Three Cheese Hot Bacon & Truffle Dip

This baked bacon and cheese dip combines cream cheese, gruyere, Parmesan and a hint of truffle and makes the perfect romantic centerpiece for an intimate charcuterie board.


125 g cream cheese, softened

¼ cup sour cream

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 clove garlic, pressed or grated

¼ tsp powdered truffle zest

Pinch pepper

1 cup shredded extra-old white Cheddar cheese

6 slices Schneiders Hickory Smoked Classic Cut Bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

2 tbsp chopped fresh chives

In bowl, beat together cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, truffle zest and pepper until fluffy. Fold in remaining ingredients until blended. Scrape into lightly greased 2-cup shallow baking dish.

Bake in 375°F oven until hot, bubbly and light golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with extra chives, if desired.

Serve with crackers, baguette and vegetable dippers. Pair with a charcuterie board including Schneiders Hot Capocollo, Schneiders Genoa Salami, Schneiders European Pepperettes, and German Salami.

Tips: This dip is excellent used as a bagel spread the following day.

Truffle zest is available in specialty gourmet stores and online. If you can’t find it, use ½ tsp truffle oil instead.
