Bacon Cheddar Dip 

Creamy seasoned dip with sharp cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon and a hint of spicy red peppers.  Perfect to serve for a potluck, summer picnic or as an appetizer.

Creamy dips are one of summer’s essentials.   A good dip deserves bragging rights and this easy dish is no exception.  This dish has been a favorite in my house for many, many years.  Summer holidays and warm weather potlucks wouldn’t be complete without all this deliciousness.

 Bacon.  I’m looking at you.  Your warm crispy touch has me in the kitchen morning after morning meeting you at the fridge to have our breakfast date.  Oh how you compliment every dish to make it a royal flush.  And cheddar cheese, well you’re my queen.

Bacon Cheddar Dip

This recipe starts with a sour cream base with added cream cheese and just a hint of mayonnaise.  The mayonnaise can be left out if desired but I think it just adds more flavor to the dip.  The dip is seasoned with essential dip seasoning like garlic and onion.  The red pepper flakes do add some heat to the dip, so adjust accordingly.

Hopefully I have enough dip to get me through spring because I’ve been waiting for this London weather to head back home.  It’s been raining and gloomy in New Orleans for almost 2 months now which I don’t mind, If I didn’t have to take pictures.  Nearly everything I shoot is in daylight and with constant dark clouds looming above me, it makes it difficult to take photos after I’m done cooking.  Hopefully, the weather will return back to London soon!

In the meantime, make a batch of this dip.  Not only is it incredibly easy to make but it pairs great with crackers, veggies and all sorts of artisan bread.
