Crock-Pot Pulled Pork Cheesy Bacon Dip
It was a buy 2 packages of hamburger buns get a container of Lloyd’s pulled pork for free special at the grocery store that lead to this recipe.
I was running in for hamburger buns for dinner and the store just wanted to give me something for free, just for buying something I was already planning on purchasing.
Sure why not.
I like free stuff.
The problem is, when I am going to plan pulled pork for dinner, I like to make it myself at home (in the slow cooker of course!) because it just tastes 1000 times better than anything you can get premade at the store.
So the question was…what was I going to do with this container of pulled pork?
I shuffled around in the refrigerator and spotted some cheese (cheddar), some cream cheese and some green onion. OK a dip was coming to mind here. Then, I opened the freezer and spied a bag of bacon that was already cooked and chopped. Because being the frugal person that I am, I watch for sales on things like bacon and buy up a couple extra packages, cook it up, and freeze for when I need some bacon goodness in a dish.
And so this recipe was born.
And we had guests of a couple young men in their early 20’s over for the afternoon. Just in time to sample my newest dip creation.
And it was a good thing!
It was gone!
I hope you enjoy it as much as our family and guests did.
