A loaded baked potato dip combines the classic flavours of sour cream, chives and bacon, along with delicious Greek yoghurt and a touch of mayonnaise. Perfect to scoop with paper thin potato chips or toasted pita, the dip is a great way to keep groups of people engaged as they’re having a great time. This dip is for the ultimate food fanatic who loves all things fattening, bacon-y and creamy. For most people that love a good baked potato and understand the joy of sticking your fork through one topped off with plenty of cheese, sour cream and bacon bits, knows that this dip is one to write home about.

Easy to make, with ingredients you’d probably have in your pantry or avail easily, this dip is great to make for parties or gatherings, or even better, eaten in solitude with a bag of chips by your side. Interestingly enough, you’d notice a prominent absence of the actual potato in the dip itself, hence making it taste like a baked potato would with all the fixings, only without having to wait for an actual whole potato to bake in the oven. Find the recipe to make a portion that serves two, below.

  • Allow the onions to cool lightly on a plate. Meanwhile, combine the Greek yoghurt, mayonnaise, gherkins, bacon and cheese in a large bowl and stir everything together.
