Baked Potato Dip

Cathy told me about this recipe that she received from her friend, Lee Pinksy. Can I just tell you it's to die for!! I'm not even kidding. You're gonna taste this and say OH MY GOD! Seriously, this is one of those dishes where you look at the ingredients and say "How can this not be good?" I mean, come on! It's everything you'd put on top of a potato, all baked into one fabulous party dip! Why didn't anyone think of this sooner? And it smells HEAVENLY while it's baking in the oven. It's so good you'll want to slap someone!
Thanx Lee!!!

1/2 cup potato flakes
1/2 cup milk

Mix and let sit for a few minutes.

Add 4 oz cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1-2 scallions chopped
1/2 cup cheddar
1/2 cup bacon bits
Spices you like (garlic, salt, pepper, chives, dill)

Put into baking dish.
Top with chopped scallion, 1/2 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup bacon bits
Bake 20 minutes at 350
Smear it on your partner and enjoy!!!

If you have any other favorite baked potato toppings, feel free to add them! Oh, and in case anyone isn't familiar, potato flakes are simply instant mashed potatoes. Great then!

Thanx to Cathy for making it for the picture!

Joe - wasn't that a funny night when we made this dip? I still crack up when I think about the cable repair guy trying it out for us! So funny.

I made this twice in the past week for 2 different occasions and it was a huge hit both times ( with the quaile cousins and nocitos!) before I knew it, all the dip was gone, everyone loved it and it was so easy to make :)
