White Bean Dip with Bacon

I love garlic flavored dips. This one is no exception. I made this recently for the girl’s night that I host here at the house. I’m pretty sure the girls liked it because there wasn’t much leftover. That’s how I know something is good!

I think we would have indulged even more if we didn’t have to go home on to our hubbies on Friday night with garlic breath. Not the best greeting for him after a long week at work, huh?

White Bean Dip with Bacon

But this dip is so worth the garlic breath. Or you can leave out the garlic all together. You’ll enjoy it either way.

This recipe uses avocado oil which is something new to my kitchen in the last few months. Where did I find it? Costco. You know I’m in love with that place,right?

I love the flavor in the avocado oil. It’s more subtle than olive oil and it’s really healthy for you too. Don’t get me wrong I love using extra virgin olive oil. But it does have a very distinct that can take over in a dressing or dip.

So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce you to avocado oil in my recipes. I’m delighted with the results. If you don’t have avocado oil, olive oil will work just fine.

White Bean Dip with Bacon

Have I ever mentioned how much I like appetizers? Anyone want to have an appetizer dinner with me? We all just come and share and eat dips, bites and smidgens for hours upon end.I think it sounds fabulous.

I also think I’m gonna try to serve this up for dinner some night and see what kind of reaction I’ll get. I don’t know about the rest of the family but I would be perfectly fine with this and some pita chips. P.S. That’s homemade pita bread in the background. Yum! (Recipe coming soon.)

White Bean Dip with Bacon

The funny thing is 10 years ago I turned my nose up even at the sound of the word bean. Now I find myself using them in Mexican dishes, soups, dips, you name it. It just goes to show that if you keep trying something eventually you might like it.

I really hope that’s not true with seaweed because I have no desire to like that stuff! Have you ever tried it? It’s absolutely terrible.

But on a more positive note….Have a splendid week!

Til we meet and eat again,

Melanie

  2. I’m a sucker for garlic also, and you’re a better wife than I, because I don’t even think about the hubs when I’m eating onions or garlic. :) I’m intruiged by this avocado oil… Must try. And MUST try this dip!

  3. I love appetizers too! I love going out for happy hour, and getting 3 different cheap appetizers and calling it dinner. I’ve never tried avocado oil! Now I must.

  4. Too funny, Melanie. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice garlic breath for delicious food, right? This dip looks delicious! I can see why you guys would eat it all gone :D

  5. Yes, sign me up for the dip & appetizer dinner! Especially if you’re planning on making some of this delish dip! Bacon & avocado oil? Sounds so yummy!

  6. This dip totally looks worth having the garlic breathe! YUM! Would love to just sit down with a bowl of this, some pita bread, and go to town! Pinned Melanie, great recipe.

  7. It must be bean week! ;) I love white bean dip, but I have never tried it with avocado oil. That’s on my grocery list now!

    Sometimes I’ll plan a dinner of just appetizers. It’s so fun. My husband and boys like them, so why not? Mini foods and dips are the best.
