A terrific choice whenever you need something to munch, this is also a party favorite, so bring it along to your next gathering. Perfect for football games in front of the TV or even tailgating, this dip travels like a dream.

Bacon, Onion, and Cheese Dip is Versatile

I’ve dunked all sorts of veggies into this dip, including celery, carrots, cucumber, and even zucchini slices. But, if you get tired of dunking, here are some tips for what else you can do with this versatile dip:

  • add a spoonful to scrambled eggs
  • stuff chicken breast with this cheesy mixture before baking
  • melt it over zucchini noodles
  • add a 1/4 cup to these Ham & Cheese Egg Muffins
  • and more!

Dip it, cook with it, make a sauce out of it…the variations are nearly limitless! And, you can have fun with this dip, too. Jazz it up with some hot sauce to give it some kick, swap around the cheeses, use crumbled sausage instead of bacon. Give it a try, and if you change it up, drop me a line below and let me know how you turned this Bacon, Onion, and Cheese Dip into your new favorite!
