Sour cream Unthickened cream One packet of French onion soup powder Cooked asparagus
Cut the middle out of the cobb loaf so that you have a large, edible bowl. Rip the inner section into smaller pieces, place everything on a baking tray and bake on a low heat while you are making your dip.
The ratio of unthickened cream to sour cream is 2:1, so if you are using one cup of unthickened cream, you will use half a cup of sour cream. The amount you use will depend on the size of your cobb loaf.
Pour your cream and sour cream into a blender or food processor and pulse until it reaches a smooth, creamy consistency. Slowly add your French onion powder; the flavour can be overpowering, so taste the mixture frequently to make sure you haven't added too much. Add your asparagus, chopped into small pieces, and blend all the ingredients together.
Remove your cobb loaf from the oven and pour in the dip. Serve immediately.
You can use a French onion dip instead of unthickened cream and the powdered soup mix.
Some people prefer to use spinach or creamed corn in place of asparagus.
Others feel that it's not a real cobb dip without cheese. Try grated cheddar, parmesan or ricotta.
