Cheesy Baked Dip – an appetiser that is sure to please a crowd

Delicious as an appetiser for a crowd..

I first ate this at a friend’s house a few years ago – it was so delicious and was consumed by the crowd quickly!

The ‘crowd’ was mainly young school-age kids who sat around the kitchen table talking and laughing about assignments, school, sport and life in general.

So I know this recipe is a good appetiser for kids and lets be honest, the adults enjoyed it too!

It is so simple to make – and if you have more than a few guests coming over to your place, perhaps make a couple of these Cheesy Baked Dip’s. One won’t be enough 🙂


  • 225g sour cream
  • 225g cream cheese
  • 2-3 cups cheddar cheese, grated (sharp or mild)
  • 1 whole chopped green chili
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 250g chopped bacon,
  • 1 round bread loaf, hollowed out

Mix first seven ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon into the hollowed out bread loaf. Bake at 350° degrees uncovered for about an hour.

Serve with the leftover bread or some toasted vowels bread cut into fingers.

Happy ‘snacking’ xx

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
