Breakfast 7 Layer Dip

Breakfast 7 Layer Dip

Thank goodness, football season is back. There’s just something so fun about gathering with your friends and family and cheering on your favorite team.

We don’t make it to the stadium for real tailgates often, but we do a pretty great home tailgate and watching party.

I know everyone has their favorite tailgate foods (queso!), but those pesky morning games can pose a challenge.  What tailgate foods can you serve for breakfast?  Well I created the perfect solution: breakfast 7 layer dip.

Perfect for morning tailgates! Breakfast 7 layer dip- cinnamon cream cheese, blueberries, strawberries, jam, coconut, nuts, and maple syrup.  Easy to assemble and your guests will LOVE it.

I am a dip girl, so it only made sense to seek out a breakfast dip for those morning gatherings.

And it was a HIT!  I tried it out on my life group, and they loved it.

The players:

  • 2 blocks of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups blueberries, washed
  • 2 cups washed and chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1.5 cups coconut flakes (I used unsweetened)
  • 1.5 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (don’t use the nasty “pancake syrup”- use the real stuff!)
  • graham crackers or French toast sticks for dipping

Breakfast 7 Layer Dip!  Fruit, cream cheese, and nuts come together for a delicious dip.  Ideal for brunch, morning tailgates, and group breakfasts.

There’s only one layer that involves prep, and it’s the base layer.  Mix the cream cheese with the cinnamon and powered sugar.

Then layer the dip as follows:

  1. Cinnamon cream cheese
  2. Blueberries
  3. Strawberries
  4. Apricot Jam
  5. Coconut flakes
  6. Walnuts
  7. Drizzle with maple syrup

Serve with graham crackers or French toast sticks.  It’s a little “loose” of a dip after it sits because the fruit will give off some water, but it’s delish even if you make it ahead of time!


  1. YUM!!! Although I must say that when I was looking at the picture (before I read the ingredients) I was positive that the top layer was black eyed peas…and I was like THAT IS GOING TO BE DISGUSTING WITH STRAWBERRIES AND BLUEBERRIES and I basically questioned everything I knew about you. 🙂 BUT then I found out they are walnuts and it all makes more sense and we’re good again. Ha!

    • That’s hilarious! I never saw them as anything other than walnuts…but you’re SO right! They look like black eyed peas! ha! It’s a really yummy recipe- walnuts and all! ha!

  2. What a great idea! What a perfect breakfast dip! I never would have thought about making a dip. I’m heading to Fayetteville tomorrow to do a little tailgating. I’m ready for some Rick’s for breakfast.
