Would you believe that I’ve never actually made a Cobb Loaf Dip before? Crazy I know. A couple of weekends ago I decided this was something I needed to rectify ASAP and had a go at making one to go with our regular Sunday Lunch BBQ.
I chose to try a Bacon and Cheese Cobb Loaf recipe that I found scribbled in the margins of an old recipe book. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s sooooo adaptable and you really add (or omit) whatever ingredients you like.
Thermomix Bacon and Cheese Cobb Loaf Instructions
Line a tray with baking paper and preheat your oven to 190 degrees.
Cut a circle on top of your Cobb Loaf and carefully remove the ‘lid’. Scoop out the soft bread inside the Cobb Loaf and set aside.
Place the bacon and spring onions into your Thermomix bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 6.
Add 20g of olive oil and cook for 3 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 1 REVERSE.
Add the cream cheese, thickened cream, sour cream, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese along with salt and pepper and combine for 20 seconds on speed 3 REVERSE.
Spoon the dip mixture into the hollowed Cob Loaf and put the lid back on. Cover the top of the Cobb Loaf with foil and place it onto the prepared baking tray and into the oven to bake for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes, remove the foil and add the bread pieces to the tray. Bake for a further 10 – 15 minutes or until the bread pieces turn golden brown.
Apart from a mild cheesy landslide which developed while the Cobb Loaf was in the oven, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and my three taste testers also gave it a big tick of approval.
