It’s a dip that’s a little bit retro and a whole lot of yum. No other food brings people together quite like a cob loaf dip.
Yep, the cob loaf dip isn’t going anywhere. I’ve even seen the occasional cob loaf dip gracing professional grazing boards – so CLEARLY it’s here to stay.
Ridiculously easy to make, there’s equal emphasis on the dip and the cob loaf bowl. Pick a beautiful fresh cob loaf, slice the top off to keep as a lid and pull the doughy inside out. Fill the shell with your home made dip and use the chunks of bread as dipping croutons. That’s it – you’ve snatched the hostess of the year crown!
Try these eight cob loaf dip variations at your next party or casual get-together with friends and just wait for the compliments to roll in.
