Homemade Bacon Horseradish Dip that tastes just like the popular brand! Made with real bacon, horseradish sauce, and sour cream, it's easy to make and full of flavor.
I had been wanting to make a copycat version of Heluva Good! Bacon Horseradish Dip for a long time. It's my favorite of all of the Heluva Good dips! I tried to make it once last summer making the dip with refrigerated horseradish, but I didn't like it because it tasted to vinegary. I found a few recipes online that said to make sure the horseradish is well drained, but there wasn't really any liquid in it to drain.
I didn't try to make it again until just recently, but I had decided awhile ago to give up on the idea of using fresh horseradish and use store-bought horseradish sauce instead. There are a number of brands you can use. In my case, I used Dietz & Watson horseradish sauce, I think it's the best horseradish sauce brand.
Bacon Horseradish Dip
This Bacon Horseradish Dip is almost an exact match to the favorite! The only difference is that the bacon crumbles are a bit bigger than the store-bought. I made them as small as possible by crumbling the bacon in my small food processor instead of trying to do it by hand. After that, it's just the horseradish sauce, sour cream, and a little bit of onion powder, so easy!
I made it again last night for munching on during the Super Bowl, along with Spinach Artichoke Dip and Cajun Ranch Wings. Too bad we weren't having a party, it was just the three of us. Oh, well, that just means more for me!
Here are a few more copycat recipes I've made over the years:
Broccoli Cheddar Pasta Salad ((Walmart Copycat Recipe)
Mozzarella Tomato and Artichoke Salad (Discontinued Walmart Recipe)
Noodles and Ground Beef Soup (Campbell's Copycat Recipe)
Victory Pig Sicilian Style Pizza

Bacon Horseradish Dip Heluva Good! Copycat Recipe
- 8 ounces center cut bacon
- 12 ounces store-bought horseradish sauce (I used Dietz & Watson)
- 1 cup light sour cream
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; drain and process until fine in a food processor.
- Combine the horseradish sauce, sour cream, and onion powder in a medium mixing bowl; stir well. Fold in the crumbled bacon. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
I am giving this 5 stars because it’s a great base recipe. Very easy to adjust to your own taste. My personal opinion the horseradish is extremely overpowering. I added additional sour cream approximately 1-1 1/2 cups more and I only used 9.5 oz of horseradish sauce (ingelhoffers) next time I will use less horseradish and more bacon as well as the additional sour cream.

Years ago there was a series of cookbooks & all of the recipes were copycats of restaurant favs so when I saw the name of this recipe I HAD to make it. Quick, easy, ingredients usually on hand & absolutely spot on!!! I had some Helluva good to compare...absolutely spot on!!! Thanks for copying one of my now years round fav dips
Hi Paul, I'm so glad you liked it!

My Bacon Horseradish Chip Dip is just a little different. I use cream cheese, sour cream, horseradish sauce and hot English mustard. I also grind my bacon before frying it. And instead of onion powder I use finely diced Japanese green onions or finely diced spring onions.

I made this for the first time today and shout hallelujah! It’s the closest I’ve come to Helluva Goods brand! Thank You so much, I really enjoy it, and will make it at our future get together!
I'm so happy you enjoyed it!
Can you use just prepared horseradish? If so what would the amount be?
Hi Darryl, I originally tried to make this recipe using prepared horseradish, but I didn't care for the texture it gave the dip. If you want to try it, I used two or three tablespoons.

I tried to make this on my own once and couldn't get the horseradish taste of Hell Of Good. I will be trying this very shortly. Thank you for posting this.
I hope you like it! I tried one or two times to make it before I figured out I needed the horseradish sauce.
I followed the recipe exactly, and my hubby said that all he could taste was the horseradish sauce. I added another cup of sour cream and that helped get it closer to the hellava bacon horseradish dip. Since they don't sell it around us, this was a great substitute. Thanks!
I'm glad you were able to adjust it to your liking.

Are you sure it is 12 ounces of horseradish. That it way to much. That's 1 1/2 cups.
Hi Kathleen, it's horseradish sauce, not pure horseradish. I used Dietz and Watson brand but there are several different brands. It's like Arby's Horsey Sauce. You can copy this link into a new tab to see the ingredients. http://dietzandwatson.com/products/horseradish-sauce-3/

Sauce...not full-strength horseradish. I actually use packets of Arby's Horsey Sauce.
