This month, we are bringing you some food favorites of our own Karie Waddell Gallo!

Karie joined Saxon Financial Consulting in April of 2003 as our Office Manager. Karie is now our Director of Individual Insurance and Medicare Benefits.

When it comes to eating out, her favorite spot is the Wild Ginger Asian Bistro here in Cincinnati. “Their Crispy Pad Thai is soooo delicious. Because I am not a ‘spicy’ food lover, they allow you to customize your level of spice. This makes it perfect for each individual. The sushi is quite good also. Lots of variety to choose from.”

“When we have a “Dine In” night we usually invite family over for “Appetizer Night”. Our favorites include: Buffalo Chicken Dip, Hanky Panky, Boneless wings and our All-time Favorite “Go to” Dish: Swiss Cheese Bacon Dip. It is best served warm and gooey. We prefer Town House Crackers for dipping.”

Here’s what you’ll need:baconswiss

  • 8oz of whipped cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of mayo
  • 2oz of chopped green onion
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 1 pack real bacon bits


Here’s how Karie does it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix cream cheese, mayo, green onion, and swiss cheese together in a flat cooking dish.
  3. Sprinkle the bacon bits over the top.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.


With a great appetizer, who needs a main course? This looks yummy Karie!
