Ingredients
  • 1 baguette, sliced thinly
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 oz monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 6 oz american cheese, diced
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 3 slices crisp bacon, crumbled
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and finely diced
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the baguette slices on a parchment lined sheet tray. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. While the baguette bakes, heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

  4. Add the shallot and the garlic and cook until softened and golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the milk and heat until hot, but not boiling.

  5. Toss the cheeses with the cornstarch and add to the milk mixture. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the cheese is completely melted, stirring constantly.

  6. Mix in the bacon and tomato.
  7. Take three toasted baguette slices and grind into bread crumbs in a food processor.
  8. Place the dip in a bowl or ideally in a fondue pot to keep warm. Top with bread crumbs and served with toasted baguettes.
