I had planned to write this post about the delicious zucchini chips we’ve been making all week.

Buuuuut I really need to mention the delicious bacon horseradish dip we made yesterday to accompany them.

At first I was concerned that I had made too much of it.

Today though, as I was eating fresh *healthy* chips dipped into this amazing, tangy sauce, I realized that there is no such thing as too much creamy bacon or horseradish anything.

This Creamy Bacon Horseradish Dip is proof of that.

This crowd-pleasing dip gets its smoky, creamy deliciousness from crumbled bacon and smooth sour cream.

And its attitude? That’s the horseradish talking.

If you’re having a party anytime soon, or anytime at all really, you’re definitely going to want it there.

And you won’t have to worry a single moment wondering if you’ve made to much.

You’ll have a had time getting guests away from it. 

But, don’t worry about that either, it’s one heck of a great conversation starter!

It’s also a synch to whip up, although this creamy bacon horseradish dip does require a teensy bit of planning ahead for chill time.

In A Mixing Bowl, Whisk Together These Ingredients:

  • sour cream
  • mayonnaise
  • bacon
  • horseradish
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • garlic powder
  • salt & pepper

Once the mixture’s smooth, either add a lid to seal or transfer to a tupperware dish sealing tightly and refrigerate.

How To Store & Make This Dip Ahead Of Time

The dip needs the time in the fridge to set up and thicken.

You could serve it after only a couple hours, but it will be runny.

Ideally, waiting 3-4 hours will yield the thickest consistency. We want the dip to stay on the chips & veggies, not run right off.

The dip can be made ahead of time, and even left to chill overnight.

If you’re going that route though, I would wait to stir in the bacon until closer to serving. You want the bacon to retain some of it’s crispness.

Transfer the thickened, cold & creamy dip to a serving bowl of your choosing.

Top with a sprinkle of thinly sliced green onions & extra bacon bits.

The garnish is totally optional, but it does make a pretty picture on the party table.

This creamy bacon horseradish dip is just the thing the party planner in you was looking for.

Simple, savory, with the teensiest kick from the horseradish. Pair it with chips, or crisp veggies for an easy app your guests will love.

      Delicious!!!! So much better than store bought and easy to make!!! We did add a little more horseradish than what your recipe called for but we really like horseradish lol.

    1. Oh, that’s a wonderful idea! We make a sour cream horseradish sauce that we serve with roast beef/steak, but it never occurred to me to try using the dip instead. I see great things ahead…

    1. I used plain prepared horseradish, just the grated root stored in some vinegar. However, if the creamy version is what you have on hand or what you can find- you can absolutely use that. It just won’t have as much bite in the same amount called for. Taste it after incorporating, and if the dip isn’t tangy enough for you add just a tiny bit more.
