Ingredients

 ½ lb bacon slices
 1 tbsp butter
 ½ yellow onion, diced
 2 tbsp Pod & Bean® Honey Sesame Sauce
 8 oz cream cheese, softened
 12 oz dark brown ale
 6 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
 soft pretzels for dipping

Directions

1

Heat oven to 350° F.

2

Add bacon to a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté for ten minutes until just crispy and then remove and place on a sheet tray lined with foil. Allow bacon to cool and then rough chop.

3

In a large saucepan on medium heat, melt butter and then add the onions and cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes.

4

Whisk in the Pod & Bean® Honey Sesame Sauce and the ale, scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan.

5

Increase the heat and bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

6

Add the cream cheese and reduce the heat to medium. Whisk the cream cheese into the ale mixture until the cheese melts and becomes creamy. Turn off the heat.

7

Slowly add five cups cheddar cheese to the ale mixture, stirring until the cheese melts and is smooth.

8

Stir in ¾ of the bacon and save the rest to sprinkle on top.

9

Spray a 1 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Pour the dip into the dish and top with the remaining cheddar cheese and the rest of the crumbled bacon.

10

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the dip is bubbling. Serve warm with soft pretzels.
