Reviews for Loaded Baked Potato Dip
"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."
"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."
"Delish, Delish great taste and so easy to prepare. What more can you ask for. Thank you and enjoy your day."
"Loved this dip. I used potato chips instead of fries"
"Really loved this with ruffle chips! I used a bit of salt instead of the hot sauce and mixed the dip (without bacon) the night before, let the flavours blend. Then added the bacon at the last minute so it didn't go soggy. Got lots of raves about it!"
"The waffle fries were great with this. It was just so-so with potato chips."
"This is my favorite dip. It is so easy and delicious. But, I never use the hot sauce."
"Cannot wait to try this. Sounds wonderful. Love the idea from 235gbt. Going to try that"
"I didn't use it as a dip - i smeared it on some flour tortillas and topped it with deli oven roasted turkey or deli roast beef and then layer on a few sprigs of the green onion tops to each tortillas and roll up and then roll again in plastic wrap - chill for at least 1 hr - slice n2 - 1" slices or just cut n2 half for a sandwich type!"
"can you substitute bacon bits for bacon?"
"Was quite good!"
"I never thought of waffle fries as a dipper. New favorite for all our fries. Delicious. Taking to my next gathering."
"Waffle Fries are a great idea for dippers ? one of those ?why didn?t I think of it? recipes. I substituted real bacon bits (Costco) for the bacon strips to make it even easier ? just microwave briefly to warm, then stir in."
"Yum! My one complaint with this is we ate so much we were full and couldn't eat anything else."
"This was awesome with some oven fries, my hungry fireman devoured it!"
