Reviews for BLT Dip
"Everyone loved it! I used peppered bacon instead, as one of the reviewers did. Then I added a good shake of white pepper (1tsp), 2 cloves finely chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice to "brighten" the flavor of the (1/2 tsp) touch of curry powder we added. My 12 yr old son loves to experiment with flavors and this really kicked it up a few notches (as you can see, we really enjoy spicey food).We served it with some toasted sliced baguettes and toasted butter crackers and Ruffles (of course!) for more choices. It was gone very quickly!!! Bowl was cleaned out!!! Always the sign of a great recipe! Thank you for sharing!"
"This is my goto dip, easy peasy, and I make it with toast to spoon on, terribly good!!"
"Everyone liked it!"
"This was decent for a dip but it didn't dazzle my family. They told me it was good but they wouldn't request it. We tend to lean toward things with more flavor. They tried it with chips and crackers. We do have some extended family that likes bland food and this will be a winner for them. Keeping the recipe for the summer BBQ with them."
"This dip was delicious! I didn't put in quite as much mayo and used 1 1/4 lb pepper bacon and added 1/2 tsp garlic since my family loves it in dips! The recipe is 5 star! (0 star for ignorance...)Of course!! this dip must be kept on iced water if left out for more than several minutes! I use a bowl of ice water with all my dips unless it is in the crock pot"
"MN4Me Mayonnaise is always better then Miracle Whip"
"Love to review but first have to know: Is the "mayonnaise " mayonnaise or salad dressing as in Miracle Whip? Thank you from a beginner."
"I hosted a cookout recently and this was gone in a flash. I'll definitely make it again"
"I have to say that this dip is tasty, especially if it sits in the refrigerator for a few days. However, I had to cut the recipe in half because I planned this on the fly for a party and only had 12 oz of bacon. As far as the recipe goes I think it needs a little less mayo and more sour cream. Also, the dip was salty with only adding 12 oz of bacon so I can't imagine what it would be like with 2 lbs. Total sodium overload. I wasn't expecting to make a healthy dip but I may try lower sodium bacon the next time I make this dip."
"This is a good to go dip recipe. The dish is always empty"
"This was a hit with the girls! It was devoured right away, very good!"
"My aunt makes this dip and she always makes more than the recipe calls for because we LOVE IT!!! if you guys have not tried it believe me when I say it is a MUST. It is extremely addicting..... ??"
"This recipe is excellent but you must instill using an ice method to keep cold as a dip and perhaps dividing the amount by 1/2 so it keeps colder longer...I took my daughter to the ER because she was sickened by the dip not being kept cold (this was all she ate at the party) and out for more than 2 hours. Food safety reminders with recipes please. I am giving a 5 star for the recipe but 0 stars for food safety tips."
"Everyone I tried this on at Thanksgiving said that this dip was "just ok." There's nothing wrong with it, and it tastes fairly good, but none of us thought it was anything special."
"I have made this dip for years. I cater and serve it at most all of my events. I serve it with toast, crackers, pretzels or whatever I have on hand. I toast the bread and then quarter it for bite size portions. Also, I bake my bacon in the oven. Put it on a cookie sheet with a wire baking rack and bake at 350 until it is nice and crispy. It makes crumbling it much easier."
"I made this for a family get together. It got great "feed"back. When I make this again I will omit the green onions and may use a sweet onion or chives. I am not a lover of green onions but I did try. It's a great recipe and an easy one."
"This is addicting so be prepared to watch your bowl be emptied in no time. I served it with Wheat Thins and Club Crackers and should have made a double batch."
"This sounds like a nice recipe but 2 pounds of bacon? Sounds like so much to me."
"We just had a office potluck, i tripled this recipe, and it was gone in 2 hrs... I served it with wheat thins.. Very addicting..."
"I halved the recipe as was just serving it for family. I should have made the entire batch! Everyone loved it! Very creamy with such a meaty, bacon-y flavor."
"I enjoyed this recipe at our local Pinochle Club and it was delicious - a great success. I will make this one for sure!"
"I have made this recipe and it is absolutely awesome - wouldn't change it a bit and it is loved by everyone - and it is so simple"
"We've made this multiple times. We slip the skins off our gardens tomatoes. We course cut the bacon with kitchen shears and when it's done cooking give it a quick chop in the food processor. Rather than cooking stove top I put all the bacon on a grilling rack set in a rimmed sheet, put it in a cold oven and turn it to 350. The slow warm up renders a lot of fat and I don't have to watch or turn it. So easy to do pounds of bacon at once and while it cooks I do something else."
"This Dip is always a winner!"
