2 1/2 Cups approx.
Cook bacon on a sheet tray in the oven at 400 degrees about 25 - 30 minutes. The thick cut bacon does take longer to bacon to get crispy. Drain bacon, set aside to cool prior to chopping.
Place yogurt, cream cheese, cayenne, sucanat, buttermilk, worchestershire sauce in mixing bowl. Cream until smooth and creamy.
Stir in crumbled bacon and Smokehaus bleu cheese. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving with fresh vegetable slices or chips.
Using Greek yogurt in this recipe, instead of sour cream, adds roughly 11 grams of protein.
Sucanat is a dried cane sugar high in potassium, calcium, magnesium and Vitamin A. I prefer to use sucanat not only because of nutrient content, but love the earthy molasses flavor over traditional commercial brown sugar.
Using a cream cheese blended with Greek yogurt adds yet another healthy component of added protein.
For a luscious salad dressing, thin the mixture with additional buttermilk to desired consistency.
