A warm bacon cheese dip that’s perfect for dipping crackers, pita chips, or crusty fresh baked bread. The perfect appetizer to serve when company is coming or the big game is on and your family is all gathered around the TV cheering on their favorite team.
Warm Bacon Cheese Dip
I have always loved a warm dip. I guess this is why I love this warm bacon cheese dip so much. There’s just something about dipping into gooey melted cheese that is so delicious.
Years ago…many, many years ago, I discovered a recipe for a dip that you bake in a loaf of bread. I’ve made that recipes many times and it always gets tons of compliments. I really need to make that recipe again, take photos and post it here on the blog soon!
This recipe is great for family celebrations but especially for football Sunday or Super Bowl Sunday. I made this recipe for my family while they were watching the Sunday football games recently. Our daughter and son-in-law are huge football fans. We all loved this dip and I know you will too.

Tips for Making a Warm Dip
- Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature so it’s easy to blend.
- You can use an electric mixer to combine the ingredients, but I like to use my food processor.
- Always pre-cook the bacon before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.
- I like to use a pie plate to bake this recipe in…actually a quiche dish. But a pie plate works great too.
- Make sure you spray the baking dish with non-stick cooking spray before adding the dip.
- You can prepare this recipe ahead of time and then 30 minutes before your guests arrive bake it in the oven so it’s bubbly hot when the doorbell rings.
