Ingredients and substitutions
Cream cheese can be regular or low fat - any block cream cheese will work in this recipe.
Your cream cheese also needs to be room temperature, which makes it much easier to blend and incorporate with the other ingredients. I recommend setting it out on the kitchen counter 1-2 hours before you plan on preparing your dip.
Ranch seasoning can be homemade or store bought.
Cooked and crumbled bacon can be substituted with store bought bacon bits or pieces.
How to serve BLT dip
This dip is served cold, and can be served with a wide variety of dipping options. Some of my favorites:
- bagel chips
- celery sticks
- carrot sticks
- tortilla chips
- pork rinds
Where's the lettuce?
BLT stands for bacon, lettuce, and tomato. So... where's the lettuce in this BLT dip?
I decided against adding lettuce, because lettuce wilts easily and didn't seem like a great addition to this heavy dip. Instead I used green onions, which add flavor, crispiness, and a hint of green.
I think you'll be pleased with this swap! This dip is creamy, crunchy, and filled with flavor.
Serving your BLT dip
This dip should be served cold. Once its been sitting out for 2 hours, your dip will need additional refrigeration.
While your dip can be made a day ahead, it is best served the same day.
