Captain Rodney’s Cheese Bake Dip

This dip is loaded with cheese, cream cheese, bacon, and Captain Rodney’s Boucan Pepper Glaze. What the heck is Captain Rodney’s Boucan Pepper Glaze? It’s a glaze that’s both sweet and spicy. Actually, this product was an accident that turned out to be the company’s best-selling glaze. If you can’t find it locally, you can get Captain Rodney’s Boucan Pepper Glaze here.

A substitution for this glaze would be Pepper Jelly. You can get Pepper Jelly here or at Walmart here.

How do I make Captain Rodney’s Dip?

It’s really very simple. First, you really need to allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature. This makes combining it with the other ingredients easier. If you forget to set it on the counter, you can always microwave it on medium for a few seconds at a time until it’s room temperature.

Combine mayonnaise, cream cheese, cheese, and onions together. You can do this in a mixer, which is the easiest way, or by hand. Spread this mixture in a pie pan.

Next, crush butter crackers on top and cook for 15 minutes.

Finally, when it comes out of the oven sprinkled cooked, crumbled bacon on top and drizzle the glaze over everything. If you are using pepper jelly instead of Captain Rodney’s glaze, microwave the jelly and stir it so that you can spoon or drizzle it over the cream cheese mixture.

For the bacon, you can either cook the bacon and crumble it or you can use real bacon bits. I really like this brand the best (also at Walmart here.)

  1. 5 stars
    We couldn’t find Boucan so we subbed in a friend’s pine-strawberry reaper jelly. Simple to put together and tasted amazing! Can’t wait to serve at our next get-together.

  2. 5 stars
    This dip is awesome! It goes together so quickly. I will be making this often. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. What type of pepper jelly would I use if I can’t find Captain Rodneys? Jalapeno, Red Pepper, Green Pepper?

  4. 5 stars
    This is the best dip I’ve ever tasted. Great with Frito Scoops. A southern woman made it, of course.
