There is something about BLTs that reminds us of childhood and makes us happy. They’re super simple to assemble, grilled to perfection, and just as good for lunch or dinner as they are a late-night snack (paired with Sabrina the Teenage Witch, are you tempted?).
But what if you combine the nostalgic fun of BLTs with the Game Day essentials which is a solid line of crisps and dips? Well luckily Anne Clark of the My Kitchen Serenity food blog is one step ahead of the game and has done so with her easy BLT dip recipe. This is your household’s new dip.
THIS MOM’S “GIANT CRISP FRIES” ARE ALL WE NEED FOR NFL GAME DAY SNACKING
“This BLT dip is our favorite easy game day appetizer because everyone loves appetizers at game day parties. It’s similar to the classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich ( BLT), but in a fun dip. Full of crispy chopped bacon, fresh diced tomatoes, creamy sour cream and cream cheese, then topped with a little shredded lettuce, ”says Clark. Easy to prepare dip and only takes about 30 minutes to prepare. Leftovers (if you have any) should be stored in the fridge and eaten the next day, ”she continues, noting that leftovers make a sensational sandwich.

1. Preheat the oven to 400 ° F. Place 8 slices of bacon on a shallow baking sheet. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until crispy. I prefer this method of cooking bacon (compared to the stovetop) because it allows you to mix the other ingredients. If you want to save on cooking time, you can use pre-cooked bacon.
2. Pat the cooked bacon dry with paper towels to remove excess fat. Use scissors or your fingers to break the cooked bacon into small pieces.
3. Place mayonnaise, sour cream and cream cheese in a bowl and mix well.
4. Add cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce, green onion and tomato. Tip: Keep a small amount of bacon, lettuce and tomato to garnish the finished dip.
