Tailgating Cheese Bake Appetizer

With both college and professional football in full swing once again, we at Superior Pecans & Gifts, would like to introduce you to an appetizer centerpiece worthy of any Saturday and Sunday marathons. We present to you the Captain Rodney's Cheese Bake.


This cheese bake, which is super easy and fast to prepare, makes a great accessory to any tailgating situation or house gathering snack line. Serve in an 9 inch glass dish or a pie tin if you are not a dishwasher.

Mix 1/2 cup of mayo, 8 oz of cream cheese, 1 cup grated cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Captain Rodney's Boucan Glaze, 2 green onions (chopped), 6 Ritz crackers (crushed) and 6 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon or half a cup of precook crumbled bacon.

  • Mix the mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and green onions in bowl evenly then place and level in a pan
  • Top the dish with the crackers and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
  • Add bacon and Glaze
The the recipe only calls for about a half cup of bacon, but if you are anything like me you will disregard the foolish suggestion and load that dish until it is nothing but bacon. Hey, you can never have too much bacon. Don’t even get me started on that Captain Rodney’s Boucan Glaze! This sweet nectar absurdly disturbingly good. Just go ahead and ignore the recommended portion of ½ a cup for this as well, the more the merrier. I pour enough of this sweet deliciousness onto my bake to make the New Orleans’s levees nervous. The combination of the bacon and the glaze (the equivalent of bacon and maple syrup) brings a much needed sweetness to this rich dish, that keeps you wanting more.
Good luck not eating it all before the games begin!
