How To Make Mississippi Sin Dip
We like to keep our lists of ingredients pretty small on this site. And this list is a little longer than many of our recipes. But all the ingredients are super simple and you probably already have them in your kitchen. For step-by-step instructions, check out the printable recipe card below. But here is what you’ll need to get started:
Mississippi Sin Dip Ingredients:
- ITALIAN BREAD – Just make sure your bread loaf is large to fit all of the dip inside it.
- CREAM CHEESE – You can substitute for low fat cream cheese to lighten this dish up. Or, there are flavored cream cheeses you could try as well: Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese, Chive and Onion, Jalapeno, etc… They have a ton of flavors!
- SOUR CREAM – You can also substitute for light sour cream here too.
- MAYONNAISE – Use real Mayo.
- SHREDDED CHEESE – We used Cheddar Cheese. But you can use whatever you’d like. Pepper Jack for some heat. Colby Jack, etc…
- DICED HAM – This is a great use for leftover ham. Or you can buy some thick cut ham from your deli or even the pre-cubed packages of ham.
- GARLIC – Minced.
- SALT AND PEPPER – To taste.
- WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE – This gives the dip an extra depth of flavor.
- HOT SAUCE – We used about 10 dashes. You can use however much to achieve the heat you want. And use whatever kind of hot sauce you prefer. We used Franks Red Hot.
- GREEN ONIONS – For a garnish.
Can You Make This Dip Ahead Of Time?
Yep! You can mix all the ingredients together and keep in an airtight container in the fridge until your ready to put it in the bread and bake it. I wouldn’t introduce the dip mixture to the bread until your ready to bake, or the bread may get soggy.
This recipe does have perishable ingredients, so keep an eye on the time after you serve it. I wouldn’t leave it out in room temperature for more than 3 hours.
Can You Use A Slow Cooker?
This recipe would be awesome for a slow cooker! Just dump all your ingredients in and cook on low for about 2 hours. Then carve out your bread and serve it!
What To Dip In Mississippi Corn Dip?
You can dip just about anything you’d like into this dip. Some ideas are:
- Tortilla Chips
- Pita Chips
- Ritz Crackers
- Saltine Crackers
Leftovers, Storage and Freezing
Store leftovers in an airtight container. Or, if you want to keep it in the bread bowl, wrap loaf in aluminum foil or Saran Wrap (plastic wrap). It will need to be in the refrigerator. It should stay good for up to 4 days but the bread bowl may start to get soggy sooner than that.
I would not freeze this dip. It wouldn’t thaw very well.
Notes, Tips and FAQs
- USE A SERRATED KNIFE TO CUT THE BREAD BOWL – Use a bread knife or a serrated knife when you slice into your bread to keep your cuts clean and keep the bread intact.
- DO I HAVE HAVE TO USE ITALIAN BREAD? – No, really any kind of bread loaf could work for this: french bread, sourdough bread, etc…. And really any shape as long as you can make it into a bowl. I’ve heard of people using Hawaiian Bread too!
- WHAT OTHER MEAT CAN YOU PUT IN MISSISSIPPI DIP? – You could cook and dice up some bacon. Or cook (and drain the grease) some breakfast sausage. Shredded chicken could also work!
- DO YOU HAVE TO USE A BREAD BOWL – Nope! You could serve this in an 8X8 baking dish and that would work just fine.
- BREAD CUBES – Keep the bread you slice out of the loaf to make the bowl. You can make bread cubes out of them to dip into the dip.
