We’ve got home brewers in my family! Both my husband and brother in law practice alchemicallleerrrrr wait… no brewing in their spare time, trying their hand at creating new and interesting beverages that they share with their friends and fellow hobbyists alike. It’s kind of cool really to see them talk, trade ideas, and spend time in the kitchen. That being said… both of them also really enjoy craft beer (even if my husband kinda gives me the stink eye when I call him a beer snob (which he so is!).
That said…. you have to eat something to go with the beer, and what’s better than things that taste like… and are made with… well you know… beer? Hehehe. I probably should start posting and trying more recipes made with the stuff. So here’s one I recently gave a try. I found it pretty great on some soft crusty Vienna bread, yummy!!!! (P.S. Did I mention it was EASY?!)
2 Cups of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 bricks of Cream Cheese
1 4.3 Package of Real Bacon Bits or 4.3 ounces of real bacon you cooked and crumbled yourself (just make extra at breakfast)
1 small packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 tsp Onion Powder
3/4 Cup of Beer of your choice
Assorted Dipping things like Crackers, Bread (yummmmmyyyy), veggies, pretzel thins, or pita chips
1. Dump EVERYTHING but the dipping things into a food processor and go to town until everything is well and combined. If you don’t have a food processor, dump everything into a work bowl and use a hand mixer to mix it til everything is very well combined.
2. Put dip in the fridge for a couple of hours to set up. (….I probably should have waited till I did that step before taking pictures, as it had a better consistency and look after I did, but I may not be the most patient person ever when it comes to things?)
3. Put into serving dish, or bread bowl, surrounded by dippers and let the party begin!
