Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Rated as 3.43 out of 5 Stars

"Any decent Big Game snack table has to have a few substantial dips, and this loaded baked potato dip, with its three pounds of bacon, is nothing if not substantial. It's also shaped like a football, which of course has been proven to taste better to people drinking beer than dips in a bowl. Speaking of beer, I think this will pair nicely with something cheap, domestic, and in a can."

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Pour bacon into a colander set over a bowl to drain and cool to room temperature; finely chop cooled bacon.
  2. Stir 6 cups sour cream, Cheddar cheese, 1 cup chopped green onion, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together in a large bowl until well-mixed. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
  3. Spread sour cream mixture into a football shape in the center of a serving platter. Spread bacon over the top to resemble the outside of a football.
  4. Place 1/4 cup sour cream in a piping bag; pipe 1 line on each end of the "football" and 1 set of "laces" down the center of the "football". Spread 1 1/2 cups chopped green onion around the "football" to resemble "grass".

I did not care for this. Just strong, unblended flavors of sour cream, onion, and bacon ( bacon's usually a such a good thing!) We opened a jar of salsa, and tried adding a spoonful of salsa to...

It may be a bit sacrilegious for some, but I used turkey bacon and yogurt in place of sour cream. It tasted great.

Really yummy I modified it a bit. I used cream cheese with a bit of sour cream and added jalapeños and corn. I also used turkey bacon.

Made a small version of this to try before super bowl and it was WELL LOVED by everyone who tried it- thanks Chef John!!

Edible but was never firm enough to shape like the video shows. Even added cream cheese to try to stiffen the mix.
