My son is turning 4 and is having a bacon and lumberjacks themed birthday party. It should be great, but I am just seeking out a recipe for a bacon dip that would work with veggies and plantain chips. There's lots of dips out there, but we are dairy free which makes it much harder. Perhaps something with coconut milk or mayonnaise base? If you've tried something and would be willing to share the recipe I would be so thankful. I have googled and searched but couldn't find much. Thank you!

bacon guacamole is pretty tasty. i've never heard of a bacon dip, per say, so i have no clue how to make that.

I have in the past made a very tasty (blasphemy) SAD blt dip that consisted of 1 part cream cheese to 1 part mayo with lots of diced up tomato, crumbled crispy bacon, and shredded lettuce and cheese on top to garnish. I think this would work with the obvious modifications - drop the shredded cheese, drop the cream cheese or substitute for something similar (this is tough if you're dairy free, cashew cheese is probably one of few options), and don't be afraid of the bacon and tomatoes.

I looooovvee this recipe:
- 10 slices center cut bacon, chopped
- 8 ounces cashew "cream cheese"
- 1/2 cup baconnaise (recipe below)
- 2 rounded teaspoons prepared Dijon style mustard
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 1/2 cup smoked almonds, coarsely chopped
- 1 sweet sweet onion sliced (optional)
- butter or bacon grease (optional)
In a mixing bowl, combine cashew cheese, scallions and bacon. Slowly start to add in baconnaise until you reach the desired consistency. Top with chopped smoked almonds or cashews and more bacon. Optional: Brown up the sweet onion using the butter/bacon grease to get some caramelized onions to add on top. Serve up.
You can also put this in an oven proof bowl and warm gently. I sometimes broil the top for a bit of color.
Baconnaise: (1 cup)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp mustard (this is optional)
- 3 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup liquid bacon fat
Combine all ingredients at room temperature using a blender to desired consistency. Add in the vinegar and lemon juice slowly and test as you go for the tanginess you prefer.

I don't know if you've made cashew cheese before, but it has the consistency of a dip. I have used this recipe and like it. You could use the bacon as a topping or mix in:
Also, I don't add the nutritional yeast, and just use whatever probiotic powder I have on hand.
