I get asked for this recipe all the time, so in the interest of making my life easier, I figured I would post it here. This is a great appetizer that is super simple to make. It is perfect for entertaining at home or to carry along to holiday parties, etc. You can make everything ahead of time and then heat it up just before your guests arrive, or if you have a long trip to your destination you can keep it in a cooler and heat it up after you arrive. We also use this one for tailgating at football games, just prep it in an aluminum dish and heat it up on the grill.
CAPTAIN RODNEY’S CHEESE BAKE
1/2 cup mayonnaise
One 8 oz pack cream cheese
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 green onions (chopped)
6 Ritz crackers (crushed)
8 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1/2 cup of any Captain Rodney’s Glaze
Mix mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheddar and onions in greased pie pan. Top with crackers and bake at 350° degrees for 15 minutes. Top with bacon and any Captain Rodney’s Glaze.Â Serve with crackers, I prefer Ritz.
Most folks use Captain Rodney’s Sweet & Spicy Glaze on this, but I am fond of the Sweet Garlic Grilling Glaze or the Lime Ginger glaze, it doesn’t matter though it is good with any of them.
