Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced (about 3 green onions)
  • 12 ounces bacon, cooked until crispy and chopped (divided)

For the Topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Reserve about 1 tablespoons of crispy bacon and some of the sliced scallions to garnish the dip.

To Make the Topping (No needed if making in the slow cooker)

  • In a small bowl, combine the Panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and melted butter. Set aside.

To Make the Dip

  • In a medium size bowl, stir together the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese until well combined. Add the bacon and green onions. Stir well.
  • Pour the dip mixture into a baking dish (2 to 2.5 qt). Sprinkle the crispy topping over the dip. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the dip is bubbly.
  • Garnish with the remaining crispy bacon and green onions. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers or bread.

Slow Cooker Instructions

  • If making in the slow cooker, spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and pour the dip mixture. Cook on low for 2 hours. Top with the remaining crispy bacon and green onions.

Notes

  • If you want to take this bacon dip to a potluck, school or office function, I am providing instructions for making this dip in your slow cooker.
  • When making bacon dip in the crock pot, you will skip the crispy topping. 
  • This appetizer recipe can be made ahead. Mix the dip ingredients and place them in the baking dish. Mix the crispy topping ingredients and place them in a ziptop bag. Refrigerate until ready to bake. Take the baking dish from the refrigerator 20 minutes before baking so the mixture is not too cold.
  • Make this dip spicy by adding a small can of medium or hot diced green chiles.
  • Nutritional information provided is an estimate and will vary based of the brands of ingredients used. 
  • Dippers like crackers or chips are not included in the nutritional information provided.
