I use the Little Potato Company Boomer Gold Potatoes but you can use any small potato of your choice. These party potatoes with bacon blue cheese dip can be served hot or cold. There is a cohesive and printable recipe for these party potatoes with blue cheese bacon dip at the end of this bog post. I am just sharing a few tips and tricks for making this recipe.
The Ingredients For The Party Potatoes With Blue Cheese Bacon Dip
The ingredients are listed in the printable recipe. I use the pre-cooked bacon in the pouch but fresh cooked bacon is a good addition too. I included measurements in the printable recipe but if you would like more bacon feel free to add as much or as little as you want. The other ingredient I include in the recipe is blue cheese. If you are not a fan of blue cheese you can substitute sharp cheddar, or any cheese you prefer. The cheese is the same as the bacon, feel free to add as little or as much as you like. I choose a super rich and salty blue cheese for this dip. If you use a very salty cheese, be sure to adjust how much salt you use on the potatoes so that your recipe isn’t overly salty.
I bought all the ingredients for this recipe at Aldi. The cost of all of these ingredients was about $12. These ingredients are available at all grocery stores. If you do shop at Aldi, you can find the bacon and the ranch by the salad dressing and I chose the $3.99 bacon.
Time To Get Cooking
- 1 bag of The Little Potato Company Baby Boomer Yellow Potatoes, 1.5 lb
- 1/2 Stick of Melted Butter
- 1 Pouch of Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
- 8 ounces of sour cream
- 1 2.5 oz Package of Cooked Bacon Crumbles
- 4 Green Onions, White & Green Parts, Sliced
- 1/4 C of Blue Cheese, Crumbled (you can sub shredded sharp cheddar)
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Add your potatoes to 6 cups of water and add a couple of teaspoons of salt in a pot. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 12 minutes. You want the potatoes to be soft, but not falling apart.
- Drain the potatoes and spread on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray.
- Use something to smash each potato into a flat patty. I used a meat tenderizer but you can use a fork or the bottom of a glass. You want to flatten it but try to keep it intact.
- Brush all of the potatoes with the melted butter and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to taste.
- Bake in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Flip half way through and brush the other side with butter.
- While the potatoes bake, mix the bacon, blue cheese and green onions with the 8 ounces sour cream and ranch pouch. You can reserve a little of the bacon and green onions to garnish the top of the dip.
- When the potatoes are done, let them cool on the pan. Serve the potato chips with the dip for a great snack or side dish.
