Awesome is a truism here, we all liked this one. Used the left over bread as dippers and the fact that this is not a cold dip was a nice change of pace. Will be a great treat to take to next potluck at work. Thanx

I made this for our holiday get together and it was AMAZING! I had to make another one in the middle of the party. I used a sourdough round bread and Hormel Real Bacon pieces from a jar and everyone loved it. Thanks!

This was very very good - but I would make 1 minor change. Next time I make this I will saute the onion & garlic first, and then stir that into the cheese/mayo mixture. I used a sourdough loaf, only 6-8 strips of bacon, and 3 cloves garlic. Really good as is too, everyone raved about it.

I made this for my Uncle-In-Law's 60th birthday party (which was also on New Year's Day) and had people offer to PAY me for the recipe! NOW I have requests to bring it to a Super Bowl party this weekend and for a 90th birthday celebration later this month! Only being married now for a little over a year, this has earned major points within my husband's family, which is always an added bonus! (LOL) A million thanks to the godsend who posted this recipe! :)

This was a very easy recipe, and I had everything on hand. I baked it in a pie plate for 30 minutes and I didn't use the bacon. Everyone enjoyed it, some even ate it with a fork, though I served it with chips and got requests for the recipe. It was very oily, but the flavor was good. Next time I think I'll try to drain the grease off, or use "less fat" mayo.

I made this exactly as written and it was fantastic! There were a lot of rave reviews at the social I took it to and many requests for the recipe. I served with sliced baguette pieces. I will definitely be making again for other socials.

I brought this dip to my in-laws house for our New Year's Celebration. It was devoured in about 20 minutes. I used about 1/2 lb of bacon instead and that seemed like enough. I also used about 3/4 Cup of mayo and 1/4 C sour cream as I ran out of mayo. We even ate the bread bowl afterwards. Made for P-A-R-T-Y event. Thx for sharing a great recipe!

Everyone loved this dip, it was gone in 20 minutes! I used cream cheese instead of mayo and a sourdough bread bowl. I didn't even get to taste it cuz it went to fast! I did eat the scraped out and cut into bread bowl a couple hours later, even cold the dip left on pieces of it was really good!! I also only used half a red onion. If you make this be ready to pass out copies of the recipes too!
