Loaded Baked Potato Dip

I love a good loaded baked potato. In fact, I always order a loaded baked potato when I have the option at a restaurant. So when I spotted this recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Dip, I knew it was going to be fabulous. I was not disappointed! 

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

What’s not to love about warm waffle fries dipped in a savory mixture of sour cream, cheese and bacon? Nothing, that’s what!

This dip is goes great with Ruffles potato chips, or (my personal favorite), warm waffle fries. If you happen to have leftovers, it also makes a great topping for baked potatoes.

Come to thing of it, you could also stir it into mashed potatoes. Basically, you can’t go wrong combining this cheesy dip with almost any kind of potatoes.

You’ll want to serve this dip at room temperature–my family actually liked it slightly warm–so whatever you prefer is fine.

If you opt for waffle fries, you’ll want them to be nice and crispy–they’ll work much better for dipping that way. Same for your potato chips. You’ll want a variety that’s nice and sturdy.

Sometimes, if I have Ranch dressing mix handy, I’ll stir a little bit of that in for a something a little bit different. And you could certainly switch up the kind of shredded cheese you use.

One thing is for certain, this dip is perfect for game day, tailgating, or any get together. It makes enough to serve a crowd and it’s always a hit!

  1. Looks delicious 🙂 Love the idea of using waffle fries instead of a chip.

  2. What’s not to love? I would just dip my fingers in and chow.

  3. This dip is a HUGE hit with my crew. We make it fairly regularly during football season. Instead of waffle fries I get pretzel snaps (the little square grid ones) and they’re great for holding up to this dip. I’m actually making it tonight for a work thing tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing!
