GLUTEN FREE COB LOAF DIP – 3 WAYS

Who is a fan of cob dip?? I certainly am and my all time favourite is the spinach cob my Mum makes for any special occasion. It is so full of flavour and hearty goodness with a creamy filling of cream cheese, sour cream, spinach, water chestnuts for crunch and french onion soup mix. That’s the kicker right there and the reason why I haven’t enjoyed cob loaf for a long time. I have been unable to find a french onion dry soup or spring veg dry soup mix.

I wanted to do a video on individual cob loaf dips and I knew that I just couldn’t do the video without including my favourite. What could I use as a substitute? It was quite simple really, just replace the soup mix and the sour cream with french onion dip. Yes, I know, it’s genius. You can thank me later.

My next challenge was the bread itself. I don’t know about you, but I have not been able to find a gluten free cob loaf anywhere. Not wanting to be defeated, I put my thinking cap on (it’s quite colourful FYI) and decided on individual cob loaves in the form of a simple gluten free bread roll. It is the perfect size to share or even just for one and it means that we don’t have to miss out on these delicious dips at a party.

Included in the video is also another two cob dips that are popular. One is a bacon, cheese and corn dip served warm and the other is Camembert, also served warm. Both are super delicious, however, I do apologise in advance for anyone that has a lactose intolerance as these will probably not work for you.

Let’s get into the recipes!
