This dip is always a crowd pleaser - and how could it not be? Crispy bacon and deeply caramelized onions are the star of this delicious bacon onion dip. Greek yogurt gives it some bright tang, so while it has rich flavors, it doesn't feel as heavy as mayo or sour cream-based dip.

Brighten it up even more with chives, and serve alongside pita chips, or root vegetable chips for some color.

PS - if you're making it for a group larger than 4 to 6 people, consider doubling the recipe... it goes quickly!

Image of Bacon Onion Dip


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 pound double smoked slab bacon (diced small)
  • 1 large onion (diced small)
  • 1 cup whole Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • Veggies or chips, such as pita chips, for serving


  1. As seen on: Giada's Holiday Handbook, Season 2, Episode 2. Vintage-Inspired Happy Hour.
  2. Place the olive oil and bacon in a medium skillet and place over medium heat. Cook the bacon, stirring often, until it is golden brown and crispy, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Add the onion to the pan with the bacon fat and cook slowly, stirring often until deeply caramelized, about 15 minutes. Add them to the bowl with the bacon. Let cool for about 5 minutes. Stir in the yogurt, salt, and chives. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavors mingle. Serve with raw veggies or your chips of choice.

    No joke, the best onion dip I’ve ever had. It seems like a lot of onions but it really makes it a great texture using just the Greek yogurt. You would never guess that’s the only base.
