This creamy, Easy Cheesy Bacon Dip is perfect for bread, tortilla or corn chips, crackers or vegetables! A warm bacon, cream cheese dip recipe loved by all!
Warm Bacon Cheese Dip
The title Easy Cheesy Bacon Dip says it all! This dip, which is my son's favorite dip by the way, is totally addictive and a definite crowd pleaser, every time I make it. I can never seem to make enough!
There is something about a warm bacon cheese dip that makes it impossible to stop eating until it is done. This easy cream cheese bread dip is one of those dips.
Actually, this is the perfect dip to make for any party, event or even movie night. It takes little time to prepare and it is super easy to put together.
So, not only is this a simple snack or appetizer to make but I have never had anyone say they even dislike it. I am always asked for the recipe and I am usually told they were glad I didn't make two.
It's true. We would have eaten the second one too. I'm telling you this stuff is that tasty.
Crack Cheddar Bacon Dip
This dip is often referred to as "crack" because it is that addictive and impossible to stop until it is gone!
I just love using cream cheese, more cheese or cheeses and bacon to make the most wonderful dip. Yes, there are a few more ingredients but the most important are the cheeses and the bacon!
I think we will all agree.
Cream cheese and bacon make the best dips, in my opinion. Especially including other cheeses as well. WOW GOOD!
Baked Bacon Cheese Dip
Also, you can enjoy this crack cheddar bacon dip with your favorite cheeses. We usually use a cheddar mozzarella blend of some kind and I love adding some colby jack or Monterey jack cheese too.
It's true that by shredding your own cheeses you will be happier with the final result. As much as I prefer to use cheese that I have shredded myself I can't always do that.
Time doesn't always permit or I simply just don't feel like doing all of the shredding.
This baked bacon cheese dip still tastes great with store bought shredded cheese. I use it myself and I always will.
Regardless of whether you prefer to buy your shredded cheese or not, I urge you to also try different kinds of cheese too. There is nothing wrong with adding a little of this or a little of that.
Cream Cheese Dips
I also have to admit making one of these cream cheese dips and sitting down with my husband to watch a game or a movie and we just can't make it through the entire dip ourselves.
Luckily, my son came home and easily finished it off. He didn't even bother to reheat it which drives me crazy! I mean it's a cheese dip. How could he not want to eat it warm?
If he was younger I would have reheated it for him, just in case you were wondering!
Cheese Dip Recipe
Breaking apart the bread, after most of the Cheesy Bacon Dip is gone, is definitely my favorite part of making this dip.
I just love the way the crust or outside of the bread tastes with the cheesy mixture baked right into it. Boy oh boy each bite is so tasty!
Best Baked Cheese Dip
That being said, you also have the option of filling individual dipping bowls for everyone.
Yes, they are more work but it worked beautifully when the kids were small. I would either make individual bowls for everyone or one bigger bun or roll for the adults and then a smaller one filled for each child.
If you choose to do this you need to drastically reduce your cooking time. Your goal is to heat the dip through so your cooking time will be as little as 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of your buns or rolls.
You might want to prepare an extra one first, ahead of time, wrap it in tinfoil and check it after 10 minutes. At least you will know your cooking time for later on if you need to.
It also gives you a chance to check out the dip and taste a little at the same time which is never a bad idea to do! ? My husband and I used to call this kind of thing quality control! ?

How to make Easy Cheesy Bacon Dip
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the top ¼ off of the bread round and carefully hollow out the bread leaving about a 1 inch shell. Cut the removed bread into bite sized cubes and the sliced off bread top, if desired, and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer, beat cream cheese and then add sour cream, cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce.
Beat until totally incorporated.
Add bacon and onions.
Stir until as evenly distributed as possible.
Spoon inside of hollow bread shell.
Wrap in heavy foil or 2 layers of original, and bake for 1 hour or until just heated through.
You can also broil the top for a minute or two to brown it if you would like. I usually don't.
Serve with bread cubes and crackers. Enjoy!
So the next time you are looking for an easy snack or appetizer to make, that everyone will love, look no further! This Cheesy Bacon Dip is definitely the dip for you!
