There are a couple of recipes that we always need to have on hand, like a good chocolate chip cookie recipe and a crowd favorite dip one. This Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dip Recipe is the one I always keep on hand.
It’s perfect for parties and gatherings, it’s super easy to do (hint: we make this in the Slow Cooker!!) and every time I make it, it lasts a total of 3.5 seconds in the bowl, so to say this recipe is a crowd favorite is an understatement.
For me, the reason why this is so delicious is because it’s really jam packed with all the comfort flavors we know and love: Creamy cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, green onions, some sour cream, all mixed together in one amazingly good dip that goes great with crackers and bread. You can also use it as a filling for pinwheels or to stuff baked potatoes so this recipe is really versatile as well and can multitask.
But now, going back to this Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dip, just make a double batch, or a triple, because it’s really going to fly off your table the second you put it down! It’s almost addictive! And it’s so easy that’s really worth it to be prepared.
I just basically throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker and set it on high for one hour and that’s it. The only thing that I cook is the bacon, and that’s because I prefer it crispy, so I just add it at the end. But if you don’t mind a bacon that’s a bit less crispy you could totally cook it up in the slow cooker as well with the rest of the ingredients for 2 hours.
- 2 ½ Cups sharp cheddar cheese
- 6 Bacon stripes
- 1 8 oz. cream cheese block
- ½ Cup sour cream
- ¼ Cup sliced green onions
- ⅛ Cup sliced chives
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Place the bacon in a pan over medium-low heat and cook until crispy (about 4 minutes each side).
- Cut into small pieces and set aside.
- Take the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, chives, green onion, salt, and pepper to a slow cooker.
- Cook on high for 1 hour
- When ready to serve, stir in the bacon.
- Serve and enjoy.
I hope that you enjoy this appetizer recipe as much as we do! Perfect for when the whole family comes over or you are having a game time party!
