“You'll definitely be the hit of the party with this appetizer that tastes like a baked potato with all the fixings- in a dip form! Grab some rippled potato chips to serve with this cheesy, bacon potato dip. I have to have copies of this recipe on hand whenever I make it. The recipe takes about ten minutes to put together, and it can even be made a day ahead of time. Best served hot! What more could you ask for?"”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix instant potato flakes and milk together and let sit for a few minutes (sometimes I add a little more of both these ingredients if I want to make more base for the dip).
  2. Next, add cream cheese, sour cream, 1/2 c cheddar cheese, and 1/2 c bacon bits, s & p. Mix well with spoon.
  3. Put mixture into baking dish (I use 8x 8 or pie dish). Top with 1/2 c cheddar cheese and 1/2 c bacon bits, s & p if needed. Bake 20 minutes at 350. Serve with rippled potato chips and enjoy!
