While I am not particularly interested if the Steelers beat the Packers, there is something that I am interested in on Superbowl Sunday. The food. I love Superbowl food. Dips, appetizers, finger foods, cheese, chili, and icy cold beers. It is the one day of the year when you are supposed to eat garbage and it is perfectly acceptable, if not encouraged. It is the one time of the year that I do not even bother to put together a well-rounded meal that includes all the food groups and various colors.
This Loaded Baked Potato Dip is perfect for a Superbowl Party. Loaded Baked Potato Dip takes mere minutes to make, and can be made a day ahead of time. It includes the Superbowl party food groups: cheese, bacon, sour cream, and potato chips. I served mine with chips, but next time, I would use Alexia’s Waffle Fries. I think that you need something a little more substantial to use for a dip delivery system. The chips broke in the dip. No one likes to fish the other half of their chip out of the dip bowl. It would also be divine served inside a baked potato, hence the name.
I got this recipe from the January 2011 Southern Living Magazine.
1/4 pound thick cut bacon (I used pepper bacon)
1 (16-ounce) container sour cream
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (I used a cheese blend and it was still cheesy and delish)
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons hot sauce
waffle fries or potato chips
Put everything in the bowl. (I save a little bacon and chives to garnish with.)
Mix. We are really cooking now. Pour it into your container and let chill for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
Garnish with the reserved bacon and chives. Serve with some chips or waffle fries.
Grab an icy cold beverage and dip away. Who are we rooting for? The Steelers or the Packers?
