Monday Morning Mmmm: BLT Dip

Recipe for BLT Dip - perfect for a party or game day!

Last Sunday was a day we’d been waiting for: Small Group Night! Our small group took a break over the holidays, and it seemed to last forever. We were anxious to see our new friends, make some new ones and eat some snacks.

Okay, so maybe the snacks were a distant third. But I was excited to try out a couple new recipes. (Letting myself off the hook for a weekly recipe has been a relief, but I miss the excuse to try out all the food I see on Pinterest!)

Since the Superbowl is coming up – you know, the Superbowl of Snack Parties? – deciding to make a new dip was a no-brainer. And I just so happened to have a dip pinned and ready to try. I found this BLT Dip on Pinterest, posted from Someone Left the Cake Out in the Rain.

You know you can’t go wrong with a melty, cheesy dip that features bacon in a big way.
And this dip was no different. It was, however, different than my other favorite melty, cheesy dip that features bacon in a big way. I love the addition of lettuce and tomato, and the Italian seasoning instead of the spicy peppers.


1 pound bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled, and divided
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
4 cups shredded Italian mix cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups diced, seeded tomatoes
1 cup shredded Iceberg lettuce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except 1/2 cup bacon, lettuce and tomato. Put dip mixture in baking dish, and bake for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining bacon, lettuce and tomato on top of dip, and serve with crackers or chips. (The original blogger suggested Stacy’s Pita Chips, which sounds great – but I couldn’t find them at the grocery store when I went shopping. I also think garlic rye chips would be tasty, too.)

This dip went over pretty well at our small group, but I will warn you that the dip doesn’t keep well. You might as well just eat it all at once. (Or scrape off the vegetables before you reheat it. Not that anyone at my house did that . . .)

Who do you serve new recipes that you’re trying out?
