When Shamrock Farms asked me to create a game day recipe to share with you a few years ago, I immediately started thinking about some of our favorite snacks.

My family is all about dippable foods and when I had the idea of a cheesy potato dip for potato chips? I was all over that. It should come as no surprise that my family absolutely loved this recipe and it’s become a much-loved favorite in our house.

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

To make this loaded baked potato dip, first, you bake the potatoes, then you slice them in half, hollow out the centers and combine that fluffy baked potato with sour cream, butter, and cheese.

The filling is my favorite part of classic twice baked potatoes and that was the inspiration for this Twice Baked Potato Dip. Served with sturdy potato chips or eaten with a spoon, this is the mashed potatoes of my dreams.

How To Make Potato Dip

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and poke holes in each one with a fork. Bake for 60-75 minutes, until soft.

  2. Remove the potatoes from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Let the potatoes cool for a few minutes before slicing in half. Hold the potatoes with a hot pad and scoop the potato centers out and into a large mixing bowl. Discard the skins.

  3. Add the butter, sour cream, 1 cup bacon, 3/4 cup cheese, salt, garlic, onion, and pepper to the potatoes in the bowl.

  4. Beat with an electric mixer to combine or smash with a potato masher, leaving plenty of fluffy potato bites in the mix. Stir in half of the sliced green onions.

  5. Transfer to an 8-inch or 2-quart baking dish. Spread in an even layer. Top with the remaining cheese and bacon. Bake for 30 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the potatoes are bubbling with little pools of butter.

  6. Remove from the oven and stir gently, to mix the melted cheese through the potatoes. Sprinkle with the remaining green onions and serve warm with potato chips.
