Loaded Baked Potato Dip

We continue onto Week 4 of College Football, which means another delicious Football bite! If you’re a fan of a loaded baked potato then I have the perfect appetizer for you! This loaded baked potato dip has all of our favorite baked potato fixins-sour cream, sharp cheese, bacon crumbles, and scallions.

With only four ingredients, this dip takes minutes to make and can be made a day ahead. In fact, the longer you let the flavors mingle the better the dip. I suggest letting the dip chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving, but if you can make it a day ahead it tastes even better! :)

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Yield: Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

16 ounces sour cream
16 slices (12-ounce package) bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces (about 2 cups) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or chives

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 24 hours before serving.
Garnish with extra shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped chives/scallions before serving. Serve with potato chips or pretzels. Dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

      No potato in the ingredients…the potato chips are the potatoes! :)

    When I first saw this I thought there would be potato in it, but it’s just traditional toppings, and then the potato chip is like the potato. Very creative! I bet this would be a hit at any football party :)

    I had to laugh at myself…I reread your recipe several times looking for the potatoes. I guess I’m a little slow….the potato is the chips. Great dip idea.

    Bacon, sour cream, cheese, and scallions. That dip would be gone very quickly in our house.

    I would NOT be able to stop eating this if I ever made it Christina! I would have to have a HUGE group of people going at it with me, just to keep me from eating it all! I’m going to try this and your buffalo dip this football season!

    I’ll never make this for the two of us because we’ll sit there and eat the whole thing. I have to wait for a football party, bummer!! Looks amazing! And I can’t believe only 4 ingredients!

    Darn you Cristina! This is DELICIOUS! I made some for my election night party tomorrow and I don’t know if it will last. The only thing I added was a little bit of sea salt. TO.DIE.FOR.

    I added a package of ranch dip for a twist and the fritos onion dip from the can to the recipe (about 1/2 the can) and its delicious!! thanks for the idea for this dip!

    • Christina replied: — November 20th, 2012 @ 5:13 pm

      Mmmmm…I love the idea of adding a package of ranch dip and some onion dip! Sounds delicious…I’ll have to give it a try next time I make the dip! :)

    I posted this recipe recently and had a ton of comments asking why there weren’t any potatoes in the dip :)

    This is one of my favorite dips!
