Did I mention how EASY this is to make?! Just 10 minutes prep time is all that’s required. It’s the perfect appetizer dip for Superbowl Sunday (or any gathering!).
If you’re not a fan of green onions you can most definitely substitute fresh chives for them in this recipe.
What to serve with loaded baked potato dip:
- Potato chips
- Potato wedges / french fries
To make this dip lower fat, use:
- Low fat cream cheese
- Low fat cheddar cheese
- Low fat sour cream
- Turkey bacon instead of regular bacon
I always use freshly cracked black pepper in this dip, but I don’t add salt because it tastes plenty salty enough with the cheeses, ranch dressing and bacon. Add salt (if desired) to what suits your taste buds!
