Bacon Spinach Dip Recipe – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, THM S
Since this spinach dip is low carb I have no guilt eating this deliciousness at parties and barbecues. Or just for lunch. I can’t say the same about my mom’s vegetable soup packet spinach dip in a pumpernickel bread bowl.
How to make Bacon Spinach Dip
Cook up some bacon and then mix it into a creamy combo of cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream. Add the spinach and cheese. Top and bake!

Substitutions for ingredients in Bacon Spinach Dip
You can sub in any type of shredded cheese in this recipe.
You can also sub in broccoli or cauliflower for the spinach – both are delicious! Or add chicken to make a hearty main course.
Also, if you are an artichoke fan feel free to add some for a Bacon Caesar Spinach Artichoke Dip. Now that is a mouthful of goodness. I do like spinach artichoke dip sometimes but I wasn’t feeling the artichokes today. I may add some next time.
Can I microwave this dip instead of baking?
Yes, you can microwave the dip for about 5 minutes. The only downside to microwaving is the cheese doesn’t get golden on top. But on a hot summer day that is a sacrifice, I am willing to make.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cook bacon until crisp, drain, and crumbled or chop it into small pieces.
- In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, mayo, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Mix in the spinach, half the bacon, and half the mozzarella.
- Spread in a deep dish pie plate. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and bacon on top.
- Bake at 350 until hot and bubbly. About 15 minutes.
