Ingredients

  • 2 1/4

    pounds Yukon gold or other yellow-flesh potatoes, peeled and quartered

  • 4

    slices hickory- or applewood-smoked bacon

  • 1

    10 ounce carton cream cheese for cooking

  • 1

    cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (4 ounces)

  • 1/2

    cup sour cream

  • 1/4

    cup chopped green onions (2)

  • 1/4

    teaspoon garlic salt

  • Sour cream-and-onion potato chips or sweet pepper wedges

Directions

Directions In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in enough boiling, lightly salted water to cover for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; reserve 1 tablespoon of the crumbled bacon for topping. In a large bowl combine the remaining crumbled bacon, cream cheese for cooking, 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese, the sour cream, green onions, and garlic salt. Press cooked potatoes through a ricer* onto the cheese mixture; stir gently to combine. Spoon potato mixture into a 1-1/2- or 2-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for about 2 hours or until heated through (160 degrees F). Top dip with the remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese and the reserved bacon. Serve immediately or keep warm, covered, on warm-heat or low-heat setting for up to 2 hours. Serve with potato chips. *If you don't have a ricer, mash potatoes with a potato masher until fluffy. Bacon, Blue Cheese, and Potato Dip: Prepare as directed above, except substitute 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 ounces) for the cheddar cheese. Serve with barbecue-flavor potato chips or celery sticks instead of sour-cream-and-onion-flavor potato chips and sweet pepper wedges.
