What's not to like about a dip with bacon in it?? This is a major hit, usually I have to double the recipe and still have no leftover!

Slow Cooker Crock Pot


  • 1 pkg
    cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 c
  • 1/4 tsp
    dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp
  • 1 c
    shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3
    green onions, chopped fine
  • 8 slice
    bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 c
    crushed butter flavored crackers

How to Make Hot Bacon Cheese Dip


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, thyme and pepper. Stir in the cheese, green onions, and half of the bacon. Transfer to a greased 3 cup baking dish.
  2. Bake uncovered at 350* for 13 to 15 minutes or until bubbly. Top with crushed crackers and remaining bacon. Serve with assorted crackers.
  3. ***NOTE***
    My family likes it with more bacon so I use 10 thick sliced bacon strips when I make it. I also shred my own cheese instead of using the preshredded cheese because it melts better. I usually skip the cracker part, and I don't bake it but I put it in my small crock pot and it works beautifully especially if you are taking someplace for a potluck ( if you do this just mix all the bacon into the cheese instead of saving half for the top). However, when I do bake it at home I make my own buttered cracker crumbs instead of the boxed kind. (just take saltines and crush them up and then drizzle with melted butter and toss to mix gently).
