Looking for an easy dip recipe? This is it! This is definitely not one of my healthy recipes. It has a lot of our favorite indulgences! You can serve it for any of your favorite gatherings or holidays.

What is Million Dollar Dip

This dip has also been called Nieman Marcus Cheese Dip. Bacon and cheddar are popular ingredients among dip recipes. The addition of slivered almonds in this recipe is what makes it different from other dips.

Helen Corbitt worked for Nieman Marcus Zodiac restaurant years ago and later published a cookbook with a recipe similar to what you see here. The recipe used more mayo than I like, but if you love a lot of mayo flavor, feel free to add more!

It gets it’s million-dollar name because everyone loves it. It’s loaded with lots and lots of crunchy bacon (8 slices) and cheese. The combo of the two is astounding, yet simple.

How to Make the Bacon Pieces

I like to use real uncured, nitrate-free bacon in the recipe instead of something like Bacos. You will want to cook and crumble the bacon before you make the dip. I use my Air Fryer Bacon recipe to do this.

Toasted Almonds

Toasting the almonds is optional. I prefer this because it intensifies the flavor of the almonds.

How to Make Million Dollar Dip

  1. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add the slivered almonds and toast them.
  2. Add the toasted almonds, cream cheese, mayo, shredded cheddar, chopped green onions, cooked bacon, garlic powder, and salt to a large bowl and stir.
  3. Transfer the dip to a serving dish. Chill or serve at room temperature.

Ways to Use the Dip

You don’t have to eat this the traditional way. This dip works great as a stuffing! I have used it in my Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms and Keto Stuffed Chicken recipes. It’s so good!

Can You Make it Ahead?

Yes, you can make it up to a few days ahead. Store it in the fridge tightly sealed.

How Long Will it Last in the Fridge

It will last in the fridge for 3-4 days, tightly covered.

Can You Freeze It?

Because of the mayo and dairy combo, I would not freeze this dish.

I made this dip for the first time a month ago and was my husband's family impressed! Made it once again for Easter and now I am required to bring it to every family gathering. It is easy, delicious and I love how I can customize it based on each family members unique food sensitivities. Toasting the almonds definitely adds that bit of OOMPH that is needed! Thank you Brandi for your easy and tasty dip!

Needed a bomb dip for the Super Bowl...and I knew who to go to! I saw Brandi share this recipe earlier this week, and it came in her email too. Hubs did not believe something “so simple” was gonna be that great. (It is just him and I watching the game.) So you know I had to prove him wrong since Brandi has NEVER let me down. And his face when he took that first bite...I wish I had a picture! This dip is perfectly creamy, salty, cheesy, bacon-y with a nice fresh flavor from the green onion. Literally dip anything in this? It is AMAZING! Also gonna try this as a sandwhich spread tomorrow for lunch. Another recipe knocked out of the park. THANK YOU Brandi!!!

This review is long overdue!! I made this as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. Since it felt different this year, we didn’t do anything traditional. I made this and boy I’m glad I did!! I made it with crab and that took it over the top!
