This creamy BLT Dip is the ultimate warm, cheesy, party dip! It’s loaded with cream cheese, cheese, and sour cream, then baked and topped with crispy bacon, shredded lettuce and fresh tomato!
Baked BLT Dip
I’m excited to share this recipe for a yummy party dip – BLT Dip – inspired by a classic trio of ingredients. Usually when people refer to a BLT, they’re talking about a sandwich that simply includes the following three ingredients:
Hence, the acronym “BLT”. So simple, yet so delicious. I’m telling you, these three ingredients were destined to be combined. Which is why we decided to try out this BLT Dip Recipe! It’s a cheesy, creamy dip that incorporates the ingredients of a BLT sandwich, like I just mentioned, and it turned out to be even tastier than we imagined.
My Mom thought we should turn this into a warm dip by baking it in the oven for 20 minutes, which was an excellent choice! Melting all the creams and cheeses together really made this recipe perfect for dipping! Top it all off with those three magic ingredients – Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato – and you got yourself a party dip that’s sure to please!
How to make BLT Dip:
This BLT Dip was crazy simple to throw together. Here are the steps to complete the recipe:
- Cook the bacon in a large skillet and set on a paper towels to drain. Crumble bacon once it has cooled.
- In a bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, cream cheese, shredded cheese, and bacon crumbles (if you want, you can reserve a portion of the bacon to add on the top after baking the dip).
- Bake for 20 minutes at 350°.
- Top with tomatoes and lettuce (and remaining bacon crumbles if you saved some) just before serving and ENJOY!
What to eat with BLT Dip
We’ve been dipping a few different types of crackers in our BLT dip, but other items that work great include:
- bread slices
- all crackers
I’m telling you, this recipe is a huge hit! We’ve had several gatherings with family and friends over the last few weeks and every time we’ve made this dip, it has not disappointed!
Can I serve BLT Dip Cold? Sure thing! If you prefer not to bake your dip and just serve it cold, that’s totally fine. I would maybe omit the shredded cheese since it won’t combine with the other ingredients as well if it’s not melted. But if the texture won’t bother you, you can always leave it in.
Can I use miracle whip instead of mayo? Yes! It will probably have a slightly different taste, but miracle whip is a perfect substitute for mayo.
What kind of dish do you use to serve the BLT dip? I think large shallow dishes, such as glass pie pans, work best for serving this dip. If you’re baking the dip, it obviously has to be something oven safe, preferably glass. If you’re serving it cold, it doesn’t matter as much. 😉
