5 Minute Million Dollar Dip

5 Million Dollar Dip is only 5 ingredients and they don’t call it million dollar dip for nothing!  It is so deliciously addicting and will be the biggest hit wherever it goes! 


Can I just say how much I love my readers and fans?  I hope you know how much I appreciate all of your amazing comments and support in keeping this blog going.  I especially love when readers send me messages and recipes that they want me to try.  This recipe was sent to me from a reader telling me that I have to try it!

With it being only 5 ingredients and taking 5 minutes to make, I couldn’t wait to make it for our football party!


This dip has mayonnaise, green onions, cheddar cheese, and bacon bits.  If you are looking to substitute the mayonnaise you can use greek yogurt, or even sour cream, but the mayonnaise is a key ingredient in bringing this dip all together.  I loved all of the ingredients in this dip and the slivered almonds were my favorite part!  They added the perfect crunch to this dip.

It is a MUST make dip for your next football party or gathering.  Everyone won’t be able to get enough of it!  You will quickly see why it is called a Million Dollar Dip!

  1. Sure I’m gonna try one now! This ones easy to make and ingredients are accessible!

  2. so how much does this dip create. I am going to our pastors small wedding reception at the church and am bringing a cheese ball with crackers might have to make this along with it as another dish. .

  3. hey girl this looks so yummy! I love all kinds of dips!

  4. This looks so delicious. Thanks for all the great recipes.

  5. This looks delish! Can’t wait to try it! Was wondering if you used regular mayo or MW?

  6. This sounds amazing! Wonder what half mayo half sour cream would be like in it? Maybe some finely chopped jalapeño for a little kick? Am going to try this for sure.

  7. Linda Iverson says:

    When first made this tasted flat & salty! After chilling overnight, it was Delicious! Put it out for a ball game & it went FIRST & FAST! Will definitely be making it again!!

  8. Could this be made with plain greek yogurt?

  9. This called for way too much onion. It was overpowering.

  10. This dip looks yummy! I need to make it nut-free though, due to allergies. Do you have a suggestion of a substitute for the almonds or would you just omit them?

  11. I just made it so now I have to wait, lol. I am so looking forward to serving this while watching the game tomorrow. Thanks so much!

  12. There’s no seasoning of any kind?

  13. Clare Cotton says:

    Looks really delicious!!! (just an fyi – it’s addictive, not addicting – addict is a noun rather than a verb.)

    • Actually, addict can be a verb and addicting can act as the participle adjective of the verb “to addict”, just as charming and insulting are the participle adjectives of the verbs to charm and to insult. I don’t think anyone would say that you can’t describe a person as charming or a statement as insulting, and similarly it is OK to describe a recipe as addicting.

  14. I love this dip but feel like 5 green onions was too much. Next time using 2 or 3. I used leftover extra crispy bacon from breakfast which is always the way to go. Added a few dashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce. I think some diced jalapeños would be a great addition to this. Will make this again and again!

  15. I subbed cream cheese for the mayo and it was really good.

  16. Thanks for the great recipe! Looking forward to making it!

  17. I make this all the time. I use fewer onions and I don’t use almonds. It’s so quick to put together and so yummy!!

  18. sandy morrow says:

    I’m going to make this dip for an upcoming football game and I’m going t add some garlic salt and some jalepenos, for kick.

  19. This looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it.

  20. This is just how I roll but this is AMAZING as a spread on a hot grilled chicken sandwich or a burger……

  21. Would this be a good dish to warm up or best served cold?

  22. I’ve made this for years – I only use Hellman’s mayo and real crumbled bacon! It’s great as a cold dip but also makes the most AMAZING stuffed mushrooms! Has an entirely different taste warmed up. We also add it to scrambled eggs!! So good!!!!!

  23. I made this for a party but added a few extra ingredients. Chopped Jalapeños, corn and diced water chestnuts. It went so fast!!!! Made it again as a filling for tea sandwiches (because it’s phenomenal on bread too😍) for a girls outing, it was the first thing to be completely consumed!!!!
    Seems best when allowed to be refrigerated overnight.
    The best!!!!

  24. I made it last night, it was good but too salty. I think it was the mayo I used, it had 125mg of sodium in it. Can I fix this by adding some sour cream or cream cheese? Or should I toss it and start over?

  25. This was ok, not great. I ended up adding a little salt and pepper and then some garlic powder. I think the mayo is the problem. I’ll probably use cream cheese if I try it again.

  26. Could chopped pecans be used instead of slivered almonds?

  27. I made this as a Christmas Eve appetizer and it was a huge hit. We had the leftovers on toast the next day and it was awesome that way too. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe.

  28. Made this but omitted the almond slivers and green onions due to not having any. I also did not chill for 2 hours. Tried it 1st with sour cream using small amt of ingredients but it wasn’t good. Then tried it with the mayo, what a big difference, I doubled the recipe. It was a hit, had none left.

  29. I liked it cold…but the next day I heated some up and thought it was more like a Two Million Dollar Dip!! To me, it tastes way better heated up!

  30. I love cooking

  31. J, Elizabeth Cornell says:

    This looks really good.
    Would either Betty Crocker’s Bac-Os or Oscar Mayer’s turkey bacon be just as good in this good in this?

  32. I made this for a football event…there was so much food there…but this was one that everyone commented on…they couldn’t figure out the crunch…I noticed on the video that sliced almonds were used…but I used the slivered as the recipe requested…I thought the dip was a bit on the salty side…but no one else thought so…its also delicious warmed up …but I noticed it developed a pool of grease…this made a beautiful presentation…

  33. Michelle Reynolds says:

    What about adding diced chicken and a little more mayo to this?

  34. Heidi Guibord says:

    A friend made this and it was absolutely amazing !! I’m not a big onion fan but I was surprised !!! I cant wait to try it this weekend for super

  35. Sharon Ledson says:

    Amazing and easy dip. Will definitely make a go to dip.

  36. Dip! Yum! I think we’re going to have this for supper tonight!

  37. NEVER EVER try to substitute REAL Mayonnaise with Miracle whip – there is a
    BIG difference in taste

  38. I just made this for a potluck Oscar party tonight. I made it per the recipe, refrigerated it and then tasted it. It needed some salt, pepper and garlic powder and now it’s perfect! I will make this again!

  39. The best dip, made it for a party gone in 1/2 hr

  40. Jeannie B. says:

    I don’t like much salt do to medications I take, what can be added to absorb the salt? Also I’d probably heat mine up! Can’t wait to try it!!!

  41. Angie Richard says:

    I think it’s delicious! I’d love to try cream cheese instead of mayo. As far as the green onions I love the amount bit I’m from Louisiana where green onions are widely used. Thanks!

  42. My mom served this at a party and now I’m addicted. I don’t find the onions overpowering at all.
