How to make this dip

This recipe is so simple to make! For the full recipe directions, make sure you scroll down to the recipe card below, but here is a brief overview:

  1. Cook the bacon until just barely crispy.
  2. Pat the bacon with paper towels to remove excess grease.
  3. Chop the bacon into small pieces.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  5. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or up to 3 days.
  6. Serve with with items to dip with, and enjoy!

Can I use bacon bits instead of cooking bacon? No, you need to cook your own bacon for this recipe! Bacon bits just won’t supply the same great flavor.

Recipe variations: You can easily change up this recipe by adding in some hot sauce or minced jalapeños, finely minced garlic, or shredded chicken!

What can you dip in bacon cheddar dip?

This dip recipe is so great because there are so many different ways to serve it! Try it with:

  • Tortilla chips (my favorite)
  • crackers
  • celery sticks
  • carrot sticks
  • sweet pepper slices
  • thick slices of baguette bread

I usually serve this in a glass bowl, but you could be extra fancy and serve this in a bread bowl, too!

Can you make this ahead of time? Yes! Stored in an air tight container in the fridge, this will keep well for up to 3 days in the fridge.
