This Loaded Baked Potato Dip is an easy Super bowl appetizer and a crowd favorite.
With the big football game coming in just a few weeks, we’re gearing up for some fun.
I am a planner. When it comes to Super Sunday, I like to plan out all our easy Super Bowl appetizers and dips. I like to make sure we are set for game day!
Planning for the Big Game
Are you a party thrower or party attendee?
Every year our friends throw a fabulous party. Their Super Bowl party has tons of games, drinks and the most delicious variety of FOOD! I try and bring a new appetizer to the party each year. This dip is so good, I end up bringing it along with my new finger food each year.
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
If you are anything like me, then loaded baked potatoes are one of my favorite dinner recipes. When you think Loaded bake potato, what do you think of? Some of my favorite toppings are ranch dressing, sour cream, garlic powder, bacon and chives.
What makes this dip great is all the delicious flavors of a loaded baked potato, but in a bite size. This dip takes less than 30 minutes to make and all the flavors you crave!
There are only a few ingredients, but with the ones in this recipe there are tons of flavor.
What you will need to make this delicious dip
This dip combines a few decadent ingredients to make one of the most delicious dips I’ve ever tasted.
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix
- 3 green onions, diced
- 8 pieces of bacon, chopped
- black pepper (optional)
How to make game day dips
First you start by cooking the bacon. I like crispy bacon because its easier to chop.
Once the bacon is cooked, then chop it finely. I like small pieces throughout my dip, but that is all based on preference.
Mix all the ingredients together until it is fully combined.
Note: You will want to make sure both cream cheese and sour cream are at room temperature. Otherwise, they will not fully mix and you will have cream cheese sour cream chunks. You can also substitute both for reduced fat versions. I personally think it has a different tangier taste, but again, it is based on preference.
Grab you favorite potato chips and serve.
What to serve with the loaded potato dip?
This dip is really universal.
Serving it with a potato chip is always a great bet. It can be served with vegetables and be a healthier option. It can also really great on crackers or tortilla chip. I have even served it with waffle fries for a true loaded bake potato taste!
Can you make it ahead of time?
You can certainly make this ahead of time. It just needs to be stored in an airtight container, in the refrigerator. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Just let it sit for a 20-30 minutes once you take it out of the refrigerator.
