Party Panache, Stuffed Bread Bowl Dip

This is DD’s recipe, she’s kinda famous for it


We kid her a lot because she used to cook all the time, trying out recipes, and even wrote 2 mini cookbooks with a friend


Then she got a demanding new job, a darling husband and a bouncing baby girl, and now she doesn’t have time to cook at all~


But she surprised us over the 4th by making her fabulous Bread Bowl Dip and she said I could share it with y’all ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s a “kitchen sink” kind of a recipe, you can throw just about anything in~


Creamy, cheesy, spicy and good


and the bread bowl just makes it fun and easy to serve


This is a great dip to take to a party, it’s already in a bowl!


Bake it covered with foil and allow extra time, it might take over an hour to get nice and hot

Remove the lid [and hide it for yourself ๐Ÿ™‚ ] and serve with tortilla chips, toast points, or crackers

Stuffed Bread Bowl Dip

this creamy cheesy spicy dip in a bread bowl is a show stopper!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Course Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 8


  • 1 1/2 cups diced deli ham
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 1 4 oz can chopped green chilies drained and patted dry
  • 1 4 oz jar chopped pimento drained and patted dry or use chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion diced
  • 1/2 cup green onion sliced
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 round loaf of sourdough or french bread


  • Preheat oven to 375. Combine ham, with remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and season to taste.
  • Cut a slice off the top of the bread round to expose the soft interior. Reserve bread top. Using your fingers or a knife, carefully remove the soft insides of the bread loaf, so all that remains is an empty bread shell. Reserve bread crumbs for a later use.
  • Put dip into bread bowl and replace โ€œlid.โ€ Wrap the whole loaf tightly in foil.
  • Bake on a pan for 1 hour or longer until dip is heated through. Serve with sturdy chips or toast points.

    I love anything in a bread bowl but I haven’t made it at home yet. I make bread and have made a few bread bouls but I always eat and never think about stuffing it or anything. I love the cheesy melty goodness of this recipe.
