Warm Cheesy Bacon Dip Recipe
Have you ever noticed that when you think about appetizer recipes, one word always magically pops into your mind? That word, of course, is BACON!
Bacon is definitely the star of my incredible warm cheesy bacon dip, but, be sure you choose the right bacon.
For this recipe, you can’t beat Sugardale Hickory Smoked Bacon. Its perfect blend of smoke and sweetness really make this cheesy bacon dip special.

Sugardale makes a wide selection of delicious bacon products, but their Hickory Smoked Bacon is their most popular bacon variety.
Y’all, this is some tasty bacon. :)
In addition to bacon bringing the flavor, this dish is also loaded with some other delicious ingredients.
Can I get three cheers for cream cheese, sour cream, and cheddar cheese?
How to Make Hot Bacon Dip
I also recently added diced pimentos to this dish as I think it brings some beautiful color.
Also, don’t skip the 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in this warm cheesy bacon dip recipe! It’s just enough cayenne pepper to add a tiny kick of flavor, but it definitely doesn’t overpower the dish.
In fact, I normally go pretty mild on anything spicy since my family doesn’t like overly spicy dishes, and no one has ever noted that this dip is too hot for their taste buds.
As far as dipping goes, the sky is the limit.
You can use fresh crisp vegetables, crackers, potato chips or even slices of bread to dip in this hot cheddar bacon dip.
I’m actually getting a little hungry just thinking about this incredibly warm and cheesy bacon dip!
