I know what you’re thinking—a recipe for baked potatoes? Not exactly mind-boggling or ground-breaking. But it is. It’s mind-boggling great.
Sure, there is nothing hard or fancy about baked potatoes. But this chive dip is delicious. And even better, it only takes a few minutes to make but converts an ordinary baked potato into something wonderful.
I enjoy using simple, tasty recipes to round out a meal. If every element of the meal was time-consuming and complex, it would be overwhelming to both the cook and eater. This a perfect side dish to balance a fancy entree.
