I used my own homemade dry ranch dressing mix and upped the onions. I also splurged and used real bacon a half pound that I cooked to a crisp and crumbled. The cheese I used was sharp cheddar. I threw this together early this morning and let it set most of the day until I got home from work my husband and I have eaten most of it--there's nothing left for Christmas. Whoops. We loved it!

This let our high hopes and great expectations down. It does improve somewhat as it sets but it ultimately left us unimpressed one way or the other. Saltiness got in the way of real flavor so it's best served with anything but salty potato chips. Read More

This is good! I tried to reduce fat and calories by using light sour cream light cream cheese and 2% sharp cheddar; I didn't feel like the flavor of the dip was compromised. I used the entire container of sour cream instead of the 8oz called for in the recipe. The flavor of bacon was good but not over-powering using real bacon pieces (found by the salad dressing at the grocery store). I served Ritz reduced fat crackers along with veggies (red pepper carrots and celery). A super easy recipe AND good?!? It's a keeper in my book:)PS- Even better after it sits overnight! Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 17 Dec. 2011 - Excellent dip! We have used this on baked potatoes and crackers. Our favorite was when I stuffed celery stalks with it. There is a lot of flavor to this. Found that it works best if left out of the fridge for about 30 minutes before using on potatoes or spreading in celery. Thanks Luanne A. for sharing this recipe. UPDATE: We spread on French bread slices and popped the bread under the broiler. It made for a yummy creamy treat. Read More

This dip was great! I made it for a New Year's Eve party and was so well liked and easy that my husband made it for a New Year's Day party. The bacon really adds a nice smokey flavor to the dip and the onions give it a slightly spicy taste. I didn't set the dip in the refrigerator overnight like the recipe states since I didn't have time but it still tasted great! In fact I don't know if that step is necessary because when I tasted it the next day it seemed the same to me. So if you're hesitant to try it because you're making it at the last minute it will turn out just fine. This will be a dip that I make often whenever I need something easy and quick to take somewhere. Thank you for the recipe Luanne! Read More

Excellent recipe! I didn't have any potato chips but it was great on tortilla chips and whole grain crackers. Can't wait to try it on actual potato chips. Read More
