When it comes to holiday parties, the most important part for our family is the food! There are certain dishes that always show up for each holiday: Chinese food on Christmas Eve, Grandma’s ham on Easter, Mom’s chili on Halloween, and lots and lots of appetizers on New Year’s Eve. When the sisters and our families get together, we all bring appetizers that we can snack on all night long as we watch movies and countdown to the new year. This year, I am bringing this Bacon Cheese Dip- it’s loaded with thick bacon, gooey cheese, and baked to perfection!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook 8 strips of bacon to desired crispiness (get the instructions HERE for our favorite way to cook bacon). Crumble 6 strips of bacon and set aside the other two strips for later.
In a medium bowl, mix together crumbled bacon, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, 2 of the green onions, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Spread mixture in prepared 8x8" pan and cook for 10 minutes, then stir. Crumble the two remaining bacon strips and top the bacon cheese mixture with the bacon crumbles and remaining green onion. Cook for 5 more minutes, then remove from oven and serve with your favorite assorted crackers.
