It’s time to give the old lamb roast the flick because the days of backyard banter over meat and three veg have been and gone and the time for cheese and bacon-filled bread loafs is RIGHT EFFING NOW. You can start sending your letters of appreciation to The Urban List head office because we’ve officially put pen to paper to publish what can only be described as an insane addition to any social gathering, food-related or otherwise.

Here’s how to make a kickass cob loaf at home.


  • 1 cob loaf
  • 250g tub of Philadelphia
  • 300mL of sour cream
  • 250g of tasty cheese
  • 210g of creamed corn
  • 4 rashers of bacon, diced
  • 6 spring onions, sliced and diced


  1. Grab your Woolies tote bags and hit the supermarket. You can get a mean round cob from almost any bakery, as well as any major supermarket. The same goes for cheese and bacon buns, they have nothing to do with this recipe, but leaving a bakery without them is a sin.
  2. Head home and preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius, then use a serrated bread knife to slice the top off the cob and tear out the inside of the loaf in pieces. Pop those juicy bread bits in a container and set aside for the mo. Try not to eat them all.
  3. Line an oven tray with baking paper, pop the cob loaf skeleton on there and then fry the bacon in a pan to the desired level of ~sizzle~.
  4. Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a bowl (bacon included) and pour the mixture into the cob loaf husk and pop it in the oven.
  5. Bake that bad boy for ninety minutes, and then remove it from the oven, add the torn away bread to the tray and bake for a further ten minutes.
  6. Pull that delicious b*stard from the oven, grab a piece of bread, dive into that cheesy cob and Instagram a pic of carby cob loaf with the hashtag #cobloafoftheday.
