5-Minute Million Dollar Dip Recipe

You can’t ever have enough dip recipes, especially throughout the football and holiday season. It seems like every weekend there is some type of event that requires a dish to pass. I am all about simplicity when it comes to preparing these types of appetizers. So, this million-dollar dip is right up my alley.

It is so insanely simple to make. There are only two steps. You just mix all the ingredients together and serve! It’s a great dip to make when you’re in a time crunch or simply forgot that you needed to make something. I like to keep all of the ingredients on hand during this time of year, just in case.

Additions & Substitutions

  • Cream cheese and mayonnaise: You can use full fat, or less fat for both the cream cheese and mayonnaise. I haven’t noticed a difference in taste or consistency when using the ⅓ or low fat options.
  • Shredded cheese: Fresh off the block cheddar cheese works best for this recipe and offers great flavor, but you can also use store-bought packages of shredded cheese as well. You can also use a different flavor from cheddar if you’d like!
  • Crushed garlic: If you don’t have any crushed garlic, you can use 1 tbsp of garlic paste instead.
  • Bacon bits: This dip can be made with your own bacon that you cook and chop into bits, or you can use a store-bought package of bacon bits. I usually keep a package of bacon bits in the pantry because I like them on my salads, so I use those quite often.

How to Make Million Dollar Dip

  1. Put cream cheese, mayonnaise, shredded cheddar cheese, green onions, crushed garlic, cooked bacon in a large bowl.
    Pro-Tip: Save a little bit of bacon and cheese for the top of the dip. You can mix up the amount of the ingredients you add in your dip. If you love bacon, add a bit more! More of a cheese fan? Shred more on the top! You can get creative with it.

How to Serve

You can serve your dip with any number of things. I usually bring a variety of items to serve with it. Here are some of my go-to options to serve with:

  • Chips: this dip goes great with any type of chip, but I especially love it with tortilla chips and plain ruffles potato chips.
  • Crackers: Ritz crackers, Triscuits, Club crackers, you name it! You can’t go wrong pairing this dip with any brand crackers.
  • Vegetables: If you want to keep it healthier and low carb, go for fresh veggies. This dip is great with carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and radishes.
  • Pretzels: any pretzels will be fine, regular or pretzel sticks are great. Another delicious option is to serve this with pretzel thins!

How to Store

This dip can be made in advance and stored in the fridge covered in plastic wrap. If you have any leftovers, they should also be covered tightly and stored in the fridge. I don’t recommend freezing this recipe, as the mayonnaise and cream cheese don’t tend to freeze and thaw well.
