Million Dollar Dip

So how’s everyone doing on their New Year’s resolutions? If this blog is any indication, me? Probably not so great. But hey, it was the Super Bowl last week and I made this dip…

This is the dip of many names: ABC (almond, bacon, cheddar), Neiman Marcus Dip, Million Dollar Dip, One Million Dollar Dip. Well, you get the idea.

What IS it? A handful of ingredients that meld together into one glorious taste explosion. The one secret? It’s not really good the first day. It’s seriously mediocre. Million Dollar Dip shines the next day when everything comes together in some kind of magical alchemy.

This dip is mayo based, but I add a touch of cream cheese to add just a little substance. I like to cook up bacon for this, but in a pinch you could use bacon bits – the real ones, or the precooked bacon.

Any holiday week is likely to have great sales, and the Super Bowl is no exception – and if you’re into indulging in chips, crackers, and all the accompaniments that go right along with the biggest game day ever, it’s a great time to buy and stock up. Me, I’m getting back to my healthy eating plan…maybe after I make something sweet for Valentine’s day, lol!

  2. It is rugby season and I have to make this! I will remember to make it the day before, how funny about the flavors! Thank you for bringing this to Fiesta Friday! 🙂 Have a lovely rest of the week!

    1. I wish I weren’t American so I could say moorish!!! I think that is the BEST word in the world. Although I love the word serendipitous, too, which I never seem to be able to work gracefully into a conversation…And thanks! 🙂

  3. Mollie –you are the best! I love your tips– stocking up at Super Bowl sales– and regrowing those green onions! ANd- the dip looks terrific– really ready for a party! Love your blog. xox

  4. That does look amazing. Is it bad that I’m waiting until after Valentine’s Day to start my New Years resolutions? I mean, that’s a thing, right?! Either way, I have a few more days for dip!

    1. lol! Whatcha making for Valentine’s? I’m gonna have to stop by and see!!! I’m playing around with the idea of raspberry filled cupcakes with white chocolate frosting. I think you have the white chocolate buttercream recipe – mind if I borrow it? 🙂 It has been haunting me ever since I saw it on your blog!!

  5. We plant the ends of our green onions in the top of our upside down tomato planters each year. Fresh green onion all spring/summer/fall long! I’ve never thought to grow them indoors that way, thanks! p.s. dip looks super yummy!

      1. I think we’ve done them for four or five years. We’ve had issues with our new sprinkler system at our new house with them the past couple of years, so hubby is debating whether to put them in ground planters this year and put in a drip system. But yes, they are great because you don’t get ground slugs/insects on them. I think we’ll be starting our tomato seeds this weekend! My hubby built a greenhouse with UV lights and a heat lamp in our garage. 🙂

        1. Wow, how exciting!! I can barely keep the houseplants alive these days…we’ll go with starter plants! I admire your energy, though! I have an absolute fear of slugs and worms…uggghhh. We don’t have too many slugs either in SD or in MN.

    1. You have no idea how much you just made me laugh because the other day I was downstairs playing with the dogs & went up at noon to make the folks dinner. They had fixed their own and my dad was very happily eating some leftover spaghetti and my stepmom had put a huge blob of this dip on her plate and was eating it with a fork. She said, “This is delicious!” I don’t know what she thought it was, lol, but I know she didn’t have any idea it was dip!

      When I’m at home and not at my folks (my kids are gone) I’ll happily just nosh on food and eat whatever, whenever…soup for breakfast? Why not. Dip for dinner – oh yeah!! 🙂

    1. Just plain water – you’ll want to change it out every couple of days. The green onions will grow well a couple of times but will eventually get weaker and will have to be replaced. Keep them in a sunny window..
