I have made this recipe and it is great but try putting dip inside the bowl and baking for 2 hours on 250 or until center is good and hot and bread bowl is starting to crisp. Excellent.
It was OK. I could use more dried beef and maybe some garlic in it. The dill was a little too much for me too.
Very easy and very tasty recipe. My dinner party guests were very complimentry of the presentation in the bread bowl as well.
Glad I took Cindy's advice-can't imagine this cold. I was short on time so I wrapped in foil, & baked @400 for 1hr. Heed the warning re: dill. When I do again, I may try with dill seed instead of weed. If anyone does, please post outcome. Only got a four star from me--Only chocolate gets a *****.
