Anytime there is a gathering of some kind, I’ve been summonsed, I mean asked (haha) to bring my Hot Bacon Dip. I usually make a big pan of it and I kid you not, it will disappear in a matter of minutes. I’m so excited to share the recipe with you! It’s perfect for game days, holidays or pretty much anytime.
How To Make Hot Bacon Dip
This is the easiest, most delicious and addicting appetizer you will ever want to make. It has only four simple ingredients. I love it served with crackers or it even goes great dipped with a slice of my French Baguette Bread.
- Cream Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Grated Cheddar Cheese
- Cook the bacon. I like to bake my bacon in the oven.
- Take the cream cheese and mash it up in a bowl.
- Add the sour cream and stir well.
- Now, grate a block of cheddar cheese.
- Once the bacon is done, add the cream cheese/sour cream mixture to your iron skillet and stir together with the bacon.
- Sprinkle a generous helping of the cheddar cheese on top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
