How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Cut a hole from the top of the bread round about 5 inches across. Make a "top cap" for the loaf, set aside.
  • Note: If you want it more decorative, make it a zig-zag cut around.
  • Scoop out most of the inside of the loaf, leaving enough on the bottom and sides to make it a "bowl".
  • Use the bread "guts"as cubes for dipping or save for later use as stuffing.
  • In a skillet, sauté the scallions and garlic in butter until the scallions are wilted. Be careful NOT to burn the scallions!!!
  • In a medium bowl, put cream cheese, scallions, garlic, sour cream and cheddar cheese.
  • Mix well.
  • Fold in artichoke hearts or spinach.
  • Fill the hollowed out bread bowl with the mixture.
  • Replace the top cap of bread bowl.
  • Wrap the bowl in double thickness of aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours.
  • Remove foil and put bread bowl on serving platter surrounded with garlic bread, bread cubes, and/or crackers.
  • When the dip is gone, you're left with the bread that has really soaked up all the flavors from the dip. Break in up and go to town!!!!
