Alton Brown's Bacon Horseradish Dip

I love me some Alton Brown, and this dip was no exception. While his onion dip is still my all-time favorite dip, this is another delish app that earned 2 thumbs up.

Now, if you don't care for horseradish, I would steer clear of this recipe. I like horseradish just fine, but if I could have this dip every day (of which I did eat this for 3 days), I'd be one happy diner.

Adding the chopped bacon...

  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, large diced
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream (reduced-fat is fine)
  • 3/4 cup Hellmann's mayo (full fat here)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp jarred horseradish
  • Stacy's Pita Chips (for dipping)

  1. In a cold saute pan, add the chopped bacon, turn onto medium heat and cook until the bacon is cooked all the way through (but before it gets extra crispy).
  2. Once the bacon is cooked, remove the bacon onto a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. In the same saute pan, cook the onions until soft in the bacon grease.
  4. While the onion is cooking, add and mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.
  5. Add the cooked bacon and sauteed onions.
  6. Place the dip into the fridge to allow the flavors to marry. (This step is important- it tastes much better if you let the flavors meld for at least 2-3 hours.)
Yield: approx. 4 cups
