Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip

Share this Recipe!


It’s my 2nd recipe for SRC this week. What? There’s two? Yes. It’s a long story. Short version, Jane contacted me and asked if I could take on another blog, I said yes and the rest as they say, is history.

See, it didn’t take me even a second to think about taking this blog.

This is my friend Wendy’s blog. She blogs at The Weekend Gourmet. We are part of another close knit group together and I have many a time wandered through her blog, and made notes about what I wanted to make.

When given the chance to make something from her blog for Secret Recipe Club, I needed only to go into my folder and see what I’d kept from her – which was quite a bit. I actually didn’t go very far back to choose a recipe though.

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip

A couple of weeks ago Wendy posted this Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip and I knew as soon as I saw it, I wanted to try it. This weekend provided just the chance. We have company staying with us, and I am a firm believer of keeping my company well fed, which means lots of snacks and options throughout the day.

This was a fantastic before our late lunch and after lunch into dinner dip. In fact, something we sort of figured out on accident. It makes a great Sandwich Spread too. Just saying. But as a dip, Wendy has come up with a great recipe!

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces light sour cream
  • 1 7- ounce container of fat-free Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 slices of crumbled bacon
  • 2 sliced green onions
  • half a finely diced shallot
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1 package of ranch dip mix

Instructions

  1. Dump every single thing in a bowl and combine well. Yep, that’s essentially it.
  2. Wendy suggested refrigerating for a half hour. We let it sit in the fridge for the initial half hour. But later that day it went back in covered until we were ready for a little more.
  3. The flavor just got better as the day went on. So if you can handle not eating it for an hour or two… I definitely recommend it.
  4. That’s it! Serve with some crusty bread, veggies, crackers and pretzel sticks.

I am sorry to say that we can't get packets of ranch dip mix here in the UK. Wish I could find a way to have it mailed over. Can sometimes find the bottle of dressing.

Hi Cathy, I am sorry to hear that you cannot get packets of ranch dip over in the UK. I didn't realize it was so "American-ized". With that said, I think this dip would work with a regular bottle of ranch dressing but with maybe only the sour cream or only the yogurt with it. Not both. I will need to try it to see what works and doesn't.
