Hot Corn and Bacon Dip - super cheesy hot corn dip with bacon will make you reach for more and more! You need to make this for your next game day!
This blog should be called "Cheesy and Donuts". That pretty much sums up what has been going on here recently. My Hubby is responsible for the cheese and the donuts may or may not be my obsession. I am not admitting to anything. Oh, wait. I did that already.
But who is complaining? It's all about balance, right? You got sweet and you got savory - both decadent and absolutely delicious. Everybody wins!
And the cheese! Just look at that cheese! So ooey and gooey that when you pull it away with a chip, you start to open your mouth long before you take the bite!
It's pretty much mandatory that every dip should have cheese in it. Because cheese makes everything better. This bread, this bread and soon to come a soup (!!!) are the proof. It magically turns a dish into a star. Kind of like chocolate in desserts. Add it and all of a sudden, everyone is reaching for more!
Last Saturday, we shared a Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip. This is it's hot version. Two versions - both fantastic! It's honestly hard to choose one over the other. They are both so good!
In this hot version, I skipped the Ranch mix so you can enjoy the bacon action. Sometimes Ranch tends to overpower a dish. It seemed so when we baked this for the first time.
You will love how easy this dip is to throw together. Just mix all of the ingredients, place in a oven safe dish (I used a mini cast iron baker) and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. If you want to achieve the brown spots like we did, just place the dish under a broiler set on low setting and broil for 2 to 3 minutes. That's it! So easy and so satisfying! Enjoy, friends!

What size of canned corn or if frozen corn, how many cups?
Oh man! I wish I had all the ingredients for this because it would be perfect to make for tonight's football game (AKA my excuse for eating a million snacks!).
