Last month sometime Dave sent me a sample of J&D’s Bacon Ranch Dressing and Dip Mix. He told me that this was one of their best ideas and it tasted amazing. For some reason I took me weeks to finally go to the store and buy the two things I needed to make it, sour cream and Mayonnaise. It may seem simple but I never use sour cream or Mayonnaise (other than Baconnaise), so I kept forgetting to buy them every time I went to the store.
Well last night I finally got everything I needed to make the Bacon Ranch Dip. If you made dips from a packet before you know what to do here. Whip everything together in a bowl and let it sit for 2 hours. The dressing is just as simple but it uses buttermilk.
After the two hours I grabbed a bag of Ruffles and starting dipping. The first bit was intense; you tasted the normal dip/dressing flavor first then the smoky flavor creeps in later. Sean called it a nuclear explosion of bacon in your mouth. I would have to agree.
What makes this so amazing is you just donâ€™t taste smoke, you also taste meat. Not sure how they did it since its vegetarian, but you really canâ€™t tell. Most bacon flavored products only capture the smoky flavors and miss the meat flavors.
If youâ€™re a bacon lover or youâ€™re going to a party where bacon lovers will be, then you need to try J&Dâ€™s Bacon Ranch. Itâ€™s only 2.99 for a one pack, which is the going rate for dip mixes. If you make the dip it will make about 2 cups of heaven. Which should be enough for normal party goes. If youâ€™re making it for bacon lovers you better make a double batch. Sean and I couldnâ€™t stop eating it once we started.
Dave, you where right this is the best bacon product ever (other than real bacon).
