  • 1 Package of bacon, apple smoked will make it more savory
  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional: for me the more the merrier)
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Crackers or sliced baguette, for serving
  • Fresh thyme or rosemary for garnish


I kid you not, the recipe will take you about 10 minutes tops, and it’s very intuitive.

  1. Cook your bacon: Start putting your bacon in a pan at medium heat, don’t need to ad extra oil, trust me you’ll be fine. Once cooked, save it for later.
  2. Prepare the Cream Cheese Base: In a medium bowl, mix the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth and creamy. This will form the base of our spread.
  3. Add Sweetness and Spice: Gently fold in the honey, cayenne pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. The honey not only adds a natural sweetness but also a smooth texture that complements the cream cheese wonderfully.
  4. Incorporate the Walnuts: Stir in the chopped walnuts. Their crunchy texture provides a delightful contrast to the creamy base, adding an extra layer of interest to every bite.
  5. Chill Before Serving: For the best flavor, cover and refrigerate the spread for at least an hour. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.
  6. Serve with Style: When ready to serve, spread over crackers or sliced baguette. Drizzle with a bit more honey for an extra touch of sweetness and garnish with fresh thyme or rosemary to add a festive look.
