Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"Formerly known as 'Neiman Marcus dip,' this million dollar dip tastes just like it sounds. I've had more than a few cheesy dips in my day, but this is by far the richest and most addictive one yet. And it's much cheaper than the name suggests! Served with crackers and garnished with green onions and bacon, this dip is sure to be a huge hit at your next party."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Toast almonds in a saucepan over medium heat until lightly golden.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crispy and evenly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and cool slightly before chopping into bits.
  3. Combine mayonnaise and Cheddar cheese in a mixing bowl. Toss in bacon, green onions, almonds, and cayenne. Stir with a spatula until combined. Wrap and chill in the fridge at least 1 hour before transferring to a serving bowl.

Footnotes

  • Chef's Note:
  • Use a sharp knife for the green onions so they taste better. This is because if you use a dull knife on onions, you'll be crushing instead of cutting, which releases volatile sulfuric compounds and makes the flavor much harsher.

I made this dip the night before my event.it is very rich and very good!

Taste really good but it is very rich. I turned the leftover dip into a macaroni salad by adding only chicken and pasta because it was already flavorful, it was excellent.

We make this dip all.the.time! Especially when hosting. Our guests always rave about it. It's fairly simple to make and DELICIOUS. We usually make it the night before a party and it a makes for ...

Always a crowd pleaser

I am usually a big fan of anything Chef John makes but this dip just didn't do anything for me. I made it for a New Year's Eve party and there was more of this left over than anything else. I...

We scarfed it down! This makes a large serving, but it wasn't enough! Will definitely make it again

It’s great. If it is too rich, substitute some of the mayo for sour cream. I like 1 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream. I also like to add extra toasted almonds and bacon.
