Tastes great & made from leftovers - fantastic
It's been a big night, you had a big party and you wake up the next morning with all of these left overs, but what to do with them.
Or perhaps you are going on a picnic and would like to take something easy and nice to have with you. All you need to do is find a round or oval shaped bread loaf.
Cut a circle in the top of it and hollow it out.
Then mix together 225grams of cream cheese with 500gms ounces of sharp or mild cheddar cheese (grated) and 220ml of sour cream.

The rest of the recipe is really up to you Although, you can add any flavours that you like yourself or perhaps this is where you add in your left over ingredients from last night's party.
We decided to use spinach and shallots for this one.
My mum used to make this when I was a child and I remember her adding in a cup of the previous night's roast meats, sometimes chopped up onions and green peas. Perhaps you might try adding some very finely diced red chillies.I like to add some chopped up mushrooms. Just don't add really watery vegetables like tomatoes as it makes your bread go soggy. If you do not have any left overs at this point, perhaps open a can of creamed corn and mix it through.
Spoon it all back in the bread mixed up and top with some grated cheese, this one was a little low as we hadn't really put many vegies in.
My usual way of making this is to add a cup full of chopped up mushrooms and a tin of creamed corn with finely chopped shallots from the garden and sometimes a finely chopped up leek.
When you have all of your ingredients mixed together, pour into the hollowed out loaf of bread and bake in the oven at 175 degrees (celcius) uncovered for about 30-45 minutes until the top looks well cooked.
The finished Bake is in the image at the top of this article. This one didn't last too long around the hungry hoards.
You can now serve your baked dip hot or cold. It is a great party idea to serve with the bread which you took out of the middle of the loaf or with corn chips as a dip.
