Bacon and horseradish dip adds that savory bite we are all looking for in a dip or appetizer spread for crackers, pretzels, and chips.

Bacon and Horseradish dip is a longtime family favorite here at Palatable. I even make a number of versions of it, and have posted more than  one. It’s all very easy to  mix up in a food processor to get the cheese and sour cream very smooth.

The dip is very “dippable” at room temperature (which is great for ripple chips) but thickens to a cracker spreading consistency when chilled, so prepare it for your preference.

For the yield, this makes three cups which may seem like a lot but it is  much like two store bought tubs, and it goes really fast, especially if you serve it at a game-day gathering around the big screen.
