Microwave bacon according to package directions until crisp; drain on paper towels. Cool 10 minutes; crumble. Stir together bacon and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours before serving. Garnish, if desired. Serve with crispy, warm waffle fries. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 7 days.
Note: We tested with Oscar Mayer Fully Cooked Bacon.
Made this tonight for a house party tomorrow. Used some hot wings buffalo sauce and our preliminary taste tests are getting 5 stars. Before it even sits all night. We predict it will be a hit tomorrow. Oh and it's great on Ruffles ;)
My family and I really enjoy this dip. We've had it with waffle fries and also with potato chips. I have also made it with green onions and with chives. We like it either way. I have not tried ranch dip; I think the dip tastes great as is.
Made this for a crowd and served it with little mini roasted potatoes. I added a cup of prepared buttermilk ranch dressing along with a half package of dry ranch dressing mix to add more flavor and thin it out a bit. Also doubled the bacon (isn't everything better with more bacon?) It was an incredibly popular appetizer!
