Country BLT Dip recipe.

I’m a big fan of a Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato Sandwich, better known as a BLT. How about you?

We’ve got a fast food place here where I live that has .99cent BLT Sandwiches on their menu. Sadly, it’s all on a hamburger bun as opposed to white bread, but for one dollar, it’s not a bad deal.

I’ve been known to pick up a couple late night and have them for breakfast the next morning. And, they actually place about three strips of bacon on each one. Not a bad deal in my opinion.

Recently, I saw mention in some of my readings online about something called Country BLT Dip. It caught my attention.

Looking into it, I found a good number of recipes, and thought it would make a great recipe for posting here on Taste of Southern. I hope you’ll like it.

One thing you might find different with this one is I actually place some lettuce in the dip itself. Most of the recipes I found elsewhere didn’t do that. They do however use lettuce as garnishment along with the dip, so I guess that’s what makes it a bacon, lettuce, and tomato dip.

From Baby Showers to Birthday Parties, Football games to New Years celebrations, I think you’ll really enjoy this quick and easy recipe.

It appears there is some type of big football game coming up this weekend. Something about a Super Bowl? This might just be a good weekend to try our recipe. Just an idea. (Smile)

Cooking the bacon is the only thing that takes a little time to make this, so do that while you’re chopping up the lettuce and tomato.

It does need to be refrigerated for at least an hour before serving, but I found that it tasted even better the next day, so keep that in mind when planning yours.

Ready to give our version of Country BLT a try? Alright then, grab some chips and lets get in the kitchen. In other words… Let’s Get Cooking!

 

Country BLT Dip, you'll need these ingredients.
Country BLT Dip recipe:  You’ll need these ingredients.

Before you start this recipe, you’ll need to let the cream cheese soften to about room temperature for easier mixing. It will also help to place the bacon in your freezer for about 30 minutes because we’re going to slice it into small pieces later on. Getting it good and cold prior to that will help a lot.

 

Country BLT Dip, rinse the veggies.
Rinse the lettuce and tomatoes under some cool running water.

 

Country BLT Dip, remove the seeds from the tomatoes.
Remove the seeds from the tomatoes.

I sliced these Roma Tomatoes in half lengthwise, then quartered them. Using a small paring knife, I cut out the core of the tomatoes with the seeds.

 

Country BLT Dip, dice the tomatoes.
Dice the tomatoes.

Reserve just a few of the tomatoes for garnish later on. You’ll also want to do the same with a little of the lettuce and the bacon.

 

Country BLT Dip, remove a couple of the lettuce leaves.
Remove a couple of the lettuce leaves.

 

Country BLT Dip, roll the leaves up together.
Roll the leaves up together.

 

Country BLT Dip, slice the rolled up leaves lengthwise.
Slice the rolled up leaves lengthwise, then turn it and slice it again… into quarters.

 

Country BLT Dip, slice the lettuce.
Starting at one end, slice the lettuce roll into small pieces.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the sour cream.
Pull out a large mixing bowl, and add the sour cream.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the softened cream cheese.
Add the softened cream cheese.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the mayo.
Add the mayonnaise. Dukes of course… if you’ve got it.

Dukes doesn’t pay me to say that, I’ve just always loved my Duke’s Mayonnaise.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the Lawrys seasoning salt.
Add the Lawry’s Seasoning Salt.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the onion powder.
Add the onion powder.

 

Country BLT Dip, give it a gentle stir to combine.
Give it a gentle stir to combine all the ingredients thus far.

 

Country BLT Dip, slice the bacon.
Slice the bacon into about 1/2 inch strips.

As mentioned, the bacon will be easier to cut if you place the package in your freezer for about 30 minutes prior to doing this part.

Remove it from the package, bunch it up together, then carefully slice it into sections with a good sharp knife. Remember, dull knives are the most dangerous, you should always work with a good sharp knife in the kitchen.

 

Country BLT Dip, place the bacon slices in a skillet.
Place a skillet over medium heat on your stove top. Add the bacon.

 

Country BLT Dip, brown the bacon.
Brown the bacon until good and crispy.

This took me about 20 minutes over heat just a notch below medium.

 

Country BLT Dip, remove the bacon and place on a paper towel lined plate.
Using a slotted spoon, remove the cooked bacon and place it on a paper towel lined plate. Let it cool and drain.

Be sure to save that leftover bacon grease. Store it in a container inside your refrigerator. It’s great for seasoning lots of vegetables in future recipes.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the tomatoes.
Add the tomatoes to the dip mixture.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the lettuce.
Add the lettuce.

