Skillet Bacon-Cheddar Potato Dip

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in enough boiling, lightly salted to cover for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; reserve 1 tablespoon of the crumbled bacon for topping.
  3. In a large bowl combine remaining crumbled bacon, cream cheese, 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 seasoned or generously greased 8- to 9-inch cast-iron skillet.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 160 degrees F. Remove from the oven.
  5. Preheat broiler. Top potato mixture with remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese and reserved 1 tablespoon crumbled bacon. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve dip with potato chips.
