This delicious Bacon Cheddar Dip is always a hit at any gathering!

Let’s be honest, is there really anything better than bacon AND cheese? No matter where I take this, I always bring home an empty dish (and requests for the recipe). It’s really that good!

The best part is that this is so simple it takes just about 5 minutes to put together… you can serve it right away but if you have time, let the flavors blend for a couple of hours before you serve it!

This dip is very versatile, if you don’t like onions you can certainly skip them or even replace them with celery.  You can use sour cream or replace it with plain yogurt depending what you have on hand!  If you’d like to lighten it up, use lighter versions of the cheese, sour cream and mayo!

  1. Awesome. I didn’t have enough cheddar, so I used some Parmesan. And based if other reviews i added a bit more mustard and a few extra dashes of hot sauce. I used triangles of a low carb wrap, deep fried, for chips. I also used celery which was equally as good as the chips. This is going in my rotation. So good!!5 stars

  2. I will see what it is like after it sits, but initial thought is that it is too much cheese. I also thought it needed more bacon, but that could have been because of the cheese. Good recipe, very easy to adjust for personal taste.4 stars

  3. This is an all time favorite and I pair mine w zesty crackers. They last maybe ten minutes total along w the dip! Delicious

    Zesty cracker recipie
    Four sleeves of saltine crackers laid out in rows just as in sleeves in a container that has a lid. In a shaker, I use a salad dressing container to shake the ingredients up
    1 1/4 cup vegetable oil or I use smart balance oil
    I packet of Italian seasoning
    I packet of ranch seasoning
    2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese

    Shake really well and pour over the rows of crackers. Place lid on container and flip it upside down and let sit for five or so minutes. I flip mine back in forth over an hour or so until I feel they are covered really well. They will be ready to serve right away and will stay great tasting for a week or so

    Add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a kick!

    1. This should work fine if you make it a day ahead Erica. I’d suggest a little stir before serving. Enjoy!

  4. This dip is awesome. I added slivered almonds to taste and sobstituted olive oil mayonnaise for the mayo! Fantastic 5 star recipe5 stars

  5. Easy peasy! Thanks for this recipe! Needed a dip for office tomorrow, was going to take the usual ranch dip. Then, I found this deliciously different recipe, it’s good too! I subbed chicken for bacon as some don’t eat it, but it’s delicious still!! Thank you again for this pin!!5 stars

  6. The Bacon Cheddar dip recipe was great and consumed at a party in record time. I didn’t use all the cheese, but followed the rest of the recipe. Will definitely make again. Thanks5 stars

  7. AWESOME !!! Absolutely loved it. 10 star rating !! Already have it on my list for my Boxing Day dinner this year as a dip for veggies and crackers. I refrigerated it for about an hour, then tasted it and the only thing I added was an extra tsp of Dry Mustard to give it a bit more zip!!5 stars

  8. A simple but absolutely amazing dip!! My friends raved about it the whole night! Definitely will make this again! 5 stars

  9. Here I sit at 3am in the morning printing recipes that have my mouth watering soooo much! I think I’m going to the kitchen and cook. LOL. ALL of the recipes that I’ve looked at are so mouthwatering I cannot wait to make them!!!

  10. Lose the almonds and add chopped cooked potatoes and you have Baked Potato Salad. Everyone loves it.
