A fave savoury dip


  • 1 round crusty cobb loaf

  • 3 rashers of bacon, chopped

  • 1 onion

  • 1 tablespoon of chopped shallots

  • 2 teaspoons of light olive oil

  • 1 x 440g can creamed corn

  • 1 x 440g can corn kernels

  • 300g sour cream

  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives

  • cracked black pepper

  • cayenne pepper


  • 1.

    Fry chopped bacon, add onion with olive oil and fry until soft. Add shallots and fry lightly. Place in large bowl.

  • 2.

    Add corn, sour cream and cheese and mix well.

  • 3.

    Slice the top from the cobb loaf (this will act as a 'lid' to your dip 'bowl'.) Pull out the soft bread from inside the loaf and pull apart or cut into chunks.

  • 4.

    Add dip mixture to the cobb loaf 'bowl', put on oven tray along with the 'lid' and chunks of bread. Bake in a moderate-to-hot oven for approximately 30 minutes or until dip is hot and bread is crunchy.

  • 5.

    Garnish the top with some additional fried and drained bacon and chopped shallots.


The bacon and corn can be swapped for spinach and cream cheese - or salmon - lots of choices for a change - you can use camenbert cheese too
