Bacon Cheese Dip in a Bread Bowl

This picture has nothing to do with the post, other than it was taken the same weekend I was introduced to Mrs. Miller and her amazing bacon cheesy creation.

This dip was served at our annual 4th of July gathering. It was so yummy I just stood by the bread bowl and ate it for about an hour, hoping no one would notice. It isn’t healthy but it is delicious! Bringing this to a gathering will guarantee you a repeat invite, as long as you bring the dip.

Marvelous Miller's Bread Dip
  • 1 round loaf of bread (any kind)
  • 12 slices of bacon crisply cooked and crumbled (I use bacon bits from Costco)
  • 8 oz shredded colby/mont. jack cheese
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup grated parm cheese
  • 1 glove garlic, minced
  1. Cut top off bread and remove center, leaving a 1 inch thick shell.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients and spoon into hollowed out bread. Cover with top of bread.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
  4. Serve with crackers.


Sorry no pictures, I was too busy eating…

    My family loves this only we call it BLT dip. Mix in some diced tomatoes and top the whole thing with shredded lettuce. I also will add a little sour cream to the mix if I have any on hand. Mmmmmm.

    OhMyOhMyOhMy, I am CRYING because I want this SO MUCH, RIGHT NOW! What possible excuse can I come up with for serving this a DINNER tomorrow night???

      No excuse needed, just serve it for dinner! Add some carrots on the side and you have a balanced meal, lol!

    ooooooooh, all of my favorite ingredients!! :)

  4. That sounds really good. I bet once you eat one bite you can’t stop.

    This sounds delicious but a quick question. Do you cover the bread with foil? It seems like the bread would get burnt if in the oven for 1 hour. Thanks!

    My arteries are clogging just thinking about this. Which, of course, means that I must make it… and hopefully not just for myself! :X
