    This dip is awesome. Cream cheese is blended with cooked bacon, leeks and seasonings. Serve with crackers, crostini, chips or as a sandwich spread. This dip tastes best when allowed to sit for 24 hours.

    I used turkey bacon and reduced fat cream cheese. I think this makes a better spread than it does a dip, for us anyway. Next time, I think I'll try this with half reduced sour cream and then try it as a dip. NOTE: The longer it sits, the better it gets.  -  02 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    My husband LOVED this. I made a couple changes. First, it was way too much for a first taste, so I did a 6th of the recipe, which was a very manageable amount - made about 1 cup or a little more. I also added some sour cream (maybe 1/2 cup?) to make it a little less thick. I did the bacon, but I don't think it changed the flavor all that much. I'd probably leave it out next time, just to save time and money.  -  18 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This dip was way too strong tasting, even for me. Not having had leeks before, I understand that this is unfair but be careful....  -  29 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
