This is a robust and delicious hot beef and cheese dip made with cream cheese, dried beef, and green onions all mixed together and stuffed into a round sourdough loaf or Shepard's loaf for a beautiful presentation. Serve with toasted bread round or crackers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean green onions thoroughly and trim ends.
  2. Put in food processors and finely chop.(about 3-4 pulses until minced--don't liquify them!).
  3. Slice dried beef in large strips and add to food processor and mince.
  4. Add cream cheese, worcestershire, and garlic to food processor.
  5. Blend thoroughly in food processor until smooth.
  6. Take Shepard's loaf and cut a circle on the top large enough to make a lid that covers aprox. 2/3 of the top and remove(don't discard).
  7. Hollow out bread to make a bowl for the dip, careful not to hollow out to much and punch a hole through the bread round--(save the soft bread bits for dipping later!).

  9. Wrap in foil and bake at 350 for 45-60min.
