Freezer-Friendly Bacon-Broccoli-Cheese Dip

By Cindy Rahe
Created January 10, 2017
No offense, baked Brie, but this bacon-broccoli-cheese dip has stolen our hearts. Even better? You can make it ahead, freeze and bake when company comes!

At any gathering where dips are on the table, I find that the ones that are served warm and contain copious amounts of cheese are everyone’s favorite. I mean, who can resist a molten lake of bubbling cheese, dotted with flavorful bits piled high on a buttery cracker? In this case, the flavorful bits are chunks of tender broccoli and crunchy bites of salty bacon enrobed in luscious, melted cheese. It’s no wonder it’s the star of the party! 

This dip couldn’t be easier to make. It begins with a bag of Green Giant Steamers Broccoli and Cheese Sauce.


The cooked saucy broccoli gets a rough chop (I like to use kitchen shears for this task) before combining with classic melty-cheese-dip ingredients and crispy bacon crumbles. (You’ll find the complete recipe below!)


After that, the dip is nestled in a baking dish and sent off to the oven for 20 minutes before it comes out hot and bubbling and just begging to top off a cracker.


Best part about this dip is that it freezes like a dream! You can divide the unbaked mixture into two ovenproof baking dishes and freeze, wrapped well in foil, for up to 1 month. Just defrost overnight in the refrigerator before baking, and you’ll have a homemade app ready in minutes.
