Like all of the best toppings on a loaded baked potato, this Hot Bacon and Cheese Dip is packed with creamy flavor thanks to the cheese, bacon, sour cream, and chives that are melted together inside! [Tweet “Hot Bacon & Cheese Dip: the perfect party food and only 5 mins of prep! #dip #appetizer “]
In honor of my football-loving birthday boy, today I’m sharing a man-friendly recipe that’s absolutely perfect for serving to the guys on game day! After all, nothing makes my husband happier than the arrival of fall, which automatically means football season (and just as importantly, fantasy football season).
I’m happy to report that this dip got the male seal of approval! Keith loved it with the potato chips — after all, it basically combines the tastiest toppings from a loaded baked potato and melts them together in one creamy bite. The recipe gets my seal of approval because it’s incredibly simple and FAST to prepare. This is the perfect party food for all of your gatherings this season!

Minus the cream cheese this is basically my loaded baked potato dip. But my mouth is watering thinking of adding that cream cheese and sticking it in the oven. Yum! I think I might be trying this recipe this season!
