Bacon Ranch Loaded Potato Dippers



These were AMAZING!!


Okay, so your probably thinking this is a Football snacking staple....

But folks, we had these for our supper! Weeeeeeeeeeee!! Yes Ma'am!!

They were so darn good, that it was almost a shame to think these morsels are relegated to just "Appetizer" status. 

Heck no, say it ain't so...in our home they have been elevated to Super Star status!
So easy to make and the Ranch dipping sauce is to die for!!
