    I have made this cob loaf a few times and varied it according to what ingredients I have on hand and each time it is perfect! Everyone loves it so much even if I cant come to a BBQ or Dinner they still ask me to make one!

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 round cob loaf
    • 125g grated tasty cheese
    • 3-4 bacon rashers, hopped
    • 1/2 or whole red onion, diced (depending on your taste)
    • 2 or 3 shallots chopped
    • 1/2 red capsicum diced
    • 250g sour cream
    • 440g tin creamed corn
    • 310g tin corn kernels
    • 1/2tsp cayenne pepper (depending on your tolerance to spice)
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Fry the bacon and onion in a frying pan with a little oil or butter until soft. Add the shallots and let them heat through. Remove from heat.
    2. Combine cheese, bacon, onion, shallots, sour cream, capsicum, corn kernels, creamed corn, season with salt and pepper and add cayenne pepper - it doesn't make it very spicy just gives it a nice taste.
    3. Slice the top off the cob loaf and pull the bread out of the middle.
    4. Fill the hollowed out cob with the dip and bake for about 30mins in a moderate oven. Chop the removed bread and toast in the oven to serve with dip.

    I'm sorry. I really wanted to love this, but it was very bland. I actually liked the taste of it better before it was baked. Also, once baked it became very "soupy". Even adding a good bit of hot sauce to the extra (that wouldn't fit in the cob loaf) didn't do much to help.  -  28 May 2013
