Cheese Bread Dip

The list of appetizers keeps going! All of these posts from the past few days are things I made for my purse party over the weekend.

Unfortunately, I got so wrapped up in the party that I forgot to take pictures of everything! The other recipes I just took a picture of the leftovers (which is why the pics are so wonderful!) but this one you really need the actual photo before it's eaten.

So imagine a bread bowl with cheesy looking dip in it and that's what it sort of looks like!

Cheese Bread Dip
8oz cream cheese (I used lite)
8oz sour cream (I used lite)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 stick of butter
1 package onion soup mix
rye/pumpernickel round loaf of bread

1. In saucepan, melt all ingredients (besides bread!), saving a little bit of soup mix to sprinkle on top.

2. When melted, pour into hollowed out bread and sprinkle leftover onion soup mix on top.

3. Bake at 350 until it bubbles. (appx 30min).

The only "issue" with this recipe is that I never get it bubbling! My Aunt gave me the recipe and she says it takes forever to get to that point. So I think I baked mine about 40min and then just served it and it was more than warm enough.

This is very good and a nice variation from the typical dill dip in the carved out bread. I usually buy 2 loaves of bread for this-one to hollow out (and cut up what you take out) and one loaf to cut into pieces. And the best part? Eating the bowl with the leftover dip in it-yum!
