Bacon and Tomato Dip

           
 As my boys say, "Everything is better with bacon!" 
This cream cheese dip is no exception.
You might want to add it to your New Year's Eve appetizer table.

  • 1  8 oz. / 250 g package cream cheese (brick style), at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons / 30 ml  mayonnaise (if desired)
  • 2 teaspoons / 10 ml  prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon / 2 ml celery salt
  • 1/2 cup / 125 ml  pre-fried bacon, crumbled
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  1. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy and smooth.  (For a softer dip, add the mayonnaise and mix thoroughly.)
  2. Mix in mustard and celery salt.
  3. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix in bacon, tomato and green pepper.
  4. Pile into a serving dish and serve with crackers or baguette slices.

Note: The mixture can also be formed into a ball or log (do not add the mayonnaise).  
           Roll  log in shredded cheddar cheese, wrap and refrigerate until firm.  Unwrap and serve.
