Warm Bacon Cheese Spread

Delicious party dip! Every time I make it there is never any left, and everyone is always asking me for the recipe. It's so popular I've never even had time to take photos of it, so this is a stock photo.

Italian Bread Bowl



1 loaf round sourdough bread or 1 Italian Bread Bowl
1 - 8 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups or 12 oz. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup green onion, chopped finely
2 cups sharp shredded/grated cheddar cheese
12 oz. bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled


In a mixer, blend the cream cheese on low until softened. Add sour cream and Worcestershire sauce, mix well. Next add bacon and onion and mix well.

Cut the top and hollow out bread bowl (leave 1/4" minimum around the edges). 

Cut the top and inside bread into bread hunks for dipping if you want or discard. 

Spoon cheese mixture into bread bowl and wrap entirely in aluminum foil. 

Bake 325 for one hour or more until thoroughly heated. 

Serve with bread hunks, crackers, fresh veggies, whatever you want.
