  1. I love BLT dip and think it would make a good bagel spread or sandwich! I will have to use the leftovers in this manner next time.

  2. Oh man! This sounds delicious. Of course, I’m not sure I’d ever have leftovers of that dip… I’d have to make a new batch lol

  3. Wow, these look mighty tasty. Perfect for game day noshing.But i’m not going to wait until the weekend to make them. 🙂

  4. What an interesting recipe combining so many different flavors. You did a great job on your food photos, too.

  5. Wow, that looks so good. I’d love prepare some of these sandwiches for my family on game day. That cheese sounds amazing.

  6. This looks like an amazing sandwich. I wish i could try it right now. I will have to make some tomorrow for lunch.

  7. What a wonderful idea. I love dips, but often have some left over after parties. Making them into grilled cheese is such a great idea.

  8. I would never have thought to make a BLT with the creamy dip.. This looks so mouth watering, I could eat 2 or 3 of these.

  9. This looks out of control good! I am a bacon lover (the main reason I can never last as a vegetarian) and a BLT in dip form just looks heavenly!

  10. Oh my goodness, what I wouldn’t give to have one of these right now! My stomach’s grumbling and I was just getting ready to head into the kitchen. I think I’m going to have to pull out and thaw some BACON! 🙂

  11. OK that is just YUM! Totally healthy for you too right?! I am going to say it is since it has tomato in it.;)

  12. yummmmmy! This looks so good! I love the idea of using dip in a sandwich! I’ve never done that before but it’s so creative.

    1. I’ve turned dip into sandwiches a few times now with great success – it’s definitely something I’m going to keep experimenting with!

  13. Wow this looks delicious. I probably should have ate lunch before clicking onto this but now I need to make something like this myself, looks so good!
