I don’t know about you but around here we like to go big on game day! Big celebration, big food, and big fun! If your house is anything like ours any kind of get together includes lots of food. During the loud, crazy hours somehow the food disappears and, after all is said and done, when things calm down and the house empties out it’s a crazy kind of quiet but not one I like very much. I’m not one of those moms that is looking forward to empty nest.
I’m pretty sure they’ll still come home for the food, though. At the moment that’s my ace in the hole, so to speak.
This dip is amazing. I love those huge baked potatoes we get at the BBQ places here in Texas. They are stuffed full of smooshed potato, sour cream, cheese, bacon, bbq beef, onions, and just about anything else you’d like to stack on top. The best one that I’ve even had was from a little spot in Dallas called Mike Anderson’s BBQ. A couple of years ago one of my sons had surgery at Dallas Children’s Hospital and it required several office visits before and after the surgery plus a couple of days in the hospital. We ate at Mike’s every time we went up there – it was so good. The baked potatoes were beyond spectacular, though. They were gargantuan Texas sized spuds and they had a skyscraper of toppings. There was no way to eat a whole one — at least not for me. Definitely if you are ever in Dallas try to get over there.
Anyway this dip is a version of that gorgeous potato with all of the meat, cheese, and flavor.
The only caveat is you have to be careful of the consistency – if you get it too thick you’ve pretty much got loaded baked potatoes NOT loaded baked potato dip. It will also thicken up and turn into mashed potatoes if you try to make it ahead of time so throw it together right before you’re going to serve it. You probably won’t have leftovers but if you do they make AMAZING potato cakes. Form them into thin patties and fry in hot butter. YUM!
This is great on chips but I really like it on slices of toasted baguette.
