I made this dip for a Memorial Day party this weekend and it was a HUGE hit! So tasty and so easy to make. Let's get started shall we?

Alright, so, first things first, gather up all of your Ingredients! That includes:
  • 1 pound bacon - cooked, drained, and crumbled. {I used two 6 oz. pkgs of crispy turkey bacon; who says you can't get healthy-ish with this, right? Right.}
  • 2 {8 oz.} packages of cream cheese, softened. {Again, I used light cream cheese to kinda cut back on the fat.}
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • 2 cups shredded Fontina cheese. {I ended up just using 4 cups of mozzarella cheese because I had no idea where to find Fontina cheese.}
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream.
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise. {or miracle whip or greek yogurt, whatever your healthy -or unhealthy- heart desires.}
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard.
  • salt & pepper to taste.
  • 1 1/2 cups of chopped, seeded tomatoes.
  • 1 cup shredded Iceberg lettuce.
  • Your choice of dippers: Toasted bread rounds, crackers, or pita chips. {I used Green Giant Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt. YUM!}

Then follow the directions:
  • (1) Cook your bacon. This process could even be done the night before or sometime in advance, because it really is time consuming.
  • (2) Recruit back-up to help chop your lettuce and tomatoes while you cook the bacon.
  • (3) Realize you forgot to add 3 ingredients to your picture of all of the ingredients for this recipe.
  • Not pictured: Preheat oven to 350* and spray a 1 1/2 quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Also not pictured: Set aside 1/2 cup of crumbled bacon.
  • (4) In a large bowl, combine remaining bacon, cream cheese, shredded cheeses, sour cream, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and Dijon mustard.
  • (5) Stir it all up!
  • (6) Spoon into baking dish.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • Sprinkle chopped tomatoes, remaining 1/2 cup of crumbled bacon, and Iceberg lettuce over hot dip.
  • Serve immediately with your choice of dipping vessels.
  • Enjoy the best dip EVER. Seriously, the whole thing was gone between the Memorial Day party and taking leftovers to my parent's house for dinner that evening. So good.
