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

"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."

"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!"
