But let me tell you a little more about it.
How to Make Bacon Blue Cheese Dip Recipe
It starts with cooking thick-cut bacon until crispy. No problems so far, right?
Then, you whip cream cheese, half and half and blue cheese together until light and fluffy. Gracious, this part is pretty amazing, too!
Next, you stir in the crispy crumbled bacon and the chives and then spread the dip in a 10-inch skillet and bake until golden brown.
Once it has baked, you sprinkle it with more chives and serve with crackers and fruit and watch it disappear!
It seriously makes a mighty delicious appetizer and one that is perfect for so many occasions from serving during the holidays, watching football games, to just enjoying on a quiet weekend at home with your family!

I LOVE blue cheese and will definitely have this in my file of appetizers. I have a question for you, Ms. Robyn. How do you clean your little cast iron pan after cooking something like this. I have a small seasoned pan, but am reluctant to use it for a cheesy dish. I don’t want to ruin the pan. Do you prep the pan in any way? Thank you.
I sure hope you enjoy this dip! It is so flavorful and easy! I make sure that my cast iron is well seasoned before using and you can even rub a bit more olive oil into your skillet before you add the dip for baking. I hope that helps! xo
Oh iI must make this.thank you!
I hope you enjoy it, Terri! xo
This really look so good. I must try this with my wife, she’ll definitely love this as well. Thank you for this recipe.
Thanks so much! I think you’ll enjoy it – it disappeared in a flash the last time I served it!
Yummy! I really want to take this as an appetizer to Thanksgiving dinner, but I’m not sure if the rest of the fan loves bleu cheese as much as I do..I might just have to make two dishes.
Thanks for posting
I really want to make this for a party this evening but I don’t own a cast iron skillet but would it come out as well in a glass baking dish?
Sure! That will definitely work well. I hope you love it!
Thank you! I’m sure it’ll be a hit tonight 😀 Thanks for the recipe & your quick response.
Delicious and great with chips or. Fritos
Happy to hear that you enjoyed it, Janet! xo
I made this for an event at work and served it with apple slices. Everyone seemed to love it. Was really easy. I just so happened to have all the ingredients to hand for halfing the recipe. Put it together on New Year’s Day in a matter of minutes, stored in the fridge for several days, baked in the oven in the morning while I got ready for work. It smelled amazing. Thanks for the great recipe! This website is awesome.
