The Wedge Kettle Chip Dip

I was recently asked by Kettle Brand Chips to create an original recipe chip dip for one of their different varieties of Kettle Brand Chips. This task allowed me to indulge myself in the flavors that I love. As a new father, my wife and I don’t get to go out as much as we used to. Our favorite date night was a trip to the steak house which included a nice wedge salad to start things off. The iceberg lettuce topped with tomatoes, blue cheese and bacon was a flavor that we haven’t had in a long time. So I decided to turn our favorite indulgence into a chip dip that we can enjoy every day.

The Wedge Dip

After varying the ingredients and amounts, I came up with an extremely tasty dip that reflected our favorite flavors from a wedge salad. The dip is not a light dip and requires a real potato chip to handle the indulgent dip. Kettle Brand Chips can handle the pressure of lifting up this awesome dip. Kettle Brand cooks real, unpeeled potatoes in small batches for a superior taste and a signature crunch that allows them to be the perfect match to this hearty dip while others crack and crumble under the pressure.

The Wedge Kettle Chip Dip

Add the sour cream, mayonnaise and milk to a bowl and mix until creamy and smooth.

Mix until smooth

Add the Worcestershire sauce, parsley, garlic powder and salt. Mix to combine.

Add the seasonings

Finally add the bacon bits, blue cheese and tomato and fold them into the dip.

Add the bacon, blue cheese and tomatoes

Make sure to reserve a 1/4 tsp of each of these to top the dip before serving. This little bit will highlight the ingredients so that your guests can see the flavors of the dip.  A big tip when entertaining is to make everything appealing to the eye.

All Mixed Up

Refrigerate the dip for at least 4 hours before serving.  This is a crucial step as it was soften the parsley and cause the dip to thicken up.

The Dip

Finally scoop into a serving dish and top with the reserved tomato, blue cheese and bacon.  I prefer to serve these with classic sea salt kettle chips, but the dip will work with any of the 14 varieties of Kettle Chips.

A loaded chip

The bacon and blue cheese added a nice contrast to the fabulous crunch of the Kettle Chip.  This dip is awesome and really drives home the wedge flavor.  Now you can indulge yourself everyday with the taste and flavors of a steakhouse.

    I love fruit dip made with strawberry cream cheese and marshmallow fluff!!

    • I have always been just a traditional nacho cheese fan. Especially with a thick kettle chip. But your dip sounded pretty good, what if you used baconnaise for added bacon flavor

  2. My favorite dip is a Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip – requires lot of chopping but oh soooooo good

    • Barbara n – I too love a nice seven layer tex mex dip. I agree it is a lot of chopping, but it totally worth it.

  3. My favorite is cream cheese-based hot dip with chopped tomatoes and chilis. The colors are perfect for the holidays and it is so warm and tasty.

  4. I think those steakhouse wedge salads are to die for and as a result, I am enthralled over your dip! All that great stuff packed into one dip, clever, Rex.

  5. My favorite dip of all-time is a taco dip consisting of Kraft Old English cheese, cream cheese, taco seasoning, and a can of Chili No Beans. That being said, when it comes to dips with Kettle Chips I have only ever indulged in sour cream and onion. As a result I look forward to trying this very tasting looking new culinary treat!!!

    I love mexican five layer dip! In a casserole dish layer from the bottom up: refried beans, chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, sour cream and top with cilantro and jalapenos!


    I don't know but looking at this dip is making me hungry… I usually buy pre-made Sour Cream & Onion dip, but I can't say I "have" a for-sure favorite… Thanks for the giveaway!