"made this for xmas gathering and eveyone loved it. i added shredded cheddar cheese and also used some of the tomato for garnishing as well to get the xmas colors on top. definately a keeper"
"tHIS IS AWSOME LOVE IT."
"This recipe was a big disappointment. The glowing reviews were in sharp contrast to my experience. Don't even know if I'd want it sitting on top of a baked potato!"
"A really good dip, guests loved it. I made half of this dip for 6 people and it was more than enough, would reduce the quantity again next time around. Used 3 green onions (not 1-1/2) and 1 c of Oscar Mayer bacon bits, which turned out to be a bit too much. Added half a can of well drained rotel and made the dip the night before. Will make it again for sure."
"Made it to take to a get together, everyone LOVED it, so simple to make. Definitely a keeper."
"This is a true keeper!!!!! It makes plenty and our family had a hard time staying out of it. Making this tomorrow for my daughters graduation party....I am sure this dip will be a hit at this event as well."
"I kept looking for more seasonings and couldn't believe it really didn't need any. I made this just as written, except took one shortcut. I bought precooked bacon at Sam's. Cooked it in the micro and cut it up with kitchen shears. I also read earlier reviews and drained my roma tomatoes well, even patted them, with paper towels. Delicious just as written."
"Followed the recipe exactly except used low fat sour cream and light mayo for a group of 10 people and everyone loved it and ate it generously but it was still too much. Served with thinly sliced baguette and finely shredded lettuce on the side. I cut the raw bacon in to small pieces to cook using regular carefully washed scissors - much easier than trying to crumble slices of cooked bacon . Used scissors to cut the green onions as well. Loved the idea one reviewer suggested of adding ranch dressing mix and will try that next time. Used the leftover dip as a sandwich spread on a roast beef sandwich. omg it was sooo good. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"This was delectable. Easy enough to make. I didn't like the taste of the bacon bits even though they were real bacon. Used real bacon, and low fat mayo and sour cream. Also halved the recipe since it was for a smaller crowd. Not a drop left. great recipe for super bowl parties."
"Has anyone tried this substituting plain greek yogurt for the sour cream, to cut down on the calories? Thanks"
"OMG! This was SO delish! I was having a for a large, casual, party , so I prepared it the day before to let the flavors blend. I could barely keep myself out of it and it was a big hit with my guests! I served it with Pita chips. So easy! Well...let me paraphrase...it was mostly easy except for the "making the bacon" part. 2 lbs! Yikes! Of course, my much-more-experienced-in-the-kitchen sister says she would have cut up the bacon first, then fried it in a deep saute' pan.(Duh! why didn't I think of that?!) She says that's so much easier and a lot less greasy than what I did...microwaving/using a skillet with regular sized bacon strips. I will definitely do that next time as I do not care for the chewiness of "fresh" bottled bacon-bits, which was what I might have tried next time I make it...Good thing she gave me that tip as I just think there is no comparison between bottled real bits versus making it yourself. This recipe also got high marks from my niece who I'd sent it to along with a couple others in my family...she took to to a family get-together and reported it was completely gobbled up. She reports they'll all be making it from now on when a dip is in order. So...if you are so inclined...give it a whirl! Just don't make it too far in advance so you have some left to serve to your guests!I forgot to mention, I made this with Low-Fat Mayo and Low-Fat Sour Cream - still yumm-o!"

"This is a wonderful dip. I served it for a reception and got rave reviews. Thank you for a great recipe!"
"I added half a packet of Ranch dressing mix and everyone loved it!"
"I have made this for years and its always a favorite! My secret time saver is to use real bacon bits or crumbles. Also, I mix the bacon, sour cream, & mayo night before and let it meld together in frig. When I get ready to serve I add diced and seeded tomato and shredded lettuce. I also use toast instead of chips or crackers to make it taste authentic!"
"Excellent recipe! I cut it in half but could have easily quartered it. It did make plenty. I especially like this dip with raw broccoli and cauliflower."
"I made this to take to a birthday party and everyone loved it! Thank you for the recipe it was so good and easy."
"I've used the same ingredients for years to make the stuffed cherry tomatoes and this ip. Both are a hit. I was asked to bring them to many parties. I micro-wave my bacon (not greasy then), but after frying or nuking, make sure the bacon is cold before adding mayo and sour cream, otherwise it can crudel."
"I did not use this as a dip, but for a topper for a potato bar night. It was OFF the charts, and inhaled in nothing flat. Next time I might add a bit more crumbled bacon, but that's all I'd change."
"I made this for a BBQ and got so many compliments on this. I used miracle whip because I like it better than mayo no one had a complaint!"
