- Mix the dry mix with the mayonnaise, heavy cream, sour cream, and lemon juice. Let chill for at least an hour before serving. You can thin this with a little MCT oil or water or more heavy cream. You can also use less heavy cream for a thicker dip.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Line a 9” by 13” baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lay the bacon out in a single layer across the tray. The slices may be touching, but should not overlap.
- Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until the bacon is done to your preference.
- Cut the celery stalks and bell peppers into sticks and put everything on a big plate or cutting board. Start dippin'!
