How to Make Bagel Dip
You’ll love how easy this is to make… but you’ll love how it tastes even more!
- Whip sour cream and cream cheese together with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy with no lumps.
- Mix in remaining ingredients by hand.
Put it in a pretty bowl, garnish with more chives if desired. Cover tightly, and chill for at least an hour before serving.
There are lots of ways to make this dip your own!
- Love spicy food? No problem, just add in 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, chipotle spice, or chili flakes!
- Like it a little more “oniony?” Add a tsp. of onion powder or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to the mix.
- Spices, herbs and seasonings I love caraway seeds so I add those in. Add your own favorite spices to make this your own.
What to Serve With It
There are so many delicious dippers for this easy dip! Here are a few of my favorites:
- Crispy bagel chips are the best! I make homemade by thinly slicing bagels, spritzing with olive oil and baking.
- Garlic crostini are crisp and hold up well.
- A combo of Ritz crackers, pretzels, corn chips, or any of your other favorite dippers. You can’t go wrong with this one!
- This bagel dip would also make an incredible veggie dip, so consider making a veggie platter with sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, mini bell peppers, and baby carrots, for a colorful and special appetizer!
This yummy dip will adapt itself well to any of your preferences. Just make sure to taste test before adding more of something, and you’ll be good to go!
