Ham and Swiss Hot Bread Bowl Dip

Renee W.


I'll warn you this isn't the prettiest looking dish when it comes out of the oven, but man is it good!

Use any two loaves of artisan style bread. It would be ideal to have a round french/Italian loaf to bake the dip in and another loaf (that doesn't have to be round) to cut up and use for dip.

I can't always easily find a round loaf of bread, so a larger oblong loaf will work, you may just have some spillage :)

I usually sprinkle in a little garlic and onion powder, but the recipe is great on its own. You can always add a little spice suited to your taste.

This dip is so creamy... and delicious. The ranch dressing and the ham add tons of flavor. It's an easy appetizer for your next party! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Ham and Swiss Hot Bread Bowl Dip


  1. Combine all ingredients. Hollow out one loaf of bread. Put dip in and place on large enough sheet pan to catch any spillage. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
  2. Cube up the other loaf of bread (as well as the bread removed from the loaf used to bake the dip) and toast in oven 7-10 minutes.

    Dip is also good with veggies or crackers.
