This Cheesy Bacon Dip is perfect to dip with bread, chips, crackers or vegetables! A little bit of creamy, cheesy and bacon goodness in every bite!
The title Cheesy Bacon Dip says it all! This dip, which is my sons 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!I also have to admit making one of these and sitting down with my husband to watch a game or a movie and we didn’t make it through the entire dip but my son came home and easily finished it off! He didn’t even bother to reheat it!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!
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! Never a bad idea to do! My husband and I used to call this kind of thing quality control!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!

Cheesy Bacon Dip
- 1 round bread, your favorite variety
- 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream
- 2 cups cheese, shredded
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2/3 cup green onions, sliced
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cut the top 1/4 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!
