1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
6-8 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled and cooled
2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup mayonnaise
salt, to taste
Triscuits, wheat thins, or Ritz crackers
1. Place slices of bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet, and place in oven. Then turn the oven on and preheat to 425 degrees. (Bacon will be cooking during this time, and it's part of the process.) Bake for 30-35 minutes. Once bacon is cooked to desired consistency, remove from oven and set aside.
2. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees. Give oven a few minutes to cool so you don't burn your almonds. Spread almonds onto a baking sheet in a single layer and toast for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside and let cool.
3. Shred cheddar cheese. (If you're in a pinch, and you don't have time to shred your own cheese, you can buy the shredded cheese from the grocery. But it has a coating on it, so the flavor will be a little different.) Dice onions and bacon.
4. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl, and stir until well combined. Serve with your choice of crackers at room temperature.
