Creamy, tangy and full of bacon, this BLT Dip Grilled Cheese Sandwich will be your new favorite! Made with a crispy buttery buttermilk bread exterior and a melted bacon filling, this is an easy Round Two recipe for BLT Dip!
As the football season progresses and my husband has more football watching get-togethers catered by you know who I have started experimenting with how to use these snacks and make “round-two” recipes with them. This recipe was an almost no brainer for us. You’ve seen my grilled cheese recipes and how off the beaten path I go with using cream cheese instead of a hard cheese. Along the same vein as the Carrot Cake Jam Grilled Cheese I used one of my favorite game day treats, BLT Dip and turned it into the best grilled cheese sandwich you’ve ever had. I mean….c’mon…Look at that creamy cheese center filled with lots and lots of bacon. Check out the buttery crip exterior just begging you to… Yup, I went there. You wouldn’t blame me if you were here smelling the amazing mix of buttery crisp buttermilk bread, bacon and melted cream cheese and you had that sandwich staring back at you. It is even more enticing because it is SO EASY. I am sure even if you haven’t tried BLT Dip you have at least heard of it! Here is your chance, make a giant double batch of the BLT Dip Bites for your holiday parties, then take the extra (if you have any!) and make this grilled cheese sandwich with it!
- 2 cups BLT Dip
- 12 slices buttermilk bread
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter , softened
- Spread ½ a tablespoon of butter onto each slice of bread.
- Spread ⅓ of a cup of the BLT Dip onto 6 slices of bread and top with the remaining slices
- Heat a cast iron griddle or large skillet on medium-high.
- Once the pan is hot (but not smoking hot) add the sandwiches.
- Cook on medium heat (I cook them low and slow but medium works perfectly here too)
- Once the bottom is golden brown, flip carefully and cook the second side 3-5 minutes.
- Wait about 2-3 minutes before biting into the molten deliciousness.

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.
Same here! I hope you enjoy it!
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
Thanks! It really is worth saving some of the dip!
We’ve tried something like this a while back. This looks like a great idea. It looks so cheesy and good!
Wow, these look mighty tasty. Perfect for game day noshing.But i’m not going to wait until the weekend to make them. 🙂

We love making sandwiches for lunch. This recipe looks so delicious . I will have to give it a try.

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.
Thanks! That was my thinking when I made this!
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.
Well, the dip is based on the sandwich, and the sandwich is based on the dip – it’s the circle of life!
Mmmm, I’d love one of these with a big bowl of tomato soup!
You and me both!
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!
Thanks Emily! My house is fully of bacon lovers too!
My mouth is watering just looking at this sandwich. It is something my whole family would enjoy.
I hope you enjoy it!
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! 🙂
Thank you, Kimberly!
OK that is just YUM! Totally healthy for you too right?! I am going to say it is since it has tomato in it.;)
I’ll just say that yes, tomatoes are healthy! The rest of the dish – no comment!
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.
I’ve turned dip into sandwiches a few times now with great success – it’s definitely something I’m going to keep experimenting with!
This grilled cheese looks so yummy. I think you got me drooling. lol Saving this recipe as a must have!
Thanks, Stacie! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
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!
These look incredibly delicious! I think I’m going to need to make this for lunch today!
