You’ll flip for this baked BLT dip

FeaturedFood & Drink

Written by:

BLTs are a classic sandwich with a history that dates at least as far back as the 1920s. The saltiness of the bacon, the tanginess of the mayo, the sweetness of the tomato, the crunchiness of the lettuce — it all harmonizes beautifully into the perfect handheld delight.

And now you can satisfy your BLT craving with the perfect party dip. Betty Crocker’s recipe for Baked BLT Dip will have you rethinking the way you look at this sandwich. It also just may become your go-to dip recipe whenever you have a crowd to please.

Made with bacon, mayo, sour cream, cream cheese AND cheddar cheese, this dip is as creamy and cheesy as all get-out. It takes only 20 minutes to bake, although you’ll need to factor in some extra time if you decide to fry your own bacon instead of using pre-made bacon crumbles (by the way, here’s an easy, splatter-free way to cook bacon you may not have tried). 

Find the whole recipe for the BLT dip here.

While Betty Crocker suggests serving the dip hot and pairing it with corn chips, Yellow Bliss Road insists this dip actually works best when served cold. That actually makes sense when you think about it, as BLTs are a cold sandwich.

She makes her BLT dip with cooked bacon, mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, garlic powder and seasoned salt. Instead of baking it, she chills it until she’s ready to serve it. Then the dip is paired with crunchy crostini. Here’s the full recipe.

Meanwhile, over at Dinner at the Zoo, BLT dip is given an extra zesty tang, thanks to the help of a packet of ranch dressing seasoning. Here’s the full recipe.

Counting carbs this year? No worries. You can actually make this dip keto-friendly by serving it with vegetables instead of with chips or crackers. Find a keto-approved BLT dip from the blogger behind Real Balanced. She suggests using pork rinds, low-carb veggies or even low-carb crackers as a dipping buddy for this recipe.

Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning produced by fermenting soybeans with salt and kōji and sometimes rice, barley, seaweed or other ingredients.  On its own, miso is incredibly salty and pungent. But mixed in with some water and other ingredients, you’ll have a wonderful, savory soup that is perfect for everything from a nice dinner to when you’re under the weather.

This is a soup that reportedly began in Naples, Italy. The name comes from the Italian words “minestra miritata,” or “married soup.” However, this is not a reference to actually getting married. Instead, this references the “marriage” of some sort of greens (such as spinach, chard or kale) and meat. In many cases, the meat is beef or pork. But in this healthier version, I used ground turkey.

While this does have some curry flavor, I wouldn’t consider this an Indian dish. It definitely has that sort of flavor, but I guess you could say it’s pretty Americanized. The curry flavor here is mild and the soup is comforting. It’s filling and full of good nutrition. You can make it vegan/vegetarian or not, depending on the broth you use. It’s just a tasty, all-around lentil soup. It also makes a large amount so you can freeze some for future meals.

Dutch ovens are pots that are either made of cast iron, or are covered in an enamel. They have a good fitting lid made of the same material (which can also be used as a separate cooking pan in many cases). They are great at either braising meats on high heat or cooking food at low temperatures over long periods of time. They have thick walls that distribute heat very evenly, which means the cooking process can be a bit more “intense.”

If you aren’t used to cooking in one, you’ll want to keep an eye on things the first few times you use one. Food like chili tends to cook a bit faster in a good dutch oven.

If you love sweet potatoes, then it’s not a far jump to assume you’ll love a good sweet potato soup. You get all that good sweet potato flavor, a smooth and creamy brothiness, plus anything else you choose to add for flavor or texture. I’ve made several sweet potato soups over the years. But this is the first I’ve added bacon to, and I can’t say that I’m sorry. It was pretty delicious!

A while back, I did a recipe for curried pumpkin soup. I found myself thinking about it, but since my son doesn’t care for curry (Did I bring the wrong child home from the hospital?), I had to go another route.

This soup hit the spot for sure! My son liked it, I liked it and even a friend of mine enjoyed it thoroughly. Needless to say, it disappeared pretty quickly. I will definitely have to make this again!
