Cheese and Bacon Cob Loaf Dip

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This Cheese and Bacon Cob Loaf Dips is always a crowd pleaser when I make it.  I make it in my thermomix, but have also made it via the stove top prior to having my thermomix, so I have included both recipes below for you.

What I like most about this recipe is the dip is hot which melts the cheese!!  Plus it can feed a hungry crowd well by adding an extra french bread stick.
