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!
SOOO GOOD! I added about a 1/4 cup of mayo and 1 tablespoon of ranch dressing mix. I took it to a party and had to save a bit at home for my husband. He loved it sooo much.
This is a fast, easy and delicious recipe. What more could you want!? I mixed the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and sour cream together the night before. I did stir in a little garlic powder to taste. I chopped my green onions and prepared my bacon, putting them in separate zip loc bags in the fridge until I needed it the next afternoon. About an hour before serving I stirred the green onions and bacon in and put it back in the fridge so the flavors could blend. Since this is a baked potato dip I served mine with wavy potato chips. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe Erin!
