I got this from a friend at work. Great job Jenn!
Make and share this Loaded Baked Potato Dip/Spread recipe from Food.com.

- 16 ounces sour cream
- 1 (2 ounce) package bacon bits
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
- green onion
- Mix all of the above items together and serve with crackers or whatever you want.
After I made this dip, and my husband and I ate some of it, I thought the dip seemed to be missing something, perhaps some garlic powder, but after I read JenJenMarie's comment, I decided to add 3 tablespoons of Kraft Mayonnasie and 2 teaspoons of the dry Ranch seasoning to my remaining (1-lb. 5-oz.) of dip, and boy did this dip ever taste good, also nice and creamy. JenJenMarie had a great tip to improve the taste of the dip, and that's how I'm going to make this dip from now on. I know the recipe states to add 2 oz. of bacon bits, but I cooked up 10 strips of bacon in place of the bacon bits, plus I didn't have any green onions, so I added 2 teaspoons of diced yellow onion. If made as the recipe states, I found this to yield: (2-lbs. 2 oz.) of dip. I am giving this recipe 5 stars, but only because of the changes I made to it, but if I hadn't read JenJenMarie's tip, and changed up the recipe, I probably would of only given this recipe 3 stars, which the 3-star rating still means the recipe is good. By the way... this dip is especially good when spread on Garlic Flavored Ritz Crackers!! Thank-you Erin for posting this recipe, and thank you JenJenMarie, for the excellent recipe tip.
It was fast. It was easy. It does taste like a loaded baked potato when eaten with plain potato chips. That said, we did not care for this at all. One of the things that we did not like was the texture of the cheddar cheese that was added in. We won't be making this again.
Awesome dip! Thanks for sharing!
