Taste the dip and adjust the seasonings as necessary. Depending on the salt content of the bacon and cheese you use, you may want to add a pinch of kosher salt. 

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. This allows the flavors to. meld and the dip to thicken slightly.

Transfer the dip to a serving bowl on a platter. Place dippers around the bowl of dip and garnish the dip with additional green onions and bacon bits for a pretty presentation.

Serving Suggestions

This party favorite dip recipe, or Super Bowl football food, is best served with an assortment of dipping options. I like to put the million dollar dip inside a serving bowl on a large platter, and then put the dipping options all around the bowl. Garnish the dip with some fresh sliced green onions and additional bacon bits for a pretty presentation. Here are some ideas of what to serve with this perfect appetizer recipe! Pick your faves or find some new ones you like. 

  • Favorite Crackers – Wheat Thins, Triscuits, Ritz Crackers (my family’s favorite), Club Crackers, etc. 
  • Favorite Chips – Ruffles, Lays potato chips, or tortilla chips are all great options. 
  • Pita Chips
  • Bagel Chips
  • Fresh Vegetables – Carrot sticks or celery sticks are great low-carb options. 
  • Toasted Baguette Slices

How To Store Leftover Dip

Store any leftover dip inside an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 2-3 days. Give the chilled leftover dip a good stir to combine everything together again before serving or eating.

Tips For Making Creamy & Cheesy Million Dollar Dip

  • Chill Time : For the best flavor make sure to allow enough time for the dip to chill in the fridge before serving. 
  • Cheese : Cheddar cheese is an excellent choice but you can also use Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, or Swiss cheese instead. Or use two different kinds of cheeses instead of all cheddar. You can also use mild, medium, or sharp cheddar cheese. 
  • Lighten It Up : Use light or reduced-fat version of cream cheese and mayo if wanted. 
  • Shred Your Own Cheese : My #1 tip! Use a box cheese grater to shred the cheese yourself from a block of cheese. 
  • Parmesan Cheese : For the best taste shred or grate the parmesan cheese from a wedge of fresh parmesan cheese. I don’t recommend using the cheaper, shelf-stable parmesan cheese as it is more salty. There are some pre-shredded refrigerated parmesan cheeses that would work well in this recipe.
