Gametime Entertaining: Creamy Bacon Dip #GameTimeDips
“This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All views expressed are that of our own.”
Now that fall is here, the gametime season is finally in full swing, and we are rooting for our New England team. As a family we are not die hard football fans but we do love a good excuse to cuddle around the tv and enjoy some good company, and a delicious snack or two! When ti comes to gametime snacking, our family is very much into the salty/spicy realm of flavors.
Dips are some of our favorite gametime entertaining foods because they are relatively easy to prepare and can be made ahead of time. On game days I do not like to fuss in the kitchen and prefer a more relaxed day so making quick and easy dips like this Creamy Bacon Dip is ideal! Made with Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix, this dip is ready in around 10 minutes and is jam-packed with delicious flavor!
If you love crunchy bacon, tomato, lettuce, and the flavor of creamy onion then this dip is for you! It makes an ideal snack during a football game and is best served with chips, tortillas, and even veggie sticks which helps to balance out the dip. We love using Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix as a dip base because the possibilities are so endless when it comes to dip recipes.
Here is how to make Creamy Bacon Dip:
- 1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Golden Onion Soup Mix
- 1 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
- 1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
- 1 medium tomato, chopped (about 1 cup)
- 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled (about 1/2 cup) or 1/2 cup bacon bits
- Shredded lettuce
Cook bacon until crispy
Once bacon is done, chop tomato and add all the ingredients to a large bowl, and mix
Serve immediately or chill if desired.
Reader Tip: As you can see, we enjoyed our dip with some football themed party goods! I always try to have some festive football bowls, plates, cups, and napkins on hand for company during this time of year. It is nice to serve my appetizers, and dip in football themed ware to make gametime even more festive. I recommend checking your local Walmart party section for tons of great football themed supplies!
You can find Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix at mass retailers like Walmart in the soup isle. We bought two packs and saved $.60 by using this coupon. I honestly always have a box of Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix in my pantry because I also love to use it in burgers, and meatballs, and even meatloaf.
This dip is good with chips, but the veggies sticks help to balance out the salt aspect and provide a nice crunch!
