Hot Ham & cheese dip

1 Hawaiian Bread (not buns or rolls)
1 cup diced ham
5 scallions dices, including some of the green
1 cup each shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheeses
1 tbs garlic powder
1 cup sour cream
2 8 oz packages cream cheese

Let cream cheese soften before mixing (with electric mixer). Add sour cream once cream cheese is well blended. Add garlic powder and cheeses. Add onion and ham, but hand mix.

Cut a small portion, a cap, of the top of the bread off with a straight cut. Gently pull out the bread from the bottom section of the bread to form a bowl. Fill "bowl" with cheese mixture. Place small "cap" of bread on top again. Place on baking sheet and cover with foil tent. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour. Remove from oven when heated thoroughly.

We prefer Fritos for dipping, but tortilla chips work as well. The removed bread from the "bowl" is great for snacking while it bakes. The bottom of the bowl with the cheese mixture is great to eat once the dip all gone.
