Bacon Cheese Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 8oz packages of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 cups of sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 16 oz shredded cheddar cheese plus a little extra for sprinkling on top (1/2 cup to 1 cup depending on how cheesy you want it – I go for the cup!)
  • 6-8 pieces of cooked bacon
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Paprika to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Fry the bacon in a pan until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Discard all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease. Saute the diced onion in the reserved bacon grease until translucent – season with salt & pepper.
  • Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, 16oz of cheddar cheese, & the sauteed onion in a large bowl until smooth. Chop the bacon, & fold it in. Spread the mixture out into a 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, & paprika to taste.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes.
  • Serve with crackers, chips, or bread.
