1 16 ounce loaf french bread
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 3/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup cooked ham
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
paprika to tase

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the top 1/4 from the bread loaf. Scoop out the bread from the bottom portion of the loaf, leaving a 1 inch thick shell. Take the scooped out bread and cut into 1 inch cubes for dipping. Place the bread shell and the bread cubes on a large baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Beat the cream cheese in a bowl. Add the sour cream and beat until creamy. Add the cheese, ham green onions, green pepper and Worcestershire sauce and mix well with a spoon.

Spoon the mixture into the bread shell. Sprinkle with paprika. Wrap the filled shell in heavy duty foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Unwrap the loaf. Place on a large serving platter. Surround the loaf with the toasted bread crumbs and serve immediately.
