After purchasing  3 pounds of blue cheese at Costco, rookie Costco mistake! I had to figure out what in the heck I was going to make with it!

I decided that I would put my own spin on “Spinach Artichoke Dip” and instead make “Blue Cheese Spinach Dip” and throw in some bacon, because everything’s better with bacon!!
