How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Prick holes in potatoes, using fork. Place potatoes onto microwave-safe plate. Microwave, turning once, 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are knife tender. Carefully remove from microwave; refrigerate at least 2 hours to cool.

  2. STEP 2

    Place cheese into food processor bowl fitted with metal blade; pulse until crumbly and sticks together. Add all remaining dip ingredients except bacon; pulse until well mixed. Stir in bacon. Refrigerate until serving time.

  3. STEP 3

    Cut cooled potatoes in half lengthwise. Place potato cut-side down; cut each half into quarters lengthwise.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat gas grill to medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine butter, salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in bowl. Brush each potato wedge with butter mixture; place onto grill. Grill, turning once, 10-14 minutes or until potato wedges are crispy.

  6. STEP 6

    Serve fries with bacon cheese dip.

Tip #1

Potatoes can be cooked up to 24 hours before cutting into wedges. Potato wedges can be brushed with butter mixture and refrigerated up to 12 hours before grilling.
