This is a recipe I found online about 6 years ago. Whenever we are invited anywhere this is always requested. The best part of this recipe is when the dip is gone and the bread has soaked up all the yummy dip. It's heavenly!!! You can use the bread cubes or crackers or veggies to dip. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cut a round hole in the top of the bread bowl and hollow out, making sure not to puncture the sides or bottom of the bread bowl.
  3. Cut up the hollowed out bread into cubes to use for dipping.
  4. Combine the rest of the ingredients with an electric mixer and pour into bread bowl.
  5. Wrap in double thick foil and place on a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for about 1 hour.
  7. Enjoy!

I made this yesterday for my daughter's birthday party - I think 4 people asked for the recipe. It was so easy to make, very, very yummy, both with bread cubes and with wheat thins. The 19 year old was still eating it late last night cold with crackers. This will be a new party staple in our house! I did use 2 packs of Buddig beef instead of the dried beef.

Just made this for my book club tonight. I altered it a bit by using smokey paprika and a dash of ground chipotle. The smokey taste is yummy and will go great with a loaf of fresh baked beer bread. Super recipe for last minute plans as I usually have all the in gredients on hand.

This absolutely saved me for a party dish that I needed!!! I usually make a spinach dip, but I didn't have all the ingredients, but thankfully had all these to make this awesome dip! It was a crowd pleaser and was gone within 15 minutes of my serving it! I didn't have dried beef, so I just used bacon and it worked just as well I think! THANKS and I will be using this one again!
