Today it’s all about making my favorite Bacon Ranch Dip. Oh my gosh, I can hardly wait to share it with you. It’s that time of year when we are all going to holiday parties or family get-togethers and this recipe can be made with almost everything you have in your pantry or refrigerator.

I love when I don’t have to go to the store to make a treat to take somewhere in the neighborhood, or for a civic club party. All of these ingredients are part of my food storage stash. The less I have to go to the store, the more money I save. Therefore, recipes like this bacon ranch dip are a keeper for me. Oh, and I always stock Ritz crackers. I will share my own homemade Ranch copycat recipe below if you need it.

Bacon Ranch Dip Ingredients

  • 1. Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Mozzarella or cheddar cheese
  • Green onions
  • Bacon
  • Ranch dressing powder
  • Crackers, pretzels,  or vegetables for dipping

Most of us will have all of these ingredients in the pantry, garden, or refrigerator. This is why I love this recipe because I can make it in less than 15 minutes and head to any party. I am a visual person, so I took this picture before I mixed it all together and placed a few more bacon bits and chopped green onion on top for the garnish.

This bacon ranch dip is creamy and has just enough crunch from the bacon to make it extra yummy! Some folks think things need to be fancy or take a long time to prepare to be worthy of taking to a special event. Not me, the simple ones are my favorites.

We love to sit around the pool during the summer, or the TV on cool nights and snack on chips and dips like this one. Having family and friends around seems to make things taste all the better.

I stock Ritz crackers in case of emergency, or just for soup. I picture serving chicken or tuna salad on them to neighbors after a disaster. It will seem like we are going up and down the aisles at Costco for samples. I won’t have enough bread to make sandwiches for all of them unless the disaster happens just after my bread making day.

  1. Mix together and store in a container. I like to use pint canning jars. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes better than any bottled ranch dressing you can buy. It is so good on a salad, coleslaw and as a dip! Please keep refrigerated.

Final Word

If we stock our pantries and freezer we can make almost every recipe from scratch. Thanks again for being prepared for the unexpected. May God bless this world. May God Bless this World, Linda

  1. Linda ~ I also love quick, tasty things to make for all the parties I will be going to this season! My calendar is already filling quickly with holiday parties (mostly church related!!). I get tired of always taking the same things.

    I also love that this dip is very low carb. Served with veggies instead of crackers makes it a winner in my book. Thanks so much.


    1. Hi Leanne, I love that the dip is low carb as well. I wanted to cut up some carrots but didn’t feel like peeling them and orange in pictures (the color of carrots) are hard to photograph. But yes, this dip is great with carrots, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower. It’s so yummy! What I like about this recipe is that it’s quick to make! I love that it has bacon too! Enjoy, Linda

  2. Oh Linda! Now you know I HAVE to go get the things to make this for this weekend’s football games!
    (gee, maybe I’ll get extra so I can make some just for the pure joy of it!
    Thanks, Cheryl
