Chicken And Bacon Spread
Thinking of the Super Bowl next weekend, I was strumming through some of my older books for any kind of appetizers, dips or snack food for the big game and came across this recipe from a 1958 pamphlet put out by Good Housekeeping and it sounded interesting, a little different and quit simple. Another plus, was the fact that it can be made ahead of time for those of you who are having big parties; there’s nothing better than having your time free from the kitchen for all those guests! I love my old cookbooks and pamphlets and have quite a collection, one dating back to 1906 called the Enterprising Housekeeper with illustrations of handy kitchen gadgets for the then, modern kitchen, WOW! I have my chili all ready for next weekend, I mean, what’s a Super Bowl without chili anyway? Oops, I forgot the brewski, another must have! But during the day, we’ll probably just munch on snacky type stuff and this recipe caught my eye, it’s got BACON!
- 1 cup minced, cooked chicken
- 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- ¼ teas salt
- Dash of pepper
- ¼ cup mayo
- 2 tbsp finely chopped apple
- Just combine the chicken, bacon, salt, pepper and mayo.
- Refrigerate until serving time.
- When ready to serve, add the apple and mix.
This recipe only makes a little over a cup, so if you have a large crowd coming, you might want to double or triple it. Serve with cocktail breads or crackers, or if you’re like me, I was thinking on the lines of using it for stuffing celery and maybe adding a little hot sauce too! Hope you enjoy…………….
