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).

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.
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.
