I’m so excited to share this hot loaded baked potato dip with you today! It’s the perfect football food and sure to be a hit at any party!
Mmmmmm! This dip is SO good! When you serve this warm dip up with a side of french fries (or even just some potato chips), you have ALL the flavors of a baked potato or potato skins without all the work! Potato skins are a favorite appetizer for many – especially perfect for your football game food spread. But, potato skins can take some serious time and effort to make. So, this dip is a perfect alternative. Plus, it makes enough to feed a crowd!YUM! It smells divine while cooking and the end result is perfect for a party In addition to the great flavor, the simplicity of the recipe is great too! You only need 5 main ingredients to make this a hit. For the base, we used cottage cheese and sour cream from our sponsor Shamrock Farms. We love using Shamrock Farms products as they’re made with with pure, wholesome milk containing no added growth hormones. They’re a local company for us (Arizona family-owned) and we love supporting local! You can even take a tour of their working dairy farm here (during October – May). See?! SO simple! Plus, I love using the cottage cheese as it gives the dish a nice protein boost (since a single serving has up to 13 grams of protein)! In addition to the sour cream and cottage cheese, you just need your other typical baked potato “fixings”. Then, you just mix everything together in a baking dish and then you have one rich, delicious dip! SO easy to make and sooooooo good! Here’s the easy recipe:
Hot Loaded Baked Potato Dip
- 1 16oz container cottage cheese
- 1 16oz container sour cream

Made this dip today, Holy Moly! Sooo, delicious. I definitely will be making this dip for football gatherings & upcoming holiday appetizer table. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Renee! Thanks so much for commenting and letting us know! It is a good one! 🙂
Can the cottage cheese be substituted with cream cheese? The folks I would make this for do not like cottage cheese!
I haven’t tried this dip with cream cheese, but I bet it would still be good. Let us know if you try it!