This is where my version of this recipe differs from most others that I’ve seen. They don’t add any lettuce into the dip itself.

It’s called BLT Dip… it needs lettuce. Right?

Spinach Dip has spinach in it, so you would think a recipe called BLT would include some lettuce. Am I right on this?

Just go ahead and add a big handful of the lettuce. It’ll be alright.

 

Country BLT Dip, add the bacon.
Add the bacon.

Resist the temptation to nibble on the bacon while you’re working on the recipe. Okay, maybe removing one little piece will not be noticed. Just saying.

 

Country BLT Dip, stir gently to combine.
Gently stir everything together until it’s well combined.

I know you’re going to taste it. I had too. But, I’d advise you not to add any more seasoning salt or onion powder at this point. We’re going to refrigerate it and let it sit for awhile so all the flavors can meld together. After that, you can add anything else you might think it needs.

As a note, I did add a little more seasoning salt to mine, but it didn’t take much.

 

Country BLT Dip, cover and refrigerate.
Cover the dip and place it in your refrigerator for at least one hour prior to serving.

It’s even better, I think, if you make it a day ahead of time so it can have even more time to develop a stronger bacon flavor. That is… if you can wait that long.

 

Country BLT Dip, enjoy.
Enjoy!

Place the dip in a bowl and provide your family and friends with lots of options for dipping.

Celery sticks, carrot sticks, crackers, chips, they’re all good choices.

Sprinkle a bit of the reserved tomatoes, bacon and lettuce on top prior to serving for decoration.

I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to hear your comments in the section below.

    We like the simple dip of a block of cream cheese, cocktail sauce and can of crab meat. Also like boiled/steamed shrimp as an appetizer. Guess we just like anything seafood lol. Really enjoy Taste of Southern, keep up the good work.

  2. Lisa Osborne says:

    I usually go with a warm spinach and artichoke dip or a warm cheese dip. Adding your BLT dip to the line up sounds like a perfect option as well. Thank you for sharing and for the excellent work you do keeping us updated with the newsletters. Really enjoy reading them.

  3. Katie Phelps says:

    Hi Steve,
    I always enjoy your letters and reading your recipes.Keep up the good work.This BLT Dip sounds mighty tasty.My favorite dip Tostitos Salsa Con Queso(Medium)and chips.
    P.S. I enjoy the photos you post of the places you shop, and visit too.
    Thank you and God Bless you.

  4. Deb says:

    Hi Steve! Looks like another great recipe! I’ve never heard of BLT dip. I guess our go-to recipe would be my daughter’s homemade salsa and tortilla chips.

    But we also just served a “Everything Bagel Cheese Ball” (it was a new recipe for us). You can find it here: http://thissillygirlslife.com/2015/01/everything-cheese-ball-recipe-plus-party-planning-tips/2/

  5. carolyn thomas says:

    Favorite appetizer, a sliver of Italian ham smeared with cream cheese rolled around a wedge of dill pickle. How easy is that?

  6. Jennifer A. says:

    I haven’t seen BLT Dip in forever-not even a picture! Brings back some delicious memories – thank you. At our house the go to is Nachos with Salsa and Guacamole.

  7. Maria F. says:

    Rotel cheese dip and creamy salsa dip are my quick go to’s.
    Chopped onions, bell peppers, ground beef or sausage, Velveeta, and cheeses in the crock pot, for the Rotel dip.
    Cream cheese, and a jar of pace picante, whipped with a hand mixer, for the creamy salsa dip.
    I serve both with tortilla chips. I usually buy mine from Uncle Julio’s or Chuy’s.

  8. Hope Hill says:

    Hi from Houston my home city! No super bowl tickets but plan to watch from home with a small spread of snacks. My favorite dip is con quest dip with jalapeno poppers, chips, flauntas and quesadillas. But since I have southern roots we are also having Texas caviar, fried chicken bites and TX toast with pepper cream gravy and meatballs with spicy BBQ sauce. We are also having Philly cheese steak bites and Texas chili For dessert there will be mini football brownies. I don’t think anyone will leave hungry.

  9. Ruth Swindle says:

    We love smoked salmon, but it can be expensive for a crowd. I take a large can of salmon, drained, skinned and deboned, 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, dried dill, and liquid smoke to taste. Mix and refrigerate, preferably the day before. Take out of the fridge and bring to room temperature before serving. I don’t have to worry about saving leftovers.

  10. LINDA SMITH says:

    I always love French Dip with chips for the Super Bowl. Also a good Pizza is nice.

