Easy Game Day Bacon Cheddar Dip

Here is a super easy and delicious bacon cheddar dip that is a sure crowd pleaser! This easy recipe only calls for 3 ingredients and it’s super quick!

When I was growing up I taught myself the game of football (and basketball, and baseball and even hockey). Every time the Super bowl came around, I was THE ONLY one interested in my entire household. 

I’d throw myself these mini super bowl parties for one that included pizza, mozzarella sticks, ice cream and SO much more. It was my own little special holiday!

Imagine a dip so rich and indulgent, it’s impossible to stop at just one bite. This bacon cheddar dip is a culinary delight, made with a creamy base of cream cheese, a hearty handful of sharp cheddar, a generous sprinkle of crispy bacon, all brought together by the gentle tang of mayo and the soothing smoothness of milk. It’s a symphony of flavors and textures, perfectly balanced to tantalize your taste buds.

What are the ingredients you need for this delicious dip?

  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup milk

Now that I am a married mom of 3, super bowl parties look a little different! We now watch the game as a family and of course since I’m raising my kids to be football lovers, it’s a super big deal in this house too!

Here are some fun ways to make the best out of the big game — as a family.

Bacon Cheddar Dip FAQs:

Q: Can I use a different type of cheese? A: Yes, feel free to experiment with different types of cheese like mozzarella or gouda. However, sharp cheddar is recommended for its distinctive flavor.

Q: Can I use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon? A: Absolutely! If you’re watching your fat intake, turkey bacon is a great substitute.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before you start. This will ensure that it mixes smoothly with the other ingredients.
  • To get the best flavor, cook the bacon until it’s nice and crispy. The crunchier, the better!
