Need a quick and flavorful appetizer? Look no further than this Apricot Gorgonzola Cheese Spread, perfect for your next get together!
Today I’m taking a survey…
I want to know how many of you find TJ Maxx completely irresistible.
As in, you can’t go in to look for a birthday gift for a friend without picking up something for yourself.
Come on, I know you’re out there.
I just wanted to know I’m not alone.
Week before last, that’s exactly what happened to me. I was picking out a gift and saw the lovely dish that you see in these pictures and could.not.resist. It begged me to take it home. And after doing so, I made an incredibly delicious dip to take to the party because then I felt like my $3.99 purchase was justified.
This dip sounds like a crazy combination, but the sweetness of the preserves and the saltiness of the bacon and gorgonzola is just right. It was a party hit and will definitely keep your guests coming back for more.
- 2 (8 oz.) blocks of CREAM CHEESE
- 5 oz. CRUMBLED GORGONZOLA CHEESE
- 3 sliced of BACON, cooked and crumbled (about 3 oz.)
- ¼ cup CHOPPED GREEN ONION
- 6-8 oz. APRICOT PRESERVES (use more to make it as sweet as you like)
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Transfer to serving dish and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Serve with crackers or sliced baguettes.

This looks fantastic! I rarely go into TJ Maxx, but I don’t need any extra reminders about how cool it is! 🙂 I might end up “having” to go there more often…

I know that’s right! I’m glad there aren’t any of those stores close by or I’d be in trouble 🙂
