Tips How To Make The Perfect Million Dollar Dip Recipe:

  • You need a softer, creamy base, that will basically pull the dip together. I used a mix of cream cheese, blue cheese dressing and Gruyere cheese. If you are not a fan of the blue cheese dressing, feel free to use Ranch or Buttermilk salad dressing.
  • The bacon is optional, you can skip it if you want to make a vegetarian version of this dip.
  • Select a good cheddar cheese, preferably aged, so it ads flavor to the dip.
  • Don’t buy the shredded/grated cheddar cheese, get your hands on a quality cheddar cheese and grate it at home. The difference in flavor is huge.
  • The slivered almonds are added for texture, also they pair nicely with the cheese. You can use chopped pecans or chopped walnuts instead.
  • The green onion add freshness to the overall hearty and savory dip, but you can skip them if you are not an onion fan.
  • If you plan on refrigerating the dip, wrap the dish tightly in plastic wrap, this way the cheese won’t dry out.

Serve the Million Dollar Dip with a variety of crackers. I also like to add some vegetables like carrots, cucumbers or celery, they make great vessels for dipping deeper into the layered dip. Wondering how you can serve this dip? Add a large spoon on the side, so your guests can scoop some into their plates! This dip is always a huge success, you will see everyone going for seconds and asking you the recipe. Looking for more Million Dollar inspired recipes? Check these Millionaire Cookie Dough Bars!

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 20
Author: Catalina Castravet
Ingredients
  • 3 8 ounces packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 1/2 cups blue cheese salad dressing
  • 2 cups Gruyere cheese grated
  • 2 cups aged cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 packages 12 oz. each bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup green onions diced
Instructions
  1. Cook the bacon, let it cool and crumble. You can also use store bought, pre-cooked bacon.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, minced garlic and Gruyere cheese until fully combined.
  3. In a deep, large glass salad bowl, start layering the dip: 1/3 cream cheese mixture, sprinkle 1/3 silvered almonds, followed by 1/3 of the grated cheddar cheese, 1/3 of the bacon and 1/3 of the green onions.
  4. Repeat the layers two more times.
  5. Serve immediately with crackers or wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. It is best to consume the dip in 1-2 days, after that the texture will change. Also, the bacon hardens the more you keep it in the fridge.
  7. Enjoy!
