counter, but I knew when I tasted it that I had to get the recipe and share it with all of you.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 T chopped fresh parsley
1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
15 oz can navy beans, drained
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
3 bacon slices, cooked, drained and crumbled, divided
Crackers, baguette slices or warm pita bread

Instructions:
Place onion, parley, thyme, salt, pepper, navy beans and garlic in a food processor fitted with a blade or a blender and process until smooth.

In a small bowl, combine beans, onion mixture, blue cheese and half of bacon. Mix well.

Top with remaining bacon and serve with crackers, baguette slices or warm pita bread.

What did the family think? They didn’t have any of the samples at the grocery store nor have they eaten the one that I made. I don’t have a lot of blue cheese fans in this house. They have no idea what they’re missing.
