Stephanie's Hot Broccoli Dip
1 round bread, unsliced (sold in bakery dept.)*
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tbls. butter*
1 pound Velveeta cheese
1- 10 ounce pkg. frozen broccoli, thawed and drained
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced, (optional)*
Cut and slice from top of bread. Remove center leaving 1" shell. Tear removed bread into bite-sized pieces. Saute' celery and onions in butter until tender. Add cheese, stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Stir in remaining ingredients (not bread!); heat thoroughly, stirring constantly. Spoon into bread 'bowl'. Serve with vegetables and torn bread pieces.
*You can make your own bread, if you like, as a sourdough would go well with this.
*Original recipe called for margarine, but to make more healthy I subbed butter.
*I added the pepper for color.