  11. Shirley says:

    Smoked salmon dip is one of my favorites. Looking forward to trying your BLT dip. Anything with bacon is good!

  12. Sandra says:

    I make my favorite a hot onion cheese dip. It’s always a big hit !!

  13. Mark Miller says:

    Looks great! Love to see real mayonnaise being used!
    Our go to dip is quick, easy and good. I call it mud dip. Two cups of left over chilli or a can of your favorite chilli and one block of cream cheese. Cook in the microwave for a minute and a half. Add 1/4 teaspoon of pepper 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and a 1/4 teaspoon of chilly powder. Mix it really good, cook for another two minutes. Sprinkle shredded cheddar over the top and start dunking the tortillas or pigs in a blanket or crackers or whatever you might have.
    Love your site! It takes me back home from the rat race!
    Have a blessed day and see ya next month.

  14. Bobby Gibson says:

    How about sharing that Chicken Pastry recipe, that you got to sample at the church, made my mouth salivate just looking at it. 7 layer dip is my staple when company is expected.

    • Donna Pike says:

      Hey Bobby,
      the recipe for the chicken pastry is on Steve’s website, it looks absolutely like comfort food to me! Check it out undr Main Dishes, Chicken. I am going to give it a try.

  15. Laura says:

    Crockpot Crab and Cheese dip

    1 lb of American cheese, chunked (I use Velvetta)
    1/2 lb of fresh, cooked crab, drained if necessary (I use the real thing)
    Dash of Tabasco sauce
    Tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies

    Using a small crockpot, add the chunked cheese and melt, stirring occasionally. When cheese is melted, add in the crab and Tabasco, stirring gently. Serve with tortilla chips. I also like celery sticks and cucumber slices. This dip is fabulous served on tomato slices! Enjoy, there won’t be anything left!

  16. mary bradley says:

    Rumaki

  17. One of my favorite dips that I started at our favorite Mexican restaurant is to order a side of sour cream and pour their fresh chunky salsa into it and mix it all up.

WHEN YOU HAVE THEM ALL WRAPPED PLACE IN A DEEP COOKIE SHEET. MIX CATSUP, BROWN SUGAR, A LITTLE SMOKE FLAVOR, COAT BACON AND CHESTNUT, BAKE IN 375* OVEN ABOUT 20 MIN UNTIL BACON IS CRISPY. DO NOT LET CATSUP MIXTURE GET ON TOOTHPICK OR YOU WILL HAVE A HOT STICKY MESS, ON YOUR FINGERS WHEN YOU TRY TO EAT.

We fill a punch bowl with them and they are gone in about 20 minutes.

  53. Alicia Day says:

  54. Clara says:

    This dip looks good. I have a favorite dip that is quick to throw together. Softened cream cheese, a tad of milk, and grated onion to taste (at least 1 t). It’s great at room temperature with chips or Fritos. Very simple and delicious.

  56. Gina Price says:

    Hey Steve ! Yum yum yum ! Can’t wait to try your dip ! Love your recipes, travels, and newsletter !
    Our fav dip is to fry up a lb of mild (crumbled) sausage, drain well.. add 1 block of cream cheese and a can of RoTel, stir well, and serve warm. Frito scoops or tortilla chips, and no leftovers ! Happy New Year everyone!

  57. Dianne Mullinix says:

    Holy cow, three of my favorite things in one dip: Duke’s mayo, cream cheese and sour cream. And the bacon is just the cherry on top. I think this may be my new favorite dip. 🙂 Before reading this, my go-to dip was spinach artichoke.

  58. Maggie says:

    My favorite dip is cream cheese, bacon & horseradish dip…but that might change after I try this BLT dip! 🙂

  59. Retha McLamb says:

    Hi Steve—Your dip sounds wonderful-(BACON–Who can go wrong???)–My favorite appetizer is—HAM CHEESE BALL- 2–(8 oz pkg)–cream cheese(softened)–5-6–(2 oz pkg)–Budding Honey Ham–chopped in food processor–about 3-4 “green” onions–(the whole onion) chopped in food processor—I like to chop the ham and onions separately.—Put all this in a bowl and add a “good dash” of worcestershire sauce–Mix all together and roll into a ball…Garnish with some of the (green part) of the “cut up” onion. Refrigerator overnight….*Add onion + or – to your taste*—-I have also made this and added chunk crab meat in place of the ham….Try it and ENJOY!!!!! FYI—the 2 oz.ham is .49 cent at Wal Mart.

