Who loves bacon? I'm guessing a fair number of you do. All my bacon-lovers will LOVE this dip. It's a Bacon Lettuce Tomato (aka BLT) dip that tastes just like the beloved sandwich.
1 lb bacon
1 8oz stick of cream cheese, softened*
1 cup sour cream*
1/2 cup mayo*
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 t onion powder
1/4 t garlic salt
1 T chives (I used dried)
1/2 t cracked pepper
1/2 t salt
4-5 small tomatoes, seeded and diced (or 2 large tomatoes)
2 cups shredded lettuce

*I did NOT use the fat free, more healthy options. I used the super fatty, oh so delicious options. What can I say? I didn't want a *cough*Ooh, I can't tell this is a weightwatchers recipe*cough* dip. I wanted a freakin' DIP! The lettuce and tomato cancel it all out anyway, right? 

1. Cook the bacon. I like to cook mine in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes on cooling racks set on top of a foil lined cookie sheet. Makes it nice and crispy with a lot less grease! Once it's cooked, crumble it. I use my hands. What's a little bacon grease between friends? It looks like ALOT of bacon. Don't worry. It is.
2. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, shredded cheese, and seasonings in an oven safe bowl. Now mix in the bacon.
3. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. While it's baking, dice up the tomatoes and shred the lettuce.
4. Remove from oven and let cool a little bit, then mix in the tomatoes and lettuce. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or bread rounds.
I hope you guys give this easy recipe a try. It would be a good one to bring along to a bbq or party!

Enjoy your Wednesday!

  1. Hey, Just found your blog on We are THAT family. I'm in WA, too. Near Seattle. For recipes calling for crumbled bacon, I like to use kitchen shears to cut the bacon up and cook it in a small frying pan or sauce pan. You keep all the flavor but more of the grease cooks out. I plan to try the recipe soon.

  2. Hi, Sylvia! Thanks for the tip on the bacon, I will have to try that next time. And Kayla and I are both from the Seattle area! Thanks for stopping by.
