Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Rated as 3.5 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".

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!!

Why is this called Loaded Baked Potato Dip if there aren't any potatoes in it?

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