Warm Bacon Cheese Dip
This hot bacon cheese dip is so addicting! I got the recipe from Elise when we were first married, we make it all the time when we get together with friends. Once you take a bite it is hard to stop.

Warm Bacon Cheese Dip in Sourdough

Save Recipe


  • 1 large round loaf sourdough bread
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (medium or sharp)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 lb. bacon – cooked and crumbled


  • Cut out a circle in the top of the bread and gut out the middle to make a bread bowl (save inside pieces of bread for dipping). In a mixing bowl beat cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and Worcestershire sauce. Then mix in bacon. Pour into the bread bowl.
  • Wrap up the whole thing in aluminum foil. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Serve with extra bread from bowl and crackers.

    (I'm a long time, appreciative reader…)
    I made this dip last night for a bunch of friends and this is the email I got this morning:

    "This dip was the best, yummiest, soul-warming food I've tasted in a LONG time. :)"

    Thanks for sharing!

    I made this dip for a couple different things last week. Everybody LOVED it!

    For some reason, the grocery store where I bought the ingredients for the dip didn't have full sized round loaves. I bought mini-loaves and split the recipe between the two loaves. I used one right away and refrigerated the other one. It was just as amazing a day later!

    All my friends and especially my husband thank you for this recipe!

    My husband said (after devouring almost the whole thing by himself) "This is quite possibly my new favorite food."

    Just had this at a family Christmas Party and LOVED it! I just tracked down the recipe and can't wait to make it for tomorrow night.

    For a gluten-free option I would serve it with veggies… can I bake the dip in a covered dish?

    • Emily says:

      Yes, that would work fine!

      • Joyce says:

        How long would you cook if you do not put in loaf bread.
        I got stuff but no bread .

        • Erica says:

          If you are just doing it in a pan, I would just put it all in a 9×13 baking dish, cover, and bake for 20-40 minutes or until bubbly. You won’t get that “sourdough” taste but it will still be delicious!

    Will baking at home work if I intend to take this to a party 30 min away? Will the bread bowl get soggy while traveling?

    • Erica says:

      It shouldn’t get soggy.. keep it wrapped in tin foil so it stays warm 🙂
