Bread Bowl Appetizer

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + chilling

Makes

6 cups dip

"This dip is a favorite at potlucks and picnics," says Melissa Cook of Chico, California. "Although it's terrific as an appetizer, we often turn the creamy mixture into a sandwich by spreading it on slices of crusty baguettes."

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups sour cream
  • 1-3/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 pound deli pastrami, finely chopped
  • 1/4 pound deli corned beef, finely chopped
  • 1/4 pound deli ham, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 unsliced round bread (1 pound)
  • Assorted crackers or fresh vegetables

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; cover and chill for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. To serve dip, cut the top fourth off the loaf of bread. Carefully hollow out bottom of loaf, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. (Save top and removed bread for another use.) Fill shell with dip. Serve with crackers and/or vegetables.
