Cheese and Bacon Cob Loaf

This recipe takes you back to the 70s where finger food was all the rage. You don't have to be having a key swap party to enjoy the cheesy goodness of a cob loaf dip.

Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Makes: 8-10

250g bacon
1 large onion
250g cream cheese
350g cream
300g ricotta cheese
100g tasty cheese
1 white cob loaf


  • Preheat oven to 180ÂșC.

  • Slice off the top of your cob loaf to create a lid. Don't cut too far down the loaf or you won't be able to fit as much dip inside.

  • Pull the soft bread from the inside of the loaf. Be careful with the bread around the bottom of the loaf; if the bottom of your loaf isn't particularly crisp you can end up making a hole on the base.

  • I like to keep the bread pieces in an airtight container until I'm ready to use them again.

  • Dice your onion and bacon and fry until onion is translucent and bacon is very lightly browned.

  • Add the bacon and onion to a bowl and add all other ingredients apart from the bread.

  • Mix well. You might need to use a wooden spoon to squash some of the cream cheese if it is too difficult to stir in. I always roughly dice my cream cheese before adding it.

  • Fill your cob load with the cheese mixture.

  • Replace the lid on the top of the cob load, and wrap the loaf in foil.

  • Place the loaf on a tray in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 10 minutes.

  • Add the left over bread pieces to your tray and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the bread pieces are nice and crisp.

  • Serve the cob loaf on a platter with the extra bread pieces for dipping. You can also use other dippers like carrot, celery, cucumber or crackers.
