Warm Bacon Cheese Spread & Award Time!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm sure you all are looking forward to the weekend. This week has been crazy with 3 birthdays. Mine on the 2nd, my Mom's on the 4th, and my brother Joe's is today. By the end of the week everyone is completely caked out. It gets kinda crazy with all the presents & everything, but it is still fun!

This Bacon Spread at #9 is so delicious. My family loves this appetizer and I know it would be perfect for a Holiday Party. Mmm, you won't be dissapointed.



"Warm Bacon Cheese Spread"


Ingredients:
1 round loaf (1 pound) sourdough bread
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) sour cream
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Assorted crackers
DIRECTIONS:
Cut the top fourth off the loaf of bread; carefully hollow out the bottom, leaving a 1-in. shell. Cut the removed bread and top of loaf into cubes; set aside. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the sour cream, cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce until blended; stir in bacon and onions. Spoon into bread shell. Wrap in a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 24 in. x 17 in.). Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until heated through. Serve with cracker and reserved bread cubes. Yield: 4 cups.
