Welcome to the roaring twenties my friends!

McCain Dip’N Wedges
Everyone loves steak fries, right? Well, why not transform them into the perfect appetizer dipping companion? I baked up some Dip'n Wedges for my family to serve with as an appetizer with dips. Who ever said potato wedges HAVE to be a side dish?
The unique v-shape makes it perfect for dipping or loading up with toppings and it is a fun alternative to the same ol’ chips and crackers we have dipped a million times. You can really get creative with these, and I’ll give you a few suggestions below.
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
A decadent twice baked potato is one of my favorite side dishes of all time. So when I discovered these Dip'n Wedges my first instinct was to use them to reinvent the loaded baked potato. This chunky dip with brimming with your favorite baked potato toppings like smoky bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, green onions, and sour cream. When paired with Dip'n Wedges you have a fun new twist on the classic twice baked potato.
How to Make Baked Potato Dip
My baked potato dip recipe is exceedingly simple to prepare. The bacon needs to be cooked and crumbled, then everything gets combined in a dish. I recommend mixing together the softened cream cheese and sour cream first though, it is easier to ensure all of the lumps are gone.
This is a hearty and chunky dip, if you want it to be a little lighter in texture you can add additional sour cream. Feel free to jazz it up with a ½ ounce of dry ranch seasoning as well if desired.
