How Can You Customise This Recipe?
If you want to make some adjustments to this cob loaf dip recipe then here are some ideas.
- Soup Mix – If you cannot get hold of French Onion Soup Mix you can also use spring vegetable soup mix, or even ranch mix. You could also use dried herbs, onion powder and garlic powder to create a similar effect.
- Cheese – This recipe uses a lot of cheese (which is one the reasons why it tastes so good!). You can switch out the cheeses for whatever you like best. You could use a garlic and herb cream cheese or a spicy red pepper cream cheese instead of a plain one. You could also swap the brie to camembert or a similar type of cheese. Adding some blue cheese would create a different but equally delicious flavour.
- Garnish – If you want to make your cob loaf dip look even more enticing, you could top it with a garnish of fresh parsley.
- Dipping items – The pieces of bread that you make from the soft insides of the cob aren’t the only things you can dip. You could have slices of apple, sticks of celery or carrot, cheesy crackers or breadsticks. Even pieces of grilled meat or seafood on cocktail sticks work well.
- Meat – This recipe uses bacon which goes really well with the cheese. You could switch this out for chorizo if you want a stronger flavour, or leave the meat out altogether if you want a vegetarian meal. If you have any leftover meat such as rotisserie chicken or crab meat, you can add this to the cheese mixture and heat it through in the oven. If you are leaving out the meat but you want to add another filling then a handful of spinach would work really well, or some mushrooms.
- Bread – This recipe can be used to make a cheese and bacon dip without the cob. Simply follow the recipe for the filling and heat it in the oven in a ramekin or oven proof dish.
