Cheese and Bacon Cob Loaf Dip

 Untitled facebookzinstagramzpinterestz

This is one of my most asked for dishes when visiting people and bringing a plate to share. You can’t go wrong cob loaf dip.

This recipe was given to me about 8 years ago when cob loaf dips were all the rage (well they still are aren’t they?!). The original recipe includes a small tin of corn and differs slightly to my adaption. The good thing about this recipe is you can change the flavours or increase/decrease the bacon and cheese and it will still be delicious.

    Hi Peta, can this be made ahead of time? I’d like to take to a function but the function is a 3 hrs drive. So I am thinking I could put the dip ingredients together and keep cob separate then assemble and cook through once at function. However if function has no heating facilitaties could it all be assembled and cooked then wrapped and stored in a container or would it end up too soggy??
