Yup.. Just like the Sammich!
This dip is fun and easy to make, perfect, quick dish to bring to a party or luncheon at work.
It literally tastes just like the sandwich!
Let's get cookin'!
Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Dip
1 Head of Lettuce
1 lb of bacon or more... you can never have too much Bacon
2 cups mayonnaise
2 8oz container of Sour Cream
A pinch of Salt
A dash of Pepper
As much shredded Mozzarella as you like
Trifle Dish or a head of lettuce to plate the dip
First things first.
Go ahead and start frying up your bacon. You have a whole pound so it will take a bit of time.
Get it on the skillet and start the poppin' n sizzlin'
While your piggies are in the skillet
Take the Head of lettuce and shred it into very small bite size pieces, remember this is a dip, to fit on a chip or pita bread, not a salad!
I ended up shredding the whole head before I knew it. If you are going to use the entire head you will have to Double all of your ingredients!
Slice and dice that whole tomato.
Remember Small pieces you could scoop up in a chip
I took the seeds out but that is personal preference.
At this point you may leave your veggies to the side.
Go ahead and mix together your Mayo, Sour Cream and Mozzarella.
I had to play with the taste of the Sour Cream and Mayo. I personally like the heavy Mayo taste in this dip, so it tastes just like the sandwich.
Feel free to add more or less.
Either way you go
Make sure to mix it up very well,
you don't want pockets of just sour cream or just Mayo
Unless that is what you are going for
Then knock yourself out!
Once your bacon is finished let it rest on a plate with a napkin on it
So that it will soak up the grease.
Between you and me...
If you want to let a little bit drizzle in there
I won't say anything if you won't!
I finally got to use the Pampered Chef Slap Chopper for the bacon
I basically made fresh Bacon Bits for this dip.
Chop, Chop, Chop
Once your chopping is done
Mix ALL of your ingredients in your bowl of choice.
The Salt and Pepper are added to taste.
I saved a little bit of each ingredient to garnish the top. It made a very colorful and delicious appetizer!
Then Plate it with PLENTY of chips, pita chips, Fritos, Melba Snack, Pita Pockets. Whatever.
Simple. Cute. Festive. and probably something NO One has ever seen before.
This dip can also be made hot.

I like the idea of cramming it into cherry tomatoes as a finger food!
