Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Yum

A dip made with sour cream, green onions, cheese, and bacon bits.  It's like a loaded baked potato on a chip.

I don't know if the rest of you are as excited as I am, but college football starts this weekend.  I love watching college football (I like NFL too).  There are only a few teams I really care about (my alma mater and my husband's alma maters--he has a PhD so there are a few) and the rest I watch jeering against a rival or just have on in the background hoping for a good game.  My husband even brings our second TV into the living room so we can watch 2 games at once (one time we had games on both TVs, 2 laptops, and a cell phone).

Besides the football, I love the food.  Usually, it's just me and my husband but occasionally a friend or two and I love having some kind of football snack for us.  Dips are an especially great gameday snack and this one is one of my new favorites.  I love a loaded baked potato and that's what you get with this dip.  It's the perfect addition to just about any potato product.  I dipped chips, but it would also taste great with fries, tots, wedges, skins, even mixed in with mashed potatoes.  Try some at your next football gathering or any gathering.

Place the sour cream into a large bowl and stir in all the other ingredients.  Add a hand full at a time and stir until it looks fully loaded to you. Reserve some of each to sprinkle over the top as a garnish (optional).

Serve with your favorite potato product.  Enjoy.

  9. Me to Bobbie. The first time I tried this my husband was out of town so it was just for me...I did space it out throughout a week though. To make it 'healthier' I used a light sour cream and I really couldn't tell the difference so that's a way to lighten it a bit and no one will know. And there is just a tad less guilt while eating it all :)

  19. Joybee, I'm really excited about this dip. I love potatoes, especially loaded baked potatoes. I've also had a long-running obsession with green onion. Will be making this very soon. Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo this week.

  21. Thanks Elizabeth. Yes, potato chips are potatoes...maybe not as healthy as a baked potato but...
