Again looking for a cheesy alternative, I remembered the bread and a dip my mom's cousin used to make - not your regular spinach dip with sour cream and Knorr Vegetable Soup mix, but a more robust dip with cream cheese and cheddar. It was served inside a hollowed-out round pumpernickel with chunks of the innards and another bread for dipping.
I lost the recipe years ago, but decided to give it a try anyway. It might not be exactly like hers, but it tasted pretty darn good.
