Bacon Cheese Dip in a Bread Bowl

This picture has nothing to do with the post, other than it was taken the same weekend I was introduced to Mrs. Miller and her amazing bacon cheesy creation.

This dip was served at our annual 4th of July gathering. It was so yummy I just stood by the bread bowl and ate it for about an hour, hoping no one would notice. It isn’t healthy but it is delicious! Bringing this to a gathering will guarantee you a repeat invite, as long as you bring the dip.

Marvelous Miller's Bread Dip


  • 1 round loaf of bread (any kind)
  • 12 slices of bacon crisply cooked and crumbled (I use bacon bits from Costco)
  • 8 oz shredded colby/mont. jack cheese
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup grated parm cheese
  • 1 glove garlic, minced


  1. Cut top off bread and remove center, leaving a 1 inch thick shell.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients and spoon into hollowed out bread. Cover with top of bread.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
  4. Serve with crackers.


Sorry no pictures, I was too busy eating…

    My family loves this only we call it BLT dip. Mix in some diced tomatoes and top the whole thing with shredded lettuce. I also will add a little sour cream to the mix if I have any on hand. Mmmmmm.

  2. OhMyOhMyOhMy, I am CRYING because I want this SO MUCH, RIGHT NOW! What possible excuse can I come up with for serving this a DINNER tomorrow night???

      No excuse needed, just serve it for dinner! Add some carrots on the side and you have a balanced meal, lol!

  3. ooooooooh, all of my favorite ingredients!! 🙂

  4. That sounds really good. I bet once you eat one bite you can’t stop.

  5. This sounds delicious but a quick question. Do you cover the bread with foil? It seems like the bread would get burnt if in the oven for 1 hour. Thanks!

    • No need to cover, it gets a little brown but that just makes the bowl a little more crispy. Always use the bread ( from the interior of the bowl) and toasted and the bowl itself, as dippers, this bowl will not have anything left of itself in the end. That’s how wonderful it is
