Chessy, Bacon, Garlic Bread Bowl

denise hagar


This is a great appetizer or snack. After the the dip is almost gone, its time to tear off chunks of the bowl. There's not enough bread left for dipping so i usually set out additional crackers. I buy a garlic flavored bread at our local store and it enhances the flavor but any type of round bread will do.
