Happy New Year!! It’s so hard to believe we are in 2012. I hope you all had a great New Years celebration. We just got home from visiting family in California and came home to party with other family members. One of the appetizers we had at my SIL’s house was from a mutual friend Kelli, she has this awesome recipe for warm and cheesy bacon dip, so I’m sharing it with you. I know your already liking the 2 ingredients mentioned, cheese and bacon…pretty much any combo like that has got to be good right? It gets even better, by adding cream cheese, smooth sour cream and green onion tops to the mixture it’s simply delicious! I couldn’t stop munching on this dip and everyone else loved it too. I liked this dip with some crackers better than sourdough bread because I like a mixture of textures. Give this recipe a try for your next get together, it’s sure to please the crowd.

Warm Creamy Bacon & Cheese Dip

1 16 ounce container of sour cream
1 8 ounce package cream cheese at room temperature
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 ounces of bacon bits (not the fake kind)
1 cup of chopped green onions
1 large round sourdough bread loaf

Step 1: Hollow out the bread loaf by cutting a large circle around the top of the bread but do not all the way through. After cutting around gently grab a hold of the circle you cut and pull out then using a spoon hollow out the rest of the bread to make a nice size bowl.
Step 2: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 3: Combine all the remaining ingredients into a medium size bowl and mix together thoroughly.
Step 4: Scoop the mixture into the bread bowl and then bake uncovered on a cookie sheet  for 25 to 30 minutes.
Serve warm with cut cubes of sourdough bread or crackers.

I don’t even know where to start, Suz..this bacon-cheese dip looks so decadent, just give me the whole sourdough bowl of it. No crackers needed! Now I’ll have to make a ‘Herbie’ bowl and fill ‘it with your luscious dip. I can’t wait to see what delicious treats you come up with throughout 2012, paired with your beautiful photography 🙂 Again, a very happy 2012 to you, my friend! xoxo

Made this yesterday for my football party and it was a hit! I have a sililar recipe but it doesn’t call for sour cream. This is def a keeper. I put some in a round bread bowl and some in a more football shaped multigrain bread bowl.

Thanks Michelle for letting me know, I do love the positive comments that people really enjoyed the recipe. I bet the dip in the football shaped bowl was really cute, great idea.
