How to Make Mississippi Sin Dip

First: Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut a hole in the top of the loaf and reserve the top. Cut or tear out the inside bread, making a hollow bread loaf. Save the bread pieces for serving.

Second: In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mozzarella cheese, and spices. Fold in the chopped ham.

Third: Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out bread loaf. Top with cheddar cheese. Gently wrap loaf in aluminum foil. 

Fourth: Bake on a baking sheet at 350F for 35-45 minutes or until the dip is hot and bubbly and the cheese on top is melted. Remove from foil and place on a serving platter.

Garnish with sliced green onions and serve with bread pieces, chips, crackers, and veggies.

How long does it last?

Leftover Mississippi Sin Dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. I recommend taking any leftover dip out of the bread bowl. Toss the bread and save the dip.

To reheat the dip, you can either place it in a baking dish in the oven or in a slow cooker on low heat until hot and bubbly.

Can you freeze Mississippi Sin dip?

I don’t recommend that you freeze it. The bread will become tough and the dip will get watery.

If you need to make it ahead of time, prepare the cheese mixture in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Then add to the bread bowl and bake when you are ready to serve it.

What should I serve with it?

  • Bread cubes: The pieces from inside the hollowed-out loaf of bread are perfect for dipping. 
  • Chips: I like tortilla chips or potato chips.
  • Veggies: Raw vegetables like carrot sticks, celery, and bell peppers are a great option.
  • Crackers: You favorite buttery crackers are perfect.

Looking to round out your menu? Serve this dip along with these Firecracker meatballs, these fun shishito peppers, a spicy Frito corn salad, and wash it down with a pink squirrel drink!

In the morning, start the day fresh with this fruit filled, mango pineapple smoothie.

Freaky Friday

What is Freaky Friday? It’s a recipe exchange put on by Michaela over at An Affair from the Heart. There are about a dozen people each time that get assigned a fellow foodie website to make a recipe from to share with our readers.

I have a tendency to make recipes that speak to me, like this Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip I made in a previous Freaky Friday.

It’s a win-win because we get to make a delicious recipe from a blogger friend and share it with our readers and you get to hear about another great food website we know you will love!

This time around I drew Tristan from Home Cooked Harvest. A busy mom that grew up eating foods from around the world, she like to make new dishes to try.

Her amazing blog showcases easy to make, healthy, family friendly dishes while packing as many fruits and veggies into them. When she is not cooking, she is napping and dreaming of a large plot of land to call home.

Some of my favorites are her air fryer turkey burgers, honey garlic chicken thighs, dutch pancakes, and these sweet fried pastry strips from Columbia! I can’t stop eating them!!

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  1. Use room temperature cream cheese and sour cream for easier mixing.
  2. To make the bread bowl, use a round loaf of French bread or Italian bread and cut a hole in the center with a serrated knife.
  3. Reserve the removed bread pieces and top for serving later with the dip. There might not be enough bread leftover so add some other items.
  4. Want more onion flavor? Add a dash of onion powder and mix in extra green onions.
  5. Brush the inside of the bread bowl with olive oil before adding the dip to keep it from getting soggy.
  6. For a spicier dip, add more hot sauce, chopped green chiles, or red pepper flakes to taste.
  7. Try to keep the foil from touching the cheese on top of the dip so it doesn’t pull off when you unwrap it.
