When I fist saw the picture for the Bacon Covered Loaded Cheese Dip, I was torn. By the picture, I could not tell if the topping was chocolate chips or bacon. Once I read the name of the dip and realized that it was covered with THREE POUNDS of BACON, I was in love and Hubby and The Kid, were making those puppy dog faces that meant I should make it NOW!
In the picture, it is in the shaped of a football but there are other ways you can present this dish. Put it in a casserole dish, shape it as anything you are celebrating because no matter how you present this great bacon topped dip, it will disappear quickly!
This is a very simple recipe to make and Chef John at Food Wishes does a wonderful job of showing you step by step how to make this bacon covered treat!
