Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Bake the bacon on the baking sheet until crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to cool and drain.

Combine the Cheddar, Gouda, cream cheese, mayonnaise, paprika, green onions pimentos, hot sauce and some salt and pepper in a bowl. Blend together with a hand mixer until creamy and well mixed. Chop the bacon and fold into the mixture.
