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. Hi Alyssa. I can wait to make this dip!! Love Dips. One ?, can we freeze? Read all comments and the dip was always gone to fast. Thanx

  2. I made the dip this morning. I just tasted it and it is very salty. Is there anything I can add to take some of the salt out?

    1. Low sodium bacon, can substitute 1/3 of the mayo for sour cream, it will give a lighter~brighter flavor and still get the mayo aspect.

  3. Delicious dip and easy to make. 1/2 cup of bacon bits equaled 1/2 pound of bacon. I used 1 Cup of Mayo (with olive oil) and 1/2 cup Greek Plain Non-fat yogurt. Brought it to a gathering hosted by a former caterer from Spain. She loved it and asked for the recipe. Thanks!

  4. I just made this for “Dip Day” at work tomorrow, and after I tasted it I kept out a little to have for dinner with zucchini chips (plain dehydrated zucchini slices) and cherry tomatoes. I think it is pretty paleo/keto also, if I’m not mistaken.

    Anyways, I love it! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  5. I don’t have any almonds, so I thought about using pecans. What do you think? Also, would you toast them before putting them in to add too the crunch?

  6. I made this today (Christmas Day) to take for dinner at my cousins house. I was looking for something quick and easy. The reviews said it was great but I was doubtful – it looked kind of odd but I had all the ingredients so I gave it a go. OMG – Everyone loved it! The 14 year old teenager ate almost the whole bole! She loved it and everyone else did. This is definitely a keeper. I only have one complaint – when I got home and went to check the recipe to put in my recipe file I couldn’t find it – I couldn’t find it under appetizers – or did I just miss it? Either way, it’s a 5 star keeper for me!

  7. This dip is so yummy! I had the original recipe at a friend’s house. Today I made it myself but changed the almonds to water chestnuts sliced into sticks( my daughter has a nut allergy). The result was excellent! Still has a crunch from the water chestnuts. We all loved it and so easy to make.

    1. Hi Ellen!

      Thanks for the comments and feedback. I am so happy that you loved the dip. It is one of my favorites. I am glad that you were able to make a substitution that fits your daughters needs. Thanks for following along! xoxo

    1. There are about 8 to 10 servings but will feed a medium to larger crowd especially if there are other appetizers there.
      I like to use myfitnesspal.com or skinny taste.com for any nutritional information. Hope that helps you find what you are looking for. XOXO

  8. Love this dip….positively addicting! I made mine with 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream and chopped up real bacon. Definitely make it the night before if you can to allow flavors to meld.

  9. So ADDICTING! I like to serve it to myself….with a spoon.

    Every time I take it somewhere I am asked for the recipe.
    Thank you thank you for this delicious, easy recipe that uses simple ingredients that I always have on hand.

  10. I made this today for a birthday party tomorrow. I used Mayo made from Olive oil and cut with some sour cream. I’m hoping the flavors blend overnight, when I first sampled it was really salty with a heavy Mayo taste. Any idea on how to dilute; I’m lenient in bringing this tomorrow.

  11. Hi Alyssa, put one half teaspoon cayenne pepper in your million dollar dip and taste the amazing WOW in mouth! Deliciously amazing.

    I love any dip with cheese, bacon and green onions! Yum, if I calculate correctly off the top of my head I think this would be about 4 cups dip divided by 12 people equals about 5 TBSP or ⅓ c dip per person. That should be plenty when serving with other apps/ meal etc? I’m thinking tailgating!! Thanks Katie! I love the recipe.

  13. How much does this make? I am hosting a party for around 150 people and need to know how many times would I need to make it for that quantity. I will be serving this with other appetizer foods too.

    1. I actually wouldn’t make it too big if you are making other appetizers. This will feed about 10 to 15 people munching on it throughout one night. You can triple it or quadruple it and have enough. Not everyone will eat it and those that do won’t make it into a meal, especially if you have other appetizers going on.

  14. This sounds delicious and so simple to make; however, the calories per serving sounds very high. Is that accurate…3730 per serving?

  15. 4 stars
    This recipe is similar to one I make but we use Gouda cheese and spread it on French bread and stick in the oven under broiler for a few minutes until a golden bubbly! My family goes NUTS for it!
