From tailgating to Christmas parties, you can’t beat this cheesy bacon corn dip as a go-to appetizer! So simple to make and perfect whether it is served hot or cold making it a party favorite for both cook and guest.
Whenever I am planning a party, I always look for recipes that I can make ahead and then serve hot, cold or even room temperature. Need the same thing? Look no further than this cheesy bacon corn dip then.
This dip uses frozen corn that has been thawed. But, if you are short on time, you can totally swap that out for canned corn instead. If you have Mexicorn, that is even better!
If you choose to serve it hot, you have two great options:
- A small crockpot which will keep it warm through the entire party
- Put it in a small cast iron skillet to bake. The skillet will hold the heat in and keep your dip warmer longer than most baking dishes.
Looking for dipper options? Here are a few great ideas:
- Tortilla Chips (scoops work great)
- Roasted sweet potato slices
- Toasted bread slices
- Jicama wedges (great for low carb)
- Pita chips
This dip is definitely on every party menu when we are hosting. It is so easy to make and is always a HUGE hit. Plus, who can resist bacon and cheese?
