My famous creamy Bacon and Cheese Cob Loaf is the ultimate comfort food! The Cheese and Bacon Dip can be made up to two days in advance and then added to your Cob Loaf before popping into the oven. To make this recipe you just need EIGHT easy ingredients and both regular and Thermomix instructions are included.

Why you will love this Cob Loaf Recipe:

  • Easy to make – it takes no time at all to mix the ingredients together for this recipe, the hardest part is waiting for it to bake!
  • Versatile – you can mix it up when it comes to the ingredients for the filling, don’t have any mozzarella cheese? You can just use tasty instead. Wanting a vegetarian version? Simply omit the bacon.
  • Make in advance – you can mix up the Cheese and Bacon filling and store in the fridge for up to two days before you plan to serve – perfect if you are entertaining!

Cob Loaf Ingredients

You will need 8 basic ingredients to make this recipe:

  • Sour Cream – you can use a light version if you wish.
  • Cheese – I like to use both mozzarella and tasty (cheddar cheese) for this recipe, however you can also use colby or parmesan cheese and you can certainly alter the ratios of cheese if you wish.
  • Bacon – I prefer to use short cut bacon for this recipe.

How to Make a Bacon and Cheese Cob Loaf

  1. Cut a hole in the top of your loaf and use a spoon to scoop out the filling – make sure you keep the bread pieces!
  2. Roughly chop the bacon and spring onion pieces and cook until golden.
  3. In the meantime, combine the remaining filling ingredients before adding the bacon and onions. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the filling and place into your oven, bake until golden on top and the filling has warmed through when carefully tested.

  • To save time, you can pre-cook your bacon and spring onions and store in your fridge until needed.
  • This recipe can be made the day before it’s needed, to re-heat just cover it in foil and bake in a 190 degree oven until the dip is heated through.
  • It’s best to use softened cream cheese as it will make mixing the ingredients together much easier.
