Making Million Dollar Dip:
Even though it’s not an original ingredient, I always add a touch of cream cheese to add just a little substance to the dip. Make sure to take your cream cheese out ahead so it’s nice and soft. If you forget, put it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
I like to cook up bacon for Million Dollar Dip – with so few ingredients, a good bacon is important. In a pinch, you could use bacon bits, the real ones, or the precooked bacon, but don’t even bother if you’re going to use those dry bits from the jar. Since this recipe calls for 8 strips of bacon it’s worthwhile pulling out a sheet tray and baking it. See my post on Buffet Style Hotel Bacon for instructions. Baking that bacon just makes everything so much easier. No fuss, no mess. No spatter.
Saving Money on Million Dollar Dip:
Any holiday week is likely to have great sales, and the Super Bowl is no exception – and if you’re into indulging in chips, crackers, and all the accompaniments that go right along with the biggest game day ever, it’s a great time to buy and stock up. Me, I’m getting back to my healthy eating plan…maybe after I make something sweet for Valentine’s day, lol!
