CREAM CHEESE DIP INGREDIENTS

cream cheese dip raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded “old” cheddar cheese
  • 3 to 4 green onions, diced
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled into small pieces

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SHREDDED CHEESE: Old cheddar cheese is an aged cheddar that you can find with all of the other cheeses. It adds great flavor to your dip. If preferred, you can also use regular cheddar or another type of shredded cheese in this tasty dip.

BACON BITS If you don’t have time to cook bacon and make your own bacon bits, you can substitute store bought bacon bits for ease.

SIDES: There are so many options for what to serve with your cream cheese dip! I love to serve with pretzel thins, assorted crackers, or veggie sticks. You could also serve with an assortment of chips including tortilla chips and potato chips.

SPICE: If you want to spice up your dip, top with jalapeno peppers, a dash of cayenne pepper or even a bit of taco seasoning for a little kick.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CREAM CHEESE DIP RECIPE

PRO TIP: This recipe recommends using a pie plate for your dip but you could use a different shape of serving dish if you have that instead.

STEP ONE: In a medium mixing bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix together all of the ingredients, except for the bacon. Then, spread the mixture into a pie plate.

PRO TIP: Let your block of cream cheese come to room temperature so that it blends smoothly.

STEP TWO: Sprinkle 8 slices of crumbled bacon evenly over the top of the dip in the pie plate.
