I got a new toy! My mother-in-law surprised me with a brand new teeny tiny Little Dipper Crock Pot for Mother's Day. This little guy is small. The stoneware is attached to the heating element and the capacity is only 1 1/2 cups.
He is so very cute. Here he is next to my coffee cup for a size comparison (yes, the girls and I have decided that the Little Dipper is a boy. The other's are girls, yet this is a boy. We can't explain our reasoning).
We had some leftover bacon from breakfast (beef, not pork) and made a very lovely bacon and cheese dip in him. At 9:15am. Because nothing says Happy Mother's Day better than bacon and cheese dip.
These are the proportions for this crock---if you are going to use a larger one, adjust accordingly.
--1/3 cup milk
--5 pieces of cooked bacon
--2 slices of American Cheese
--2 slices of cheddar
--1 t worcestershire sauce
Add the milk to the crock, and crumble the cheese and bacon on top.
Cover and cook for 1 hour.
This new crock doesn't have a heating control--you just plug it in and it's on. I would do 1 hr on high and 2 hours on low, probably.
I really liked the flavor of this dip. We had it with tortilla chips, but I imagine celery, carrots, or bread cubes would work nicely. It had a smokey flavor and wasn't overly greasy.
