This was a great dip after adding a few personal touches I used real bacon instead of imitation and I added a pack of ranch dressing and a tsp of ground red pepper to give it the edge it needed. Without adding extra stuff it would have been okay just a little bland. It was a total hit at our holiday party. Read More

As is it's very bland because the sour cream is overwhelming the recipe. After tasting I added garlic salt & onion powder. I also added a ton of scallions before the powders but they didn't do much. I didn't want to use ranch dressing mix because it has a ton of MSG in it. I wish it was MSG-free because I just couldn't get the right mix of garlic & onion powders and salt. My husband enjoyed it but he loves sour cream. Next time I would add more bacon (I used homemade bacon bits). Guests at Thanksgiving left a lot on their plates and didn't mention it so I'd say it was a bust! Read More

I've been making this for a while and it is always a hit at parties. I've known it as 'Potato Skin Dip' and my recipe has it layered: sour cream spread on a plate then the green onions cheese & topped with bacon. Then potato chips are used to 'scoop'through it--just another way to present this popular dip at a party! Read More

This dip is so addictive! Everyone just raved about it! I did make the chages some suggested: I added a packet of ranch dressing mix and I used real bacon. Thanks so much for a great recipe. Read More

Love this recipe!...took it to work served with TownHouse crackers we couldn't stay out of it. Same response with my family and with extended family who had it at the family Christmas get-together. It was also fantastic on baked potatoes. I did add cracked pepper and garlic powder to suit our tastes. Read More

DELISH!!!! Wow this stuff is addicting! I took the advice of other reviewers and added one envelope of ranch dressing mix. I also gave it a pinch of black pepper too. You have to serve this dip with potato chips to get that whole "loaded baked potato" taste. I snipped some fresh chives on top for a bit of color. My family couldn't stop eating this at Easter this year. Thanks BrendaTX for a fabulous recipe! Read More

I used this to top off my baked potato THEN ate it with chips. Very good. I might try a bit of adding ranch dressing mix with it next time and use chives instead of scallions (personal preference). Wish I had some now!!! Read More

This was a simple tasty dip...best after letting it refridgerate for a few hours so the tastes can blend a little better. I halved the recipe and I too used real crumbled bacon. I also added 2 TBLS of miracle whip (to take the "edge" off the sour cream and add some zip). Went well with chips and if I make baked potatoes within the next day or two (and if I still have any of this dip left) I see how well they do as a topper. Overall pretty good and easy recipe. Thanks Brenda! Read More
