    Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Slice top off bread loaf and pull out chunks from inside to create a shell. Place bread shell, top and chunks on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes, until light golden, crisp and warm.

    Meanwhile, place cream cheese in a bowl and microwave on high 1 minute, until soft enough to mix. Heat a small frying pan on medium. Cook bacon for 2 minutes, stirring, until browned. Drain on paper towel. Add to cream cheese with tomato, onion, mayonnaise and half chives.

    Spoon dip into bread shell and top with remaining chives. Serve on a platter with bread chunks for dipping.


Once the top of the loaf and bread chunks have been eaten, start breaking up the shell with the dip still clinging to it. You may also like to have a knife on hand for spreading.
