Thanks to my fabulous fellow blogger, Megan, from The Thread Affect–we just enjoyed this simple yet delicious dip for an afternoon snack. It was very easy to prepare..although I never purchase sour cream, so I had to ask a lady shopper yesterday where it was located. 🙂 I used the Oscar Mayer brand of “already cooked bacon” and cut it into small pieces. Lots of cheese, and I lucked out in getting to use scallions from my mom’s garden (YUM). Instead of potato chips, I had purchased Snack Factory’s Pretzel Crisps flavored “Everything.” What a combination for a light but delicious afternoon treat. 🙂
I kid you not, this dip tastes straight up like a loaded baked potato. Absolutely delicious and oh-so-easy! Perfect flavor to go with a backyard barbecue or to simply spice up your bland everyday potato chips.
16 ounces sour cream
16 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled OR the cheater way (i.e. my way) 2 2.5 oz bags pre-crumbled real bacon pieces
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or chives
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together. Garnish with extra shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and chopped chives. Serve with your favorite potato chips.

Bacon. It’s the bacon. ANYthing with bacon is good…..
Yes! Best part is that I have leftover strips…now I totally can make eggs, toast and bacon for breakfast or bacon in a sandwich. 🙂

Not as of yet but I’m thinking this will be a perfect Fall dish to add to a lunch or something “on the side” with chips! 😀 ~ Megs

Bwahaha! I’m glad you caught that “on the side” inside joke… I actually was thinking this would be great for Superbowl Sunday!!! But I’d like to try it way before then 😉
