Best Dip Ever -Cheesy Bacon Dip

Cheesy Bacon Dip

Let me start by saying this is the BEST DIP EVER!!! Now to the story on how I got the recipe for this amazing dip…last year my mother & sisters in law threw me this amazing bridal shower before my wedding, and as part of the invites they sent, they included a recipe card and asked everyone to bring a recipe to the shower and include it in a recipe box they gifted me (they also gifted me a Kitchen Aid Mixer that I use daily-my family rocks!) One of the recipes was from my friend who wrote a really cute message about the dip and ended with this sentence ‘watch it disappear’ … let me tell you, that is exactly what happens when you make this dish! 

This past weekend was my husbands families’ annual Amazing Race (one of his Aunts plans this elaborate race involving teams,obstacles, and tasks all around the area) and afterwards there was a potluck dinner, so I decided to bring this dip, and as the recipe said we watched it disappear! So here it is-super easy and yummy:

Cheesy Bacon Dip
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dip, Appetizer
Serves: 24
  • ¾ Lb thick cut bacon, cut & cooked
  • 12 oz Sour Cream (I used Light Sour Cream)
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese ( I used Reduced Fat Cream Cheese)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar (I used Reduced Fat Cheddar)
  • ½ cup Green Onions, chopped
  • 1½ Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Loaf of Round Bread (I used a rustic italian)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Cut the bacon in to small pieces and then cook, when done let cool/drain on a paper towel covered plate. In a bowl mix together the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth, then add the Worcestershire Sauce and mix, then add the green onions, cheddar and bacon and stir until well combined. Cut the center out of the round bread and get as much bread out as you can (cut the bread from the inside and use for serving). Spoon the dip mixture into the hollowed bread bowl, and then wrap with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  2. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve with bread chunks or crackers on the side

    The Dip sounds awesome – but I also want to hear more about your amazing race! Sounds like a great family activity.

      The amazing race is a great family activity (great for large groups too). So what happens is is that one of my husbands aunts plans different ‘challenges’ and then gives clues to move on to the next activity, teams are made, and then whichever team finishes first, wins. Some examples of the challenges have been: having a bucket of water and sponges, and then empty cups set up around a table, the teams have to fill/carry water with the sponge and then fill the cup, whichever team is done first moves on to the next activity (which was driving to a local park after figuring out a crossword puzzle with the name of the park and then when they got to the designated park, doing a 30 second chicken dance as a team and then moving on.) The teams get very competitive, I was lucky enough to help man one of the stations this year will hopefully get to do the same next year :)

    This cheesy dip is what I have been looking for, should be good to make ahead and put in oven just before serving. Thanks.
