Recipe by Lindy Lessard
"This is a wonderful bacon and onion cheese spread (not dip) that is great for parties and year-round use. For Christmas, I shape this into a tree shape, on a flat tray. I sprinkle the trunk of the tree with crisp bacon and the tree itself with finely chopped green onion tops or chives. I have also shaped it into a cross for my children's confirmation parties, a Christmas stocking, and even a heart for a special Valentine's Day party. If you substitute creamy salad dressing for the mayonnaise it will not be the same. My mom tried that and it didn't turn out well. This is best made the day before and chilled. My family and friends all love this; it's one of those dishes that I have to make for every holiday and get-together."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I make this during the holidays, too! What I do differently is I use a whole pound of bacon, use "light" cream cheese and I add a couple good shakes of Frank's Hot Sauce. It's pretty much good with any cheese you want to use, you don't have to just stick with parmesan. If you want this a little easier to spread, you can also use whipped cream cheese and fold the other ingredients into the cream cheese. This is a good base for pinwheels, too. Just spread it on your tortillas and add your fillings, roll up, and cut into "wheels". HUGE hit with everyone because, come on, who DOSEN'T like bacon?
Make this as a filling all the time with Mushrooms,you can use the stems if you like also. bake in oven for 15 min @ 350.
made this and brought to work, everyone loved it, was gone in an hour. i hate to mess with someone's recipe, but i did double the bacon. also i froze half of it and just today took out fridge and still tastes great. thanks!
This recipe disappeared off my table at a recent fundraiser for our local Children's Hospital. I had 4 other dips but this was the one gone in no time! Only thing I did different was double the amount of bacon - everything is better with more bacon you know!
Very good and very easy.
Guests really enjoyed, really good served warm.
This was great. I did add more bacon - can never have enough! I seasoned with salt-free garlic herb.
It is a wonderful base recipe to put various things in it. I added more bacon as we know 1/2 lb. is never enough so I did a little more than one pound because I wanted more inside and outside. Added at least six drops of Sriracha Sauce or to taste for a little kick. Also when you put the cheese spread in the frig scoop it onto saran wrap it makes it easer to mold into a ball without a mess. I did add some garlic powder as well.
