Three Cheese Bacon Dip

Three Cheese Bacon Dip

I love finding new recipes for dips.  Hot, cold, creamy, cheesy...the possibilities are endless.  I love to serve dips at parties and bring them to potlucks.  That's how I came across this recipe.

My step-dad's family was in town from Canada and we were headed to my Mom's for a big family dinner.  I really hate going to family gatherings empty-handed, so I whipped up this hot cheesy dip after doing a google search with the ingredients I had on hand.

Know what's cool about this one?  It's a cottage cheese based dip.  I had never thought to do a hot dip using cottage cheese, but with cheese, cheese, more cheese and bacon, I figured how could it go wrong?!  I took it to the party and it was a hit.  Seriously, it was gone in no time.

And as a side note, my sister's boyfriend who doesn't eat onions, and my niece who doesn't eat cottage cheese, both enjoyed digging in to this uber tasty cheesy bacon-y goodness.  I mean really, could you resist it?  Not me!

  • 16 oz container cottage cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 green onions, sliced

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. Set aside a couple of tablespoons of the bacon and green onions to use as topping after the dip is baked.  
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Spoon into a (1 or 1 1/2 qt) glass baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.  Top with the reserved bacon and green onions and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with melba crackers or tortilla chips.

  1. After everything appears "melty" I suggest using an immersion blender or food processor on the dip and then baking it for a few more minutes, otherwise the texture is much like warm cottage cheese with other cheese mixed in ;-)
