This "Derby Day Dip" is just perfect to serve for your Derby party! This is a layered dip, served chilled, but it has the components of the Kentucky Hot Brown...you know turkey, cheesy goodness, bacon and tomato! It is delicious and sort of addicting! You can serve with chips or spread it on crackers. If you want it to be even more like a Hot Brown, serve with toasted banquettes. Here is what you need for this yummy dip:
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. chicken bullion (the powdered type)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (use an 1/8 if you don't like the heat)
1/2 cup diced turkey breast ( I used a good deli turkey)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
3 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 tomato, seeded and diced
In a mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise until it's smooth. Add the chicken bullion and cayenne pepper and blend. Set this aside to give the bullion time to dissolve while you prepare the other ingredients.
When you have you other ingredient ready. Spread the cream cheese mixture in a 1 quart serving dish or you can spread it in a pie plate. Next, sprinkle with the diced turkey breast. Now put the shredded Parmesan cheese and then the shredded Swiss cheese. If you are preparing this the day before, I would stop here and refrigerate.
Then right before serving sprinkle with the bacon and diced tomatoes!
This is really good on crackers or with chips like Frito scoops or Ruffles!
Derby Day Dip or whatever day you want something different to snack on!
