Just take a look at my Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip or the Jalapeno Popper Dip and you will see what I mean.

What you need for this Cracker Dip recipe

As you may expect, you don’t need a lot of ingredients to treat yourself to this dip.

Just make sure you have the following in your fridge or your pantry:

How to make Crack Dip

In a skillet, heat oil until it is hot. Add vegan bacon bits and fry them until they are golden and lightly browned. This will take around 4 minutes. Switch the heat off, but leave the skillet on the warmed stove.

Next in a bowl combine step-by-step vegan cream cheese, mayo, bacon, and cheddar, the ranch seasoning, and scallions. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy immediately or put in the fridge with a lid on top for later.

This makes such an amazing dip for potlucks or get togethers, but is filling enough for dinner, lunch or even meal prep.

Finally mixing with fresh scallions completes the Crack Dip.Variations

What makes this recipe so great is how easy it is to make variation of it.

Just think about using different herbs, or different vetegables. My suggestions are bell pepper, onions, corn, pickles, or tomatoes.

Just be creative and play around with it!

Can I freeze this?

I would say definitely not, because after thawing it will turn out crumbly and watery. This is not the texture you want for your family, friends and guests.

Make it ahead and store it in the fridge instead. It will last for 6 days with a lid on top.

Also if you need a really large amount, double or triple everything.

Delicious and easy to make: this Crack Dip is creamy, full of flavor and amazing as dip, filling enough for dinner, lunch and great to make for meal prep. A keeper that the whole family will eat and no one would ever tell it is vegan. #vegan #dairyfree #glutenfree #vegetarian #dinner #lunch #mealprep #contentednesscooking #partyfood #crackdip
