Award-Winning Cheesy Loaf Recipe from the Kansas Soybean Commission

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- LOADED CHEESY LOAF

8 ounces soy sour cream
8 ounces soy cream cheese
16 ounces grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
½ cup green onions chopped
1 cup chopped ham
½ pound bacon, fried and crumbled
1 ½ pounds rounded bread loaf, hollowed out

Combine in mixing bowl soy sour cream, soy cream cheese, grated Cheddar cheese, green chilies, green onions, ham and bacon until blended. Spoon mixture into the hollowed out bread loaf. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for one hour or until nicely browned. Makes about 6 cups filling.

Tips:
The “lid” of the hollowed out bread can be buttered and toasted in oven then sliced into pieces to spread the filling on. Bread removed from hollowed loaf can be placed on baking tray and toasted in oven to serve with the filling.

Make vertical cuts into the wall of the bread after it bakes or tear the bread and dip or spread the filling on the toasted bread.

This is a hearty comfort food! Add a salad for a great fast, easy and satisfying meal!
