Expert Tips

  • Crack dip is loaded with all the flavors you can’t stop eating: sour cream, dill & buttermilk-spiked Ranch seasoning, green onions and crumbled bacon. Dip in off-the-shelf veggie chips or roast up some sliced fresh potatoes (use skin-on russets, sliced ¼-inch thick—drizzle with oil and generously season with garlic salt) in a 425°F oven until very tender. Cool, then getting dipping.
  • Use pre-cooked slices of bacon, reheated in the microwave just until crisp. Chop or crumble into small bits.
  • Use a Cheddar cheese with some personality, like a sharp Cheddar, or play with other boldly flavored varieties like smoked Gouda, dilled Havarti, or even go all out with some crumbled blue cheese.
