Oven-Baked Bacon Cheese Dip

This is a great dip for your Super Bowl party. How can you go wrong with warm, gooey cheese topped with bacon? By using low fat dairy products and lean bacon, the calorie count won't make you fumble either!

1/2 cup Hellmann's Low Fat Mayonnaise
1 8oz package reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese (about 3 oz if you weigh it)
2 green onions, finely chopped
Dash of cayenne pepper
5 reduced fat Ritz crackers, crushed
8 slices Oscar Meyer center cut bacon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place bacon slices in glass baking dish lined with paper towels. Cover with paper towel and microwave 3 minutes or until cooked to desired crispness. Cool and crumble. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions and cayenne pepper until well blended. Transfer the mixture to a small baking dish or pie plate and spread evenly in the dish. Top mixture with cracker crumbs and bake for 15 minutes, or until heated through. Remove the pan from the oven and top with the bacon. Serve immediately with crackers or veggies.

This really sounds good! Did you get any of this week's blizzard! Our daughter lives in Fayetteville, AR...they got 22.5 inches! I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesdays whenever you can.

I meant to tell you how much I like your blog redesign. Can your son come live with me for a few days?

Debbie, we got a foot last week, and 6 more this week. My brother lives in Rogers and got 22 inches. Thanks for the compliment on the blog design. He's a handy kid to have around. :) He does have a web design business if you ever need anything. :) He's very affordable.