"We do this one a lot for partys. I like to put just a bit of shredded lettuce in it."
"Love this recipe and have made it numerous times. I also make this for my weight-conscious guests in a fat-free version and pipe into Belgian endive. Elegant and delicious!"
"This is FANTASTIC...makes a lot too..i add a packet of hidden valley ranch"
"Really amazing. Did peppered bacon."
"This recipe has been a hit with my family for a very long time! One easy way to prepare the bacon is to cut it into little pieces before you fry it. Makes it much faster for frying and you dont have to get your fingers greasey twice! And it has a much better flavor if you make it the night prior to needed it :)"
"This is a great recipe and I have used one very similar to this for years. I have always served this on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce so everyone gets some "L" with their chip or toast. Be sure to add coarsely ground black pepper!"
"Everyone LOVED this recipe!!! I sliced a loaf of italian bread and toasted it in the oven while I was putting the dip together. Way better than crackers! Also put lettuce inside the bowl like in the picture, made for nice presentation and easy cleanup!"
"I loved the flavor of this reciepe but was very disapointed in the fact that it was watery. It looks thick in the picture but was not when I made it. I even deseeded the tomatoes the second time I made it to see if that would help but it did not."
"I made this for a house party tonight, and it was such a hit, the bowl was wiped clean. I used about 9 oz. of the "real bacon" stuff I found in the store and it really made the recipe so easy. I served it with pita slices & bagel chips, but someone had Fritos, and the corn chip & dip combo was soooo delicious."
"I added 2 cans of drained RO-TEL diced tomatoes&green chilies to my dip for the for the 4th of July. Then on top along with the green onion and bacon I added one seeded tomato chopped. It was a really big hit with our group of friends. They always count on me to bring the best dips. We love a little heat to our dips and this did the trick."
"I make this every 4th of July and everyone loves it! It tastes best if you make it the night before."
"Another easy hint: Use the real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon strips. This makes this a very easy recipe to both make and clean up after."
"Amazing bacon flavor! I added about 1 teas. garlic powder and let sit overnight to blend the flavors... When served, this dip disappeared!"
"I made this for a family get-together and it was a real hit! The "10 minute" prep time is totally unrealistic. Cooking two pounds of bacon, chopping six tomatoes, slicing three onions... if someone can accomplish this in less than ten minutes, I want that person in MY kitchen!"
"I made this for a family get together, it was a hit!! They asked for the recipe. My daughter told me it was a keeper!"
"Although this is called BLT Dip, there is not lettuce in the recipe. The flavors are reminiscent of a BLT sandwich, but it could be served in a lettuce-lined bowl if desired, as shown in the photo.As for the garnish that some people questioned, it is just crumbled bacon and green onions, as the recipe states.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"Where is the letuce in this recipe? What kind do I use?"
"My family has made something like this for a long time. Instead of onions we add shredded cheddar cheese -- we put cheese on BLTs for those in the family who don't like tomatoes. Instead of crackers, we toast bread, cut off the crust, then cut each piece into four triangles -- this will really make the recipe taste like a BLT."
"My only change is to cut recipe in half. This would make way too much for my small family."
"I have made this many many times at our RV Resort in Florida in the winter as well as for my daughter and family. It never lasts very long and so I always make more. It is good served with Scoops or even Bugles. Would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an easy and quick dip that everyone will like. I also use the real pieces of Bacon already chopped"
"I had to send this to friends for the super bowl partys.It really tastes like the BLT's we have made."
"Garnish with bacon and green onions if desired.It's crumbled bacon."
"Toni51 - Maybe the black looking garnish are black olives??? This would make a great addition to this dip!"
"Hi rshanna ... to me, the red slivers almost look like red bell peppers but, since they are not an ingredient, I'm guessing it's slivers of the plum tomatoes? Not sure what the really dark (almost black) part of the garnish is though. I doubt they fried the bacon to such a crisp that it turned black. :-)"
"There is something additional in the garnish that is not listed in the ingredients or the in the directions. Does anyone know what it is? Something red. I am guessing it might be dried tomatoes. What do you think?Whatever it is, I like the added color."
"I've made this several times for different events and always get raves and requests for the recipe. It's so easy it's almost embarassing! Ü"
"This is an awesome recipe..to make it easier I use a package of Oscar Meyer Real bacon Bits & omit onions...you can make it the night before and its even better!"
"This dip is delicious & disappears quick! Everyone always loves it"
"It's tangy good & very delectable. I loved the dip & that's comiing from a picky 12 year old hope you enjoy this dip"
"This is an awesome dip, lots of compliments where ever I take it"
