mmmm… bacon… 

here’s another recipe in ode to bacon. this gluten-free, creamy dip is surprisingly easy to prepare and makes for a great appetizer for your next dinner party, gameday or — you guessed it — baconpalooza!

the bacon:
– heat up 1-2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil in large saucepan on medium heat
– add 5-6 strips of country-style bacon to pan
– fry bacon in pan for a few min until slightly crispy on both sides
– remove from heat & set aside bacon on plate to cool
– pat bacon w/ papertowels to remove excess fat & oil
– reserve bacon fat in pan to add to dip mixture

the dip:
in a small mixing bowl, mix & fold together the following ingredients together until well-combined:
– 1/4 cup low-fat, plain greek yogurt
– 100g chevre frais
– crispy-fried bacon (rough chop into bacon bits)
– 5-6 small dried figs (rough chop into small pieces)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– drizzle bacon fat leftover from pan

food styling:
– serve immediately, best served warm
– pairs well w/ gluten-free chips or your fave crackers
– store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge
