    2. Place the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and Dijon mustard into a bowl, and mix on medium speed with an electric mixer until the ingredients are thoroughly blended. Stir in the onion and crumbled bacon, and spoon into a serving bowl. Refrigerate for 2 hours to blend the flavours, and sprinkle with parsley to serve.


    Garnish before serving with chopped fresh parsley, chives, coriander or spring onions.

    Great recipe reduced it for a family picnic, had to make changes as family have food allergies. So cows milk cheeses changed with feta,goat chedder and a spoon of sheep yogurt to get the right consistency  -  19 Sep 2015


    Made a trial run of this today. I used extra sharp white cheddar and served it with Frank's Hot Sauce on the side and with wheat crackers/bagel chips. All my boys liked it, BUT Hubs thinks it could use some more bacon and I thought it could use garlic. As is, it still disappeared.  -  06 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this for the super bowl. It was gone in no time flat! Only thing i did different was add a little bacon crumble on top for decoration and served with bagel chips  -  18 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
