Barbecue Bacon Ranch Dip

This tasty Barbecue Bacon Ranch Dip is the perfect appetizer for holiday parties. It is a twist on a classic ranch dip, adding barbecue sauce, cheese, tomatoes and lots of bacon. I used my favorite brand of barbecue sauce for this, Sweet Baby Ray's.

Be sure to go with a sturdy cracker like wheat thins for this dip as more tender crackers will break trying to scoop the cream cheese mixture. Enjoy!

Barbecue Bacon Ranch Dip
Makes 12+ servings


  • 12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 oz package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup quality BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's original flavor)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or cheddar blend)
  • for serving: sturdy crackers such as wheat thins


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and dry ranch mix until well combined. Spread into a pie dish. Pour barbecue sauce evenly over cream cheese. 
  2. Layer with most of the crumbled bacon, reserving some for garnish. Add most of the green onion, reserving some for garnish as well. Add diced tomato and cheese. 
  3. Top with remaining bacon and green onion. Cover and let chill for flavors to come together. Allow dip to come to room temperature before serving.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
