If you’re here, my guess is you’ve probably seen this recipe pinned on Pinterest? It is my #1 most viewed recipe of all of the 700+ recipes on Tried and Tasty. I’m so happy you are here and even more happy you want to try this recipe! This is the perfect party dip! It’s so good and super easy. Best part about it is you can eat the bowl 🙂 The flavors blended wonderfully together and was yummy paired with bread cubes (from the inside), or what I used was a french baguette thinly sliced and that was great too. For the chopped bacon, I just used bacon bits that I had on hand from Costco (actually, I think they are called “real bacon pieces”). Stick around, if you like this recipe I’m sure you’ll find others you’ll love as well!
I’ve found that this is perfect for any holiday or party: New Years Eve, Super Bowl Sunday, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas and anything in between. Because it’s an hour in the oven you’ll want to be sure you plan ahead – but my suggestion is to have it hot out of the oven as soon as you’re ready to eat it. It’s best when it’s super fresh! Want to make it ahead of time? You can mix up the filling and hollow out your bread the day before. Add the filling an hour before you’re ready to serve! Happy dip eating 🙂
Cheesy Baked Dip
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 16 oz. cheddar cheese, grated (sharp or mild)
- 4 oz. chopped green chilies
- Green onion (suit your own taste)
- 1 c. chopped ham
- 1/2 pound chopped cooked bacon
- 1 round bread loaf, hollowed out *a pre-baked loaf you'll find in the bakery. I used a sourdough loaf.
- Mix first seven ingredients together and put into the hollowed out bread loaf. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for one hour. Serve with leftover bread or chips.
- You may read the recipe and not believe your eyes, but YES you will bake it for 60 minutes and it will be just fine! Trust me, worked perfect for me!
- The chopped ham is already pre-packaged that way. It’s usually in the meat/freezer section with regular hams. It is pre-cooked. Or.. if you can’t find it, chopping up a pre-cooked ham would work too – but try finding the chopped for you already first. If you can’t hunt it down see if a store employee can help!
