  • 1 loaf Italian bread or any sturdy loaf bread
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 package McCormick® Brown Gravy Mix
  • 1/2 cup milk, I prefer whole milk with this recipe
  • 15 oz jarred processed cheese sauce, such as Cheez Whiz®
  • 1 lb steak bites
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 113g) butter
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried parsly


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place bread on baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Cut an oval or circle out of the top of the bread and remove bread center to make room for the dip.
  • Carefully remove more bread to create a consistent hole in the bread. Chop all bread into bite-size pieces.
  • Set aside for baking.
  • Heat oil in large skillet on medium to medium-high heat. Add vegetables; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender-crisp. Stir Gravy Mix, cheese sauce, milk and 2/3 of steak bites into skillet until well blended.
  • Spoon dip into bread.
  • Bake 15 minutes or until heated through.
  • Melt 1 stick butter. Add garlic powder and dried parsley. Stir until well combined. Coat all bread pieces with butter mixture and then place on a parchment (or foil) lined cookies sheet. Bake for 15 in the oven with the bread bowl. Pieces may need to be turned once half-way through baking.
  • Serve dip with bread pieces and place remaining steak bites on top.
