This amazing and super easy BLT Dip recipe is another great recipe from my neighbor. She loves sharing her recipes with me and is the smartie behind that amazing Mandarin Orange Cake and the fantastic Pink Party Punch.

This recipe comes together easily, the ingredients meld together perfectly, and it will very quickly become a go to party recipe.

How to Make BLT Dip

  1. Cook the bacon. Cut the bacon into small pieces and then cook until it is just beginning to crisp. Remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon.
  2. Combine the ingredients. In a bowl combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon, and diced tomatoes.
  3. Taste the dip. You may, after tasting, decide to add a small amount of salt. Whether or not you add salt depends on how salty the bacon is and what you are serving it with – salty crackers will bring their own flavor.
  4. Serve the dip with lettuce cups, or with shredded lettuce on top and crackers.

Cooking Bacon

A key step in this recipe is cooking the bacon to perfection. Be sure to dice your bacon before you cook it. When cooking it, watch it closely, and remove it from the pan just as it begins to crisp up.

We like to cook our bacon in a cast iron skillet. When it is finished cooking, remove it with a slotted spoon to eliminate some of the grease. Transfer it to a paper towel lined plate.

Using Low Fat Ingredients

If you want to cut some calories from this recipe, I suggest swapping the mayonnaise and sour cream for the low fat version of both. We’ve made it both ways and it is equally delicious. I would not recommend swapping to zero fat.

Serving this BLT Dip Recipe

Our preference for serving this BLT Dip is to add a little cut up Romaine lettuce on top for the L in BLT. Then we pair it with crackers or pretzel flats. Another great option that keeps this low carb is to use a spoon and leave lettuce cups next to it for serving.

    What size dish does this serve? My aunt had a recipe years ago and can’t locate it and it was served in 9×13…

    • Lisa Longley says

      This recipe isn’t that big. This makes roughly 3 cups.

  2. Baconator says

    I’ve made this dip many times (but it’s been a while and time to do so again!) I make this “layered” in a pie plate or some other shallow type dish. I mix a little chopped tomato and bacon into the creamy mix then spread on the plate. Then sprinkle more tomato, bacon, shredded lettuce and cheese. I gotta have cheese on my BLT sandwiches and in my BLT dips.

  3. stone says

    Can the blt dip be made in advance?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes, but you will want to wait on the lettuce until right before serving.

  4. Penny Hamm says

    Good Morning, do you have kidney friendly recipes.

    • Lisa Longley says

      That’s not really my area of expertise, unfortunately.
