Bacon Tomato Tartlets and Onion Dip

wine and cheese party table

April 15, 2015, posted by Gina – Recently, I participated in a membership drive for the Ronald McDonald House Red Shoe Society. The event was a Wine & Cheese party but, far from a simple cheese board with fruit and crackers on the side, the table was packed with delicious dishes. I made bacon tomato tartlets and onion dip and I’d like to share these simple recipes with you.

Bacon Tomato Tartlets

1 – 10 oz can Rotel, drained
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 – 3 oz package real bacon bits
3 – 1.9 oz packages mini phyllo shells

Preheat oven to 350°
Combine the Rotel, cheese, mayo and bacon bits. Fill the phyllo shells with the mixture and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes.


The onion dip is quasi-homemade in that you have to blend two ingredients together. That being said, it’s not entirely whipped up from scratch but neither is it straight from a jar. I ran across a really cute article in Bon Appétit magazine that had four people blind taste test Alton Brown’s French Onion Dip and Lay’s French Onion Dip from a jar. The panel consisted of a Health Nut, a Foodie, a Dude and a Kid. Read the article and see the results HERE.
