1 large round loaf hawaiian bread
4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 16 oz
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream
½ cup finely chopped green onions
2 cans chopped green chilies, drained
1– 1½ cups chopped ham, crumbled crisply cooked bacon, chopped cooked turkey or a combination


1Cut top from bread and scoop out the center to form a bread bowl. Reserve the top and center. Tear reserved bread center into bite size pieces. Mix the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, green onions, green chilies, and ham in a bowl and mix well. The mixture will be stiff. Spoon into the bread bowl. Replace top and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes. The outside of the bread may blacken a little, but this won't affect the taste. Serve with the reserved bread pieces or tortilla chips for dipping. Serves 8

Note: You may substitute light ingredients, but do not substitute fat free ingredients.
