Ingredients for dip with text labels

Ingredients Needed

Bacon ~ Smoky bacon makes everything better and it is so easy to cook bacon in the oven. No fuss, no mess and it turns out crispy every time.

Cream Cheese ~ I use full fat cream cheese in this dip and it should be softened to room temperature before making the dip. 

Mayonnaise ~ Adds the best creamy texture to this dip, use real mayo, not Miracle Whip in this recipe.

Sour Cream ~ The sour cream will lighten up the texture of the dip and adds a bit of a tangy flavor.

Shredded Cheese ~ I’ve made this dip with sharp cheddar, medium cheddar, Colby- jack and pepper- jack, use your favorite. 

Worcestershire Sauce ~ My go- to ingredient for adding flavor to just about everything!

Granulated Garlic ~ Nothing pairs better with cheese and bacon than garlic.

Salt & Pepper 

Smoked Almonds ~ Any roasted or toasted nuts that you have on hand will work in this dip. I love the extra smokiness and crunch that the almonds add to it. 

Chips, crackers or vegetables for serving.

  1. Haha yes, dip is it’s own food group at my house, too! I’m loving the choice of smoked almonds for the recipe, and also the little hit of Worcestershire. My mouth is watering!

  2. Um what?! I didn’t know Cheez-Its had a new puffed up version! I must find these. Your bacon cheese dip sounds like a great pairing too.

  3. Dips are always a huge part of our food spread rather it is just us or if we have people over. The cheese ball sounds delicious! #client
