Who doesn't like bacon and cheese. This is great for all sorts of occasions. I do recommend using the best cheese possible, no shaker parmesan, I prefer shredded it from a block of imported. This helps with the grease that others have talked about. Also, the bread bowl help absorb some of the oils from the cheese. My family prefers to add more bacon and a touch of garlic powder. This is a fun one to play with.

This was a big hit at the SuperBowl party but we didn't use the bread dowl, just warmed it in a dish in the oven and then served it with the bread in a fondue pot to stay warm.
