Loaded Baked Potato Dip

I never thought of using waffle-cut fries as a scoop for dip until a friend of mine did at a baby shower. They’re ideal for my cheesy bacon and chive dip, which tastes just like a baked potato topper. —Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota

    I've been meaning to try this dip for awhile, and finally made it this past weekend. A winner for sure! Made as directed, except I used full fat sour cream and cheese and added a little mayo into the mix. Didn't have waffle fries, so I served it with ruffle-style potato chips. This dip tastes like potato skins and everyone loved it. Next time, I'll make sure I have waffle fries in the freezer. Five stars!

    I used this as a base. I used full fat products and only 1 1/2 cups sour cream added 1/2 cup mayo (I didn't have enough sour cream but the mayo tasted great), 2 Tbsp dried minced onion and 1 tsp garlic powder and left out the chives. We ate it while watching the super bowl. My husband loved it with fries, my daughter (8) and I loved it with ruffled chips (but it was still good with fries).

    I also used full fat products. Since several reviews said it was too bland for them, I added half a packet of dried onion soup mix. Yummy!

    This dip was really easy to make, the hardest part was cooking the bacon! It was made for a crowd and it was eaten pretty quickly. Instead of using the waffle fries, we used wavy potato chips.

    Great dip! I did make with the full-fat products.

    If your gonna make a dip, may as well go for the full fat....which is what I did. Just don't have it every week!

    Can't imagine how someone could call this bland!! It was SO flavorful - the hit of my Christmas eve party!! Wasn't sure if I was going to have time to make it but I (and my guests) was so glad that I did. I made it the night before and mixed in the bacon right before serving.

    This is a great dip but like some have mentioned it can be a bit bland. I usually use the full fat versions of sour cream and cheese and only use real pork bacon. I do add some salt if needed.

    Very disappointed. The dip was bland, needed salt. The cheese overpowered the other flavors. I used scallions instead of chives. It did taste a little better warmed up. Tasted better with potato chips instead of waffle-cut fries.

    This was delicious. It was super easy to make. I made it ahead and then cooked the waffle fries when I got to my dinner party. It did make a lot of dip. So I would recommend that you cut the recipe in half or buy two bags of fries. It was really delicious. It tasted like potato skins. Yummy!
