Cheesy Bacon Spinach Dip – NFL and Keto Approved

Fall is the favorite season in our house. Not just because it (eventually) brings a reprieve from the South Texas heat. It also puts the kids back in school, let’s them return to outside play, and brings the excitement of a new football season.

This year has started off well with a loss for the New England Patriots Thursday night. (Sorry if you are a fan, you have my team’s Super Bowl 49 ring as a consolation – where’s Beast Mode?) For me, Football means friends, fun, and food. Although this year I’ll need to look a little further than the five topping deep dish pizza that I used to enjoy. This year I’m going to go big.

I don’t care who you are, a Cheesy Bacon Spinach Dip, sounds like perfect football food. (Okay, that might not work for vegetarians, but I don’t even think you could sell them on a Cheesy Tofu Spinach Dip.) I found a great recipe from the Delish website that I will amend below to drop the baguette. For the original recipe, click here. My version is included below.

Cheesy Bacon Spinach Dip


1 8-oz. block Cream Cheese, softened

1/3 cup Mayo

1/3 cup Sour Cream

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Paprika

1 16-oz. package Frozen Spinach, thawed and squeezed of water

10 slices of Bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 cup Grated Parmesan

1 cup Shredded Mozzarella


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir Stir together cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, garlic powder, and paprika until combined.
  2. Fold in spinach, cooked bacon, Parmesan, and 3/4 cup mozzarella. Transfer spinach mixture to baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella. (If mixture is very high in baking dish, place a baking sheet below dish to catch spillage.)
  3. Bake until golden and bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Eat by the scoop with pork rinds, almond crackers or my favorite, a serving spoon!

Hope you have a great kickoff to your football season (unless you’re a Green Bay fan) and as always, Go Hawks!
