Baking Success Or Baking Mess


8 ounces bacon, 6 to 8 strips
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons Beehive® OR Crown® Golden Syrup
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 cup sour cream
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1/4 cup diced green onions


Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to paper towel lined plate to cool; crumble. Remove all but 2 tablespoons bacon grease from skillet.

Add butter to skillet with bacon grease. Stir in sweet and red onions and cook over medium heat until soft (about 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Stir in 1 tablespoon corn syrup. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes until onions are caramelized.

Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon corn syrup, vinegar and crumbled bacon. Mix well and remove from heat. Add sour cream and cream cheese, stirring to blend. Stir in 1-1/2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese; mix well. Pour into greased 1-quart baking dish. Top with remaining cheese.

Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly around the edges.

Sprinkle with green onions. Delicious with kettle chips, snack crackers or fresh vegetables.

Recipe note: While dark corn syrup is preferred, light corn syrup may be substituted if desired.
