Warm Bacon Cheddar Dip

Warm bacon cheddar dip is the cheesy good snack dip that will be the hit of your game day parties! It takes 5 minutes to make, and everyone loves it, so there won’t be any leftovers.

Disclosure: I created this recipe for warm bacon cheddar dip for the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community and its advertiser. I received compensation for this post, but all thoughts and words are my own.

Do you remember the Chili Cheese Corn Dog Casserole post from last month? Brian loves them, and according to my Pinterest boards, everyone on the Internet likes it, too. It is one of my most popular pins right now.

That recipe uses yummi, bite sized, Country Ribbon mini corn dogs. Well, when I went back to Sam’s Club last week, the corn dogs on a stick were staring at me.

Seriously! I saw the bright red box out of the corner of my eye, and then the box started calling my name. Maybe I need serious therapy, because when food talks to me, I listen, and I knew they’d be perfect for Sunday football games. Apparently, I am also an impulsive shopper.

Wanting to make something hot, cheesy and easy to dip them in was my immediate goal.

That’s where today’s recipe for warm bacon cheddar dip came perfectly into play.

This dip has the perfect ratio of cheese to bacon, plus a kick of flavor and color from yellow mustard and green onions. You know that yellow mustard is a required corn dog topping, don’t you?

I make the dip in a sauce pan on the stove top, and it takes just 5 minutes. But if you’re having a party and want a big batch, this could easily be made in a slow cooker, too. Just put all of the ingredients into the crock except for the bacon and scallions. Let it come together on low heat for an hour or so, then stir in the bacon and scallions before serving.

If you want to keep your waistline thin, consider using lower fat cheeses and low fat milk. Or you can make it “fully loaded” and just suit up in a pair of your favorite stretchy pants.

I splurge on football game days, so the recipe shown below is the full fat version. So there’s no confusion: loaded with fat = loaded with flavor. I just use a little more willpower than normal to keep my fingers out of the pot as I make it.

Here’s the easy, cheesy, warm bacon cheddar dip recipe.

    This sounds delicious! I was wondering if this would be good reheated? Our parties always last a long time and halfway through all of our dips usually need a reheat. Thanks again for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it out 🙂

    • Chef Becca November 10, 2014 (4:19 pm)

      Courtney, to be truthful, this dip never lasts more than a couple of hours at the parties I’ve taken it to, but I’ve kept it heated in a slow cooker set to low, which works really well. If you need to reheat it and it looks to be pretty thick, stir in a tiny bit of milk to thin it out a bit before you reheat it. Enjoy!

  • David October 9, 2014 (7:59 am)

    Ummm…how have we been friends this long and you’ve never told me about this bacon cheese dip? I seriously might have to ask for my friend card back. Actually, no, just send me some of this cheese dip (and corndogs, of course) and I’ll just forget that you never told me about this deliciousness! Seriously, though, two thumbs up here!

    • Chef Becca October 9, 2014 (8:09 am)

      Don’t you dare take away my friend card, Mr. “Guy who didn’t tell me that his favorite football team ISN’T the Jets” I think we just need to sit in front of a pot full of this bacon cheese dip and make our friendship even stronger 🙂

      • Courtney November 10, 2014 (4:28 pm)

        Thank you! It sounds like it won’t last long enough to need a reheat but I just wanted to be extra careful. I’m sure we will enjoy!

  • Karen @ Baking In A Tornado January 17, 2014 (2:00 pm)

    The Bacon Cheddar Dip was genius on its own, but dipping corn dogs? You sure know the way to a kid’s heart. And some adults, too.

    • Becca Heflin January 17, 2014 (3:33 pm)

      I may be getting older, but this is proof that I’m a perpetual 8 year-old 🙂

  • Meghan @ The Tasty Fork January 17, 2014 (9:35 am)

    OMG! My head just exploded!!! I totally need to try this dip…and I can’t wait till the Super Bowl! Making it this weekend!!

    • Becca Heflin January 17, 2014 (11:57 am)

      hehe… NO exploding, Meghan! You need your head for more important things 🙂

  • adam @unorthodoxepicure January 16, 2014 (5:40 pm)

    The only thing better than eating corn dogs with your Warm and Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dip, would be eating corn dogs with your Warm and Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dip — while jamming to some old Tom Jones tunes.

  • Linette January 16, 2014 (2:57 pm)

    My son would love this meal! 🙂 #client

  • Libby with Lemony Thyme January 16, 2014 (2:36 pm)
