Creamy Bacon and Cheese Dip is the perfect, cheesy appetizer recipe for game day or any party – especially for the Super Bowl!

Creamy Bacon & Cheese Dip appetizer recipe.  Great for Super Bowl, Football games, parties, holidays, potlucks.

Cheesy, creamy, comforting Super Bowl appetizer foods are the one thing that never ever get old to me.  I could seriously live off of hot dips if I had to, especially cheese dips.  How about you?  I made this creamy bacon and cheese dip on Tuesday for the kick-off of our church life group that Mr. Wishes and I belong to.  Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe!  I have to admit that I was a little surprised because I never anticipate that the super easy or simple recipes I make will get the rave reviews, but sometimes recipes of that nature are really the best tasting and the most popular at parties.  You will see why this one was so likable if you make it!   I think it went perfectly with the Keebler Townhouse crackers as they had a little buttery flavor to them that paired very well with the dip, but you can serve it with any crackers, chips, veggies, etc.  Have a wonderful weekend, Groundhog Day, and Super Bowl Sunday!
