Loaded Baked Potato Dip

My dearest mother claims this is her favorite appetizer I’ve ever made, so you know it’s absolutely delicious! If you like loaded baked potatoes, you will L-O-V-E this appetizer.

The original recipe was a little bland for my tastes, so I added a heap of garlic, parsley, basil and pepper, my go-to herbs and spices, to add a little flavor. The extra ingredients are what gave the dip its WOW factor, and I would suggest adding any herbs and spices that satisfy your tastes to really make this a delicious appetizer.

Ingredients:

16 ounces sour cream
16 slices (12-ounce package) bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or chives (I used both for extra flavor)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving to allow flavors to meld together. Garnish with extra shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped chives. Serve with your favorite potato chips or pretzel crisps. Dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
