Neiman Marcus Dip

I have made this dip several times over the last couple of months. Not only is it super easy to make, it makes a ton and is a huge crowd-pleaser. You can also make it a day in advance, so it's a great option when you are short on time. You can of course cook and chop your own bacon, but with so many flavors mixed in, you can't really tell the difference, so I just use the jarred stuff (real bacon, not bits!). This is supposedly called Neiman Marcus dip because it is so "rich," which it is. The original recipe calls for all mayo, but I found that to be too thick and gloopy, so I cut it with a little sour cream. Beware, if you have leftovers after your party, you will not be able to stop eating this stuff, it's addicting! 

  • 6 green onions, chopped 
  • 8 oz (1 bag) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 jar Hormel Real Bacon Bits 
  • 1 package (1/2 cup) slivered almonds, toasted
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 


To toast almonds: place almonds in small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, careful not to burn. Do not walk away, they will burn quickly. You will then have to start over because there is no saving burnt nuts! (ha) 

Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, green onions and almonds. Season with salt and pepper and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to let the flavors meld. As mentioned above, this will keep well in the fridge for a few days.

Serve with club crackers.
