Loaded Baked Potato Dip
Snacks and finger foods are always in order. Whether it's a casual event or a high brow holiday party, appetizers warm-up the crowd and keep people happily munching the entire time. This recipe for loaded baked potato dip is from Morgan Murphy's new cookbook called Bourbon and Bacon. It was sent to me to review, and I thoroughly enjoyed the recipes and humor all in one place. In his latest book, Morgan writes about two of the South's favorite obsessions. That's right, bourbon and bacon. In it, he includes 140 mouthwatering recipes using one or both as ingredients. This book is not only informative but it's filled with incredible recipes and enticing pictures, too. The anecdotes and witty comments peppered throughout made me smile and laugh out loud. Often.
Loaded Baked Potato Dip an Appetizer to Remember
If you've never read one of Morgan's cookbooks, you are in for a real treat. His humorous quips in the narrative grab the reader leaving you both delighted and entertained. I love this quote from the book and I think it sums it all up. "Bacon tastes better than skinny feels." Well said Morgan, I completely concur.
"Take your love of baked potatoes and move it from the side dish spread to the appetizer buffet. Serve with waffle fries baked extra crispy for dippers."
