Snacks & Appetizers

Million Dollar Dip

Also known as: Neiman Marcus Dip, or ABC Dip (short for almond, bacon, and cheese dip). I had heard the name Neiman Marcus Dip in the past, but I guess I had never looked at the recipe. Or maybe I did, but turned my nose up at all that mayonnaise. After making it and finding out how good it is, I knew I couldn’t be the only one that had never made it before. Which is why I’m sharing the recipe with you.

Keto-friendly Millionaire Dip

Our local Homemaker’s Association club meeting the other day included a potluck luncheon. I knew there was going to be some amazing food there, including delicious casseroles, hot sandwiches, side dishes, desserts, (and yes, there was all of that and more) so I decided to make a quick dip and serving it with Ritz Crackers.

I found the same recipe on at least a dozen blogs, and several of them had a lot of comments. What I learned is:

  • you either love this dip, or not
  • it’s either too mayonnaise-tasting, or it’s perfect
  • you can substitute cream cheese, Greek yogurt or sour cream for half the mayo
  • you do not have to be precise in measuring the ingredients
  • you can add a package of dry Ranch dressing mix
  • almonds can be be omitted, and people will still love this dip
  • you can substitute dried cranberries for the almonds
  • this can be either a dip or a spread
  • you can serve with your favorite crackers, chips or vegetables

Keto-friendly Dip

And the best news is that this dip is Keto-friendly! Just skip the chips or crackers, and grab a spoon. I’m joking! But you could, because it’s that good! I sliced some cucumber and zucchini to use in place of crackers, and stuffed a few large cherry tomatoes. Yummy!

Neiman Marcus Pinwheels?

This dip can even be spread on a tortillas (mine were low carb), then roll up the tortillas and cut into 3/4″ slices for pretty pinwheels for a lunch or appetizer. My pinwheels weren’t as big as the usual pinwheel, but perfect appetizer size.

It’s delicious on Ritz Crackers! Doesn’t this look delicious?

Print recipe

This recipe is my version. It received several favorable comments after the meeting, and Hubby and I loved it! I have already made it a second time in 3 days.

Prep: 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 – 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used 2 oz)
  • 1 1/2  cup shredded cheddar cheese (can add a more, if desired)
  • 1/2 cup chives, finely chopped (or 4 – 5 green onions, thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup pre-cooked bacon bits (so much more flavorful than freshly fried bacon)
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds (optional – I did not add them to the recipe)


  • In a large bowl, slowly mix everything together with a large spoon or spatula.
  • Spoon into a serving dish. Sprinkle a little extra shredded cheese, bacon bits and chopped onions on top.
  • Serve with crackers or chips.

Store the dip in the fridge. It will stay fresh-tasting for 2 days.

    1. The Homemaker’s Association is a nationwide volunteer organization and is part of your local Cooperative Extension Service (along with Master Gardener Association, Cattleman’s Association, 4-H, etc) The Extension Service offers classes on all kinds of subjects. 🙂
