Cheesy Baked Party Dip

Cheesy Baked Party Dip
1 Hr

It's the party dip that everyone gravitates to, and you can't do without! Our mouthwatering Cheesy Baked Party Dip served inside a hollowed out bread loaf is always a hit!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (1-pound) loaves pumpernickel or rye bread, unsliced
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cut into small chunks and softened
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (14-ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut off quarter top of breads; reserve tops. Scoop out most of the soft inside portion of loaves and save for dipping.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, scallions, garlic, and Cheddar cheese; mix well. Fold in artichoke hearts.
  3. Fill hollowed-out breads with mixture. Replace top of each bread and wrap in double thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  4. Bake 1 hour, or until hot. Remove foil and top of bread and serve, using reserved bread chunks for dipping.



  • You can use a 2-pound oval-shaped bread instead of the 2 smaller loaves.

  • You may want to serve this up with some crisp veggies, too.

  • The best part of this dish is when the dip is gone and all you have left is the bread, which is soaked in all those delicious ingredients. Just break it up and pass it around!

  • We've got lots of great dip recipes on our website, so check 'em out. One of our favorites is our Black Bean Dip.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I followed the directions exactly. What I ended with looked NOTHING like the picture. The mixture had very little cheese taste, and puffed up like rice. I was very disappointed considering the cost of ingredients and my time. The dip would not stick to the dippers. I had to throw the mess away. I will never make this again! I have deleted it from my files and from my head.

Then why the heck did you give this a 5-star rating??!! I just don't understand people like this!

Made this for a Christmas party, everyone loved it! I used the double aluminum foil wrap as suggested, however, I will omit this in the future. Ended up taking off a layer after about 70 min of baking.

Just love the dip, mainly.

I made this and it turned out dry and grainy. What did I do wrong?

mushrooms or crabmeat or both would go good inthe place of the artichokes


what about canned tiny shrimp?

Delicious!! We loved this.

Do I have to add the Artichokes? My kids will not eat them? Any suggestions?

Fresh Mushroom, or and canned water-chestnut sliced
