EASY BEER CHEESE DIP WITH BACON
3 tablespoons bacon grease
2 tablespoons flour all-purpose
1 cup beer
1 cup cream
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons chives
Melt the bacon grease in a saucepan, and whisk in the flour over low heat.
Cook for 2-3 minutes over low heat, and pour in the beer, cream, and dijon mustard.
Increase heat to medium-low, stir frequently, and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened.
Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese, 3/4 of the bacon, and tabasco.
Pour into a hollowed-out bread round, or a serving dish. Serve with crusty bread chunks, and garnish with the remaining bacon, some extra cheese, and the chives.
