"I served this recipe at a holiday party. It was the first appetizer to disappear, and was one of the easiest to prepare. With all that pork bacon, cheese, and a bread bowl - where else to put this recipe but the Midwestern U.S. states."
Serving Size: 1 (122 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"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! :)"
"I made this over the weekend while everyone was watching football, it was a big hit! ANd of course a keeper too."
"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."
"Had this receipe Christmas Eve at a Party- This is truly amazing !! yummy"
"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!"
"this was made for my bridal shower and it was a very big hit"
"REALLY enjoyed this! I made this for a party and everyone raved about it. I used sharp cheddar, grated the onion and served it in an earthenware crock as I couldn't find a whole bread suitable for this recipe. I served it with pices of roasted garlic ciabatta bread, pretzels and grape tomatoes. Just lovely!!"
"I made it for Thanksgiving. Only change I made was use a little less onion than called for about 1/2 cup and really chopped it fine. Almost liquified it. And I used Shepherder bread instead of Rye. But it was such a hit it was gone within 20 minutes and EVERYONE wanted the recipe. Next time I'll be making two instead of one. REALLY REALLY GOOD. And easy to make! Definately recommend. Eli"
"This was GONE, GONE, GONE by the end of the day. I used Sour Cream rather than Mayo b/c my husband HATES mayo and can taste it a mile away. I served it with Recipe#93429 (minus the caraway seeds b/c I was out) and I had people fighting over the bottom of the bowl."
"This is an awesome tasting dip....however, I baked it in a casserole because I didn't have a bread bowl at the time, and it produced an entire cup of grease! Guess we don't realize how much gets absorbed by the bread bowl. Will definitely make again, although I think I'll use a bread bowl and some low-fat mayo. Thanks!!"
"What is it about bread bowls that people adore so much? You can put almost anything in a bread bowl and people will devour it! *lol* This was a fabulous recipe, one we will definetly be making for the next get together! (If I can wait that long...)"
"This dip was great! Everyone at our party loved it. I left out the onion and used 1/2 tsp onion powder. I also used bacos instead of bacon. The only problem I notices was as I baked the dip, the bread got very hard. I used pumpernickel, so I don't know if that was the reason or not. Other than that, this was really good!"
"Everyone at Bunco raved on and on about this it was my biggest hit of all of my appetizers. I would definitley double this recipe for next time."
