Easy BLT Dip

I love dips like nobody’s business. I can go to a restaurant or a party, and if there’s dip I’ll happily skip right over the entree and make a meal of the dip. The cheesier and more loaded with goodies, the better. This BLT dip delivers big time.

I put a spin on traditional BLT flavors and created this dip that’s perfect for tailgating, holiday parties or events, or anytime you’re in need of some cheesy, bacon-laden comfort food. It’s an easy, no-mixer, no-fuss recipe. To save time, I used pre-cooked bacon slices and microwaved them for about 15 seconds before slicing them and stirring into a bowl creamy bowl of goodness.

There’s mayo, sour cream, cream cheese, and shredded cheese. The dip isn’t low-cal or low-fat, but it certainly tastes wonderful. Cheesy, creamy, and perfectly savory.

There are green and dried onions for flavor, while tomatoes add juiciness and a nice pop of freshness. Serve with chips, crackers, or just dig in with a spoon. It’ll be your new favorite way to eat a BLT!

What’s in BLT Dip? 

This easy dip recipe uses just eight ingredients and takes not even 10 minutes to prep. The ingredients you’ll need for this addicting dip are: 

  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise 
  • Cream cheese
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cooked bacon
  • Green onions
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Dried minced onions

The next time you have friends over, you have to make this dip! It’s seriously so good, and everyone always loves it.

How to Make BLT Dip

To make this BLT dip, you’ll first need to stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and cream cheese until smooth. Then stir in most of the shredded cheese, and follow with remaining ingredients. Spread dip into greased pie plate and garnish with reserved cheese. 

Bake the dip for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese on top has melted and it’s heated all the way through. If you like your cheese to be golden brown, bake it for an additional 10 minutes. 

Serve your delicious BLT dip immediately with chips, crackers, or toasted bread. It’s best warm and fresh, but it’s still great after it’s cooled down. 

Can I Use Turkey Bacon in This? 

Yes, feel free to use any bacon you’d like in this dip recipe. To make your life easier, I recommend buying pre-cooked bacon and heating it for a few seconds before slicing it, but you can also buy raw bacon and cook it yourself. 

Can I Use Another Type of Shredded Cheese? 

Yes, although I personally like the flavor of sharp cheddar cheese paired with the juicy tomatoes and creamy filling. But feel free to play around with shredded cheese combinations if there’s another type of cheese you prefer.

Tips for Making BLT Dip

For my dip, I used lite sour cream and cream cheese. This dip still came out incredibly rich and creamy, so if you were wondering whether or not you should use the full-fat versions just know that you have options! 

Before stirring in the cream cheese, make sure it’s been softened to room temperature. If the cream cheese is too stiff, you won’t be able to stir it into the mayo and sour cream properly and your dip will have little chunks of cream cheese running through it. 

Also, make sure you’re using brick-style cream cheese and not the whipped kind in the plastic containers. Trust me, it makes a difference! 

Lastly, I like to reserve a little of each of the filling ingredients to sprinkle on top as garnish after the BLT dip is out of the oven. You don’t have to do this, but adding those few garnishes makes it easier for guests to identify this dip, plus it adds a nice pop of color!
