Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip
Delicious appetizer for any party or potluck! My famous Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip!! Grab some crusty bread and bring this dip to your next party!
Remember I told you about the fabulous dip served each year at the Witch’s Tea hosted by my friend Meridee? She is letting me share her Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip recipe with all of you! I recently served it at a family party and it was a huge hit! The salty bacon, the kick from the onions and horseradish & creamy cheese all spread over the crispy bread. It is heaven in a bite! It is the perfect bread dip for any fall or winter party. I plan to make it again on Halloween night so that as we answer the door for our trick-or-treaters we have something yummy to eat. It would also be a perfect appetizer for Thanksgiving or any holiday party!
Bacon Cream Cheese Bread Dip
- 8 slices of Bacon – cooked crisp and crumbled
- 8 oz Cream Cheese – room temperature
- 1/2 c. Mayonnaise
- 2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
- 1 1/2 c. shredded Swiss Cheese
- 3 Green Onions diced
- 1/2 tsp. Horseradish Sauce
Combine all ingredients and mix well using a rubber spatula. Transfer to a shallow baking dish (about 9 x 9) and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
For the bread, I purchase or make 2 loaves of artisan bread. I cut 1/2 inch slices and brush one side of each slice with a small amount of olive oil and then broil in the oven for just a few minutes on a baking sheet until toasted.
UPDATE: I’ve made this a few times with Sharp Cheddar instead of Swiss – and I can attest to the deliciousness of both cheeses. Try it, you won’t be disappointed with either!
Can you make this in a crockpot?
I’ve never tried making it in a crockpot. However, I often mix everything up in the morning and then bake just before serving. It gets eaten so fast that it doesn’t have time to get cold. 🙂
Since I am very short of time on the morning of my brunch, could I make the night before? This way I could just pop it in at the last minute.
Yes, you could certainly assemble the dip ingredients the night before and just pop it into the oven in the morning!
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I served it at a bridal shower and several people asked for the recipe. It was a big hit! I also wanted to let you know that I’ve linked to your recipe from my blog. Thanks again!!!
I’m so glad you loved it! Thanks for sharing the link on your blog! I’ve been making it with sharp cheddar cheese recently and it’s amazing that way too!
Hello from Iowa :)) This cheese dip looks wonderful :)) Did you use the while + green part of the onions ? Thanks !!!
I use about 3/4 of the entire green onion – so yes I do use white and green. 🙂 Hope that helps!
Totally making this. Thanks for sharing!!
You won’t regret it!!
I want to eat my screen, lol. This sounds SO good!
This looks great! Anything with bacon is a-okay in my mind.
Bacon AND cream cheese?!?! How could you go wrong? This sounds so yummy!
