Bacon & Carmelied Onion Parmesan Dip

So, in case you hadn't noticed...we took a little break from blogging.  Life sure got crazy there for a little bit and I had to make some decisions of what I could give up so I could devote more time to my kiddo's and husband.  For a while I thought maybe one of the things I needed to get rid of was my blog.  I was pretty torn up about it...I love this baby!  But I'm happy to say, WE'RE BACK! (mostly me...Kyla is still pretty busy with school and activities, but we'll try to have her make a few appearances here and there.)  I just couldn't give it up...this is my little guilty pleasure!  
So with that, I just want to tell you how happy I am that you are here and sharing this little part of my life with me.  I love cooking, baking and all things food, and I love being able to converse with each of you through this blog...so please comment!:)
And I couldn't have picked a bette recipe to share on our first post since our hiatus!!  I can't tell you how much love I have for this dip.  Everything I love wrapped in a delicious dip.  A perfect football appetizer too!

And by the way, it's my co-autor's 14th birthday today!  Can't believe how much she's growing up!  Sure do love her!
Bacon & Carmelized Onion Parmesan Dip

5 slices of bacon
1/2 of small onion, diced
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

Fry bacon in frying pan until crisp.  Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to cool.  Add onion to bacon grease and saute until onions are carmelized (turn a nice golden brown color), about 5 minutes.  Make sure to scrap the bottom of your pan while onions are cooking to get the yummy bacon goodness mixed in there!  Remove onions to a medium sized mixing bowl using a slotted spoon to drain most of the bacon grease.

Add the cream cheese, bacon broke into pieces, garlic powder, pepper and Parmesan cheese to the mixing bowl with the onions.  Mix until well combined. 

Place into 2 one cup sized ramekin dishes (or any small oven safe bowls).  Bake at 350 degress for 15 minutes.

Serve with crackers...my favorite are Ritz or Wheat Thins.

You discard the bacon grease? It is not added to the cheese mixture?
