Like all of the best toppings on a loaded baked potato, this Hot Bacon and Cheese Dip is packed with creamy flavor thanks to the cheese, bacon, sour cream, and chives that are melted together inside! [Tweet “Hot Bacon & Cheese Dip: the perfect party food and only 5 mins of prep! #dip #appetizer “]

Bacon and Cheese Dip

In honor of my football-loving birthday boy, today I’m sharing a man-friendly recipe that’s absolutely perfect for serving to the guys on game day! After all, nothing makes my husband happier than the arrival of fall, which automatically means football season (and just as importantly, fantasy football season).

I’m happy to report that this dip got the male seal of approval! Keith loved it with the potato chips — after all, it basically combines the tastiest toppings from a loaded baked potato and melts them together in one creamy bite. The recipe gets my seal of approval because it’s incredibly simple and FAST to prepare. This is the perfect party food for all of your gatherings this season! [Tweet “Hot Bacon & Cheese Dip: the perfect party food and only 5 mins of prep! #dip #appetizer “]

    Oh this is SO up my alley! Bacon, cheese, dip…I’m pinning it right now. And I love how easy it is too! I’m visiting from Freedom Fridays, but if you have a moment, I would love it if you would stop by and share it with us at Foodie Fridays too…we go live at 9 pm tonight. Happy Friday!

  4. Minus the cream cheese this is basically my loaded baked potato dip. But my mouth is watering thinking of adding that cream cheese and sticking it in the oven. Yum! I think I might be trying this recipe this season!

  5. Excellent combination of flavors and it is just screaming Football Food ! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday. Pinning!