  60. Carol Anne E. says:

    I love to make my Reuben Dip. I serve it hot in a crock pot and it has chopped corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing. I serve it with mini cocktail rye bread dippers and it’s delicious! It’s always a hit! I think I’ll serve it for the game and will make this BLT dip as well. Looks like it’ll be my new favorite! Yum!

  61. Sue Vanhook says:

  71. Kathleen says:

  72. libby rouse says:

    our favorite appetizer is pigs in a blanket, never any left!

  73. Sandra Lowry says:

    Hi Steve, This sounds delicious! Will definitely give it a try. One of my family’s favorite appetizer/snack also includes bacon and are very easy to make. Just wrap a 1/2 slice of bacon around a club cracker. Place on a baking sheet in 250 degree oven for 2 hours. All that wonderful bacon grease soaks into the crackers! (May be too much for some people so you can bake them on a rack on the baking sheet.) My daughter’s last name is Carter and she makes these so often that our family calls them Carter Crackers! Like your BLT dip,they include bacon-enough said!

  74. Joyce Anderes says:

    My favorite dip is onion made with Lipton’s Onion Soup mix.

  75. Chele B says:

    My favorite veggie dip is ranch. My favorite sweet/dessert dip is toffee dip….cream cheese, brown sugar and toffee bits. Yumm!

  76. Ruby Lewis says:

    My favorite dip is tuna pate. 2 cans solid white tuna, 2 blocks cream cheese, 1 small onion diced, 1 heaping tablespoon ketchup…mix together and serve with party breads or chips.

  77. Autumn Arthur says:

    I agree with Angie, I usually like to stick with the veggie tray and ranch dip. Everyone loves it and they’re readily available for purchase at the grocery store! 🙂

  78. This dip looks wonderful I know iam going to try it. Thanks for the great recipes, and just for the record we like bacon to.
    God bless, have a great week

  79. jadip says:

    Pigs in a blanket are our favorite appetizer. Dipped in mustard. Yum!

  80. Cheryl says:

    Dried beef mixed with cream cheese and scallions with crackers.

  81. Kathryn Griffith says:

    Hot spinach dip

  82. David W says:

    My current favorite dip is a light ranch similar to Litehouse.

  83. Beverly says:

    My favorite dip is a homemade salsa that uses the Ball Canning Salsa Mix. A great thing to make when you have too many summer tomatoes to eat. You can freeze it or can it when tomatoes are in season. Very simple to make. Recipe is on the package.

  84. Catherine says:

    Shrimp ball consists of 1 can drained baby shrimp mixed with cream cheese and seasonings, then rolled in another drained can of baby shrimp. Served with zesty cocktail sauce poured over top, and favorite crackers. A favorite of all my friends.

  85. Terresa Wood says:

    This dip sure looks yummy. I usually do the cream cheese with dried beef dip. I know, boring.

  86. Kesha says:

    Yummy looking dip! My favorite dip is sausage cheese dip and cheese straws!

  87. Bob P says:

    Anything BLT is delicious and this looks like one that will be made this weekend… simple and quick but huge on flavor. THX

  88. Jim Hall says:

    Steve, it sounds delicious & I look forward to making a batch!

    I love to make char-grilled oysters for my events but always get stuck @ the grill for way too long : )

  89. Gail Paschal says:

    The pineapple cream cheese ball has been a favorite for many years. We added a Taco Dip a few years ago. I will try the BLT this weekend!

  90. Angie Nguyen says:

    Veggie tray with creamy ranch dip. There are generally so many sweets at gatherings that I feel like this balances things out a bit.

  91. Kathy B says:

    I have two favorite dips – a crab and brie dip I got from a local restaurant and a spicy gumbo dip I got on another food blog.

    I’ve never heard of a dip with lettuce in it so I might have to try this.

  92. Bill Blake says:

    I’ll definitely be trying this recipe. Typically, my go-to dip for special events is a buffalo chicken dip. For everyday snacking, I enjoy whipping up a batch of guacamole.

    This dip looks delicious! I am looking forward to trying it. The addition of the lettuce intrigues me!
    One of my favorite dips is a spicy corn dip. Cream cheese, frozen corn, jalapeños, garlic….throw it all in the crockpot and serve it with some tortilla chips or Tostitos scoops! Yum!!!
    Thanks Steve!

    Our favorite go to dip is Liptons onion dip. Favorite appetizer is cream cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped mini peppers…yum!

    Spinach artichoke dip is my absolute favorite (but your BLT dip just might be a close second).
