Units Scale
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp your favorite mustard
  • 10 grinds of pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 round loaf of sour dough bread


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
  2. Cook your bacon to desired crispiness. Drain the bacon on a paper towel.
  3. Add cream cheese, mayo, mustard, and pepper to a mixing bowl and mix until combined and smooth.
  4. Add Swiss cheese and scallions and mix to combine. Then throw in the bacon and mix that in, too.
  5. Scoop out the mix into a shallow baking dish. Bake it uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes until gooey.
  6. In the meantime, cut the top out of your bread loaf and pull out the guts of your bread to make a bread bowl. Tear the bread and arrange it on your platter around the loaf.
  7. When the dip is hot, carefully scrape it in to the bread bowl. Steal a piece of bread to clean off the baking dish for taste testing purposes. Don’t skip this step.
