Enjoy this Warm Bacon Cheese Dip hot from the oven, made even more scrumptious when served with crunchy crackers, tasty pita chips, or fresh-baked semi-homemade bread bowls.
It's the ideal way to get your family and friends together for all those special moments - whether it's cheering on their team during an exhilarating sports match or simply gathering round in good company!
I have always loved a warm dip. There's something about dipping into gooey melted cheese that is delicious.
Years ago...many, many years ago, I discovered a recipe for a warm bacon cheese dip that was baked in a loaf of bread. It was always a hit whenever I made it for family and friends.
This dip is very similar to my Homemade Queso Dip. That dip is served warm also...yum!
