As soon as the air starts to feel a little bit more crisp and televisions are tuned into football all day Saturday and Sunday, I start to get the itch to whip up dips for snacking. When it comes to dip recipes, there is absolutely no way you can go wrong with cheese and bacon. The more of both, the better, as far as I’m concerned.

This warm and cheesy bacon dip combines cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon and scallions, and is baked until melted, bubbly and perfect for dipping.

A few years ago, I shared a recipe for loaded baked potato dip… if you haven’t tried it yet (and you should!), it combines all of the flavors that you would typically use to top a baked potato – sour cream, bacon, cheese and scallions (or chives) – and then you dig in with potato chips. This warm and cheesy bacon dip basically takes all of those same flavors and adds cream cheese for extra creaminess, and bakes it up into a melted, bubbling hot dip.

You can serve this with potato chips, tortilla chips, pita chips, baguette slices, your favorite crackers… even vegetables if you want to try to counteract all of that cheesy bacon goodness.

What are your favorite types of dips for game day snacking?
