Million Dollar Dip Ingredients

million dollar dip raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need: 

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, whipped 
  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, freshly shredded cheese off the block works best 
  • 7 green onions, chopped 
  • 1 cube Dorot crushed garlic, or can use 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 1 cup cooked bacon, chopped into small bits (can use Hormel Real Bacon Bits) 

PRO TIP:

We’d recommend grating your own cheese. Pre-shredded cheese tends to be coated with a preservative that prevents it from melting well.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHEESE: Try swapping the cheddar cheese for other types of cheeses for different flavors in this creamy dip. You could try something like Monterey Jack if you aren’t keen on strong cheddar. Or even something like a blue cheese such as Dolcelatte or Stilton will be tasty. 

BACON: Any bacon works well in this easy dip recipe, or you could swap it for something like cooked pancetta or prosciutto.

How To Make This Million Dollar Dip Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature, or you may end up with lumps in your dip.

STEP ONE: Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. 

STEP TWO: Mix ingredients together until well combined.

How To Serve

A few great ideas of things to serve with this dip include tortilla chips, pita chips, bagel chips, Ritz crackers, pretzels, or any other favorite crackers. Or, you could go for a healthy option and choose mild-flavored vegetables such as celery sticks, carrot sticks, cucumber, or zucchini. 

Don’t stop your dip exploration with this million dollar cream cheese and garlic dip. Why not try our spicy chili cheese dip? Or you could go with another classic and make a bacon cheddar cream cheese dip. Both homemade dip recipes will be a huge hit and perfect for your next party.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store any unused dip in the fridge in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap for 3 to 5 days, or even make it ahead before you need it. 

IN THE FREEZER: Because it contains both cream cheese and mayonnaise, it is best to enjoy this dip fresh and not try to freeze it.

This recipe comes from the classic Neiman Marcus party favorite but is simple to make at home and takes just a few minutes. Million dollar dip is a simple 5-minute recipe that combines creamy and cheesy with the crunch of cooked bacon.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I add chicken or sausage to this party dip?

You could add cooked chicken or sausage for added protein in this yummy dip.

Can I freeze this dip?

This copycat Neiman Marcus dip would not freeze well, and the cream cheese and mayo would not thaw well.
