Loaded Baked Potato Dip

by Erin

This dip has been on my list of things to make since I first saw it – in January! I unfortunately don’t have the opportunity to make appetizers much since I am typically cooking for one, so the occasions for which I could make this dip were kind of slim. But with the rise of football season, I no longer needed much of an excuse to make it. I even substituted out some of the sour cream for Greek yogurt. It totally makes up for all that cheese and bacon, right? I guess you could use turkey bacon if you’d like. Personally, I prefer the real thing, especially when it plays such a major role.

Traffic court attempt #2 this morning. I’m sure I’ll have some sort of rant ready for you tomorrow.


Makes about 4 cups


8 oz. light sour cream

8 oz. plain Greek yogurt (I used 2% Chobani)

16 slices (12 oz. package) bacon, cooked and crumbled

8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)

1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or chives


  1. 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.

I’ve tried a dip like this before, but not with Greek yogurt. What a great idea. I’m going to try this one, too.

And you’re right – football season is the perfect excuse AND real bacon is the way to go! Can’t wait to give this a try!

This dip looks insane, Erin! Love this for football or random pig-out days (please tell me you have those too).

You can’t go wrong with any type of loaded potato recipe and including it in a dip makes it even better!
