P’s Bacon Tomato Dip…Like a BLT in a bowl

Sorry, guys.  Girls rule!  At least on the Troutfest committee.  Why is that?  Because the guys sit around for endless hours droning on about rehashing the same ol’ stuff.  The girls?  We get our committee work done so we can eat and drink!  Priorities, people!  This dip/spread is something I came up with on the spur of the moment before one of our meetings.  It was one of those “use what you have because you’re desperate” ideas.

I’ve likened it to a BLT in a bowl…except I can’t come up with the “L,”  so, it is P’s Bacon Tomato Dip.  It’s also a spread.  It’s also good enough to just eat with a spoon.  Not that I’ve ever done that, of course. Erhmmm.  Anyway, it was a huge hit!  Since it was such a huge hit, for once, I came home and wrote down what I threw in there!  Win!

In addition to the Troutfest crew, my friend, Christie in Australia, has made it.  And liked it.  So has my sister, who will actually tell me when she likes or doesn’t like something!  I thought I’d post it today, since the Fourth of July weekend is coming up.  It’s perfect on a crudité platter, with or without crackers! It’s really wonderful with chips too, but be sure to use a ridged potato chip to hold up to it.

Nothin’ fancy, folks.  Just goodness in a bowl.  I think I’ll head downstairs and have a spoonful for breakfast!  *wink*

P's Bacon Tomato Dip
This dip is like...well, it's like a BLT in a bowl! Perfect for a crudité platter...great on crackers...I could even imagine it as a sandwich spread.
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (I originally used garlic salt - until I made it with a very salty bacon. I'd suggest using the powder and then salting, to taste, if you think it needs it.)
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded, diced small
  • 4 green onions (scallions, spring onions) minced
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked very crispy, minced
  • Fresh ground pepper and salt, to taste
  1. Place the first four ingredients into the bowl of your food processor, with the blade attachment, and mix until smooth.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, onions, bacon and pepper.
  3. Taste and add salt, if needed.
  4. Done!

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~

    I made a dip/spread many years age, it was very similar to this, I don’t remember using mayo though, I served it with veggies. It was not a consistency that you could use with chips. I will make it again ( so happy to have found this ) using the mayo . There is also a recipe I have been looking for, Pillsbury included it in a bag of AP flour, about forty years ago. Cheese bread that was baked in a 1lb. coffee can, I remember it included sour cream and black pepper. It was lite and airy, the recipes I have tried are very dense. Thank you, I hope you can help.

      I’m so happy you found the dip, Joyce. I hope you will like it as much as all of our friends do.

      The only bread in a coffee can that I can remember is a date/nut bread. That doesn’t sound like what you’re thinking of. Good luck with your search. Have you thought of contacting Pillsbury? I’d bet they have it in their archives? P~

    What about replacing green onions with sautéed leeks? That would give you an “L”
