BLT Dip Recipe

Sunday, July 12, 2020
If you're a BLT fan, you really are going to flip over this dip!



Seriously one of the best dips ever, crispy bacon, romaine lettuce tomatoes with the creamiest flavored dip in the middle of it to scoop up with any kind of bread or chips you like.



This is the most asked for at a picnic or family get together and so easy to transport and one of the best appetizers on any menu!



It keeps great over ice if you're outside at a summer picnic also and travels well.



If you love appetizers and creamy dips, try some of my  Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip,  Tuscan White Bean Dip or another family favorite Artichoke and Spinach Dip.



Dips are so easy to serve and if you have one that is very popular as this one and feeding a large crowd, make a double batch, it's the first one gone at any party!



We even love sliced fruit to use as a dipping ingredient, so if you're watching carbs no problems just check out the list!



Scroll down to my easy printable recipe card and don't forget to check out all the tips and suggestions.

A Party Favorite Dip




Don't you just love that first try on something you never had and see someone's eyes light up with a huge WOW factor?



Well, if you have a bacon fan or BLT fan in your home you're going to get that reaction!



The first time I made it, no one wanted to use it as a dip they spread it on toasted bread or stuffed it inside a wrap, no joking!


When I first made my Loaded Potato Buffalo Dip a few years ago that was the favorite, this one just took first place!



Seriously, this is the most addicting BLT dip on the planet, you must try it!

Bacon



I love applewood bacon and that's all I ever buy.


There are hickory smoked and maple-flavored kinds in your meat case at the supermarket, just pick whatever you prefer.


I never fry bacon, I always lay it in a baking pan lined with parchment and bake it until super crispy as shown on 350 degrees.


It's easier and virtually no mess unless it spills over with grease in the pan.


I have even used disposable pans, to save time in the cleaning process.


Cook the bacon any way you want but this is the easiest way I have found to prepare with little fuss.
