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

    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!

    I slightly varied the ingredients- I used Mexican blend cheese, dried chives and sriracha. So easy to put together while the waffle fries are cooking. It would also be fantastic with a nice sturdy potato chip.
