Why I Love This Recipe

My entire family enjoys this cheese dip, and my friends always request I bring it to gatherings.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 round loaf (1 pound) pumpernickel bread
2 jars (5 ounces each) sharp American cheese spread
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
1/2 cup real bacon bits


Cut top fourth off loaf of bread; carefully hollow out bottom, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. Cube removed bread; set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine cheese spread and cream cheese.

Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in beer. Microwave, uncovered, 20 seconds longer. Stir in bacon.

Fill bread shell with cheese dip. Serve with reserved bread cubes.
