Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip

/

Do you have plans for this holiday weekend? Tom and I are going to be in D.C. for a concert. Late last year or earlier this year I just so happened to catch on the radio that the Foo Fighters were going to have a concert. Tom has wanted to see them in concert forever so I knew there was no way we were going to pass up this opportunity.

Since the concert is on the Fourth of July and it is their twentieth anniversary tour, the concert is all day long and they're going to have fireworks at night. Not wanting to deal with holiday and concert traffic, we're going to take the Marc train down today and then we'll come home Sunday night.

We're trying to fit in a bit of sight seeing in DC as well, but we don't have definite plans for anything, so we'll see how that goes!

If you're looking for a pretty quick dip to bring to any cookouts that you might be attending, I highly suggest this one. You should refrigerate it overnight to let the flavors really sink in and meld together, but if you only have a few hours I promise it will still be a tasty concoction. (And I know this because I was impatient and tried some a few hours after refrigerating it!)


Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip
Inspired by various Pinterest recipes
Servings: about 2 1/2 cups

Ingredients:
    • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • 8 oz. sour cream (light or full fat)
    • 1 packet ranch dip mix
    • 3 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
    • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 
Directions:
1. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap or transfer to a seal-able container and refrigerate overnight.
2. If desired, cook additional bacon and crumble on top just before serving with chips, crackers, or veggies.


I actually had extra bacon and even cheese that I planned on topping this with before I served it. Except, I served it at my moms house after I transported it from home. And where was the extra bacon and cheese? In my fridge, an hour away. And then as proof for how good this is, I didn't even get to bring any home so I could haven't taken a better picture without making more. And believe me, this is not the type of dip you want to leave around.

Unless you're cool with downing an entire bag of chips and all of this dip yourself.
