Has anyone here made this appetizer? Thinking it would be good for game day. 

Mississippi Sin Dip

Mississippi sin dip, you may ask, what is this? Well, it is French bread stuffed with a ham and cheese mixture that’s perfectly seasoned with green chilies and green onions.

 

This easy-to-make party dip combines the saltiness of ham and cheddar cheese, the mild heat from green chilies, and the freshness of green onions with the tang of cream cheese and sour cream.

 

Serve this Mississippi Sin Dip recipe with chips and toast points at your next get-together or as individual hors d’oeuvres at a casual dinner. It’s also great to make for game day or a potluck.

 

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 4 ounces green chilies
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 loaf French bread

To serve, you’ll need:

  • Crackers
  • Toasted bread cubes

Ingredient Notes

This recipe calls for deli ham but you can substitute it with thick-sliced country-style ham.

 

You can use chives instead of green onions if you prefer.

Use a good quality loaf of crusty French bread. Cut off the top and hollow it out. Save the bread interior of the bread. Cut the bread into cubes and toast them with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper in a skillet over medium heat.

 

How To Make This Hot Ham and Cheese Dip 

To prepare this Mississippi Sin Dip recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut the ham into medium dice.
  3. Drain the green chiles.
  4. Slice the green onions thinly.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dip ingredients. Stir well to incorporate everything fully.
  6. Hollow out the loaf of bread
  7. Fill the hollowed-out bread with the cheese mixture.
  8.  Wrap the bread bowl loosely in aluminum foil and place it on a baking tray.
  9.  Bake for an hour.
  10.  Unwrap and serve while still warm. 

 

Recipe Variations

There are countless ways to change this dip to suit your taste. Here are a few to whet your appetite and creativity:

  • Swap the ingredients. Use cooked bacon bits or sausage instead of ham. Substitute the green chiles for pickled jalapenos, or change the cheese to Gruyere or Smoked Gouda for a robust, smoky flavor. 
  • Spice things up. Sprinkle in a teaspoon garlic powder, a dash of smoked paprika, or a little white pepper. Add a teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and your favorite hot sauce.
  • Use different bread. This dip is also great in sourdough or Italian bread.
  • Forget the bread bowl. Use a casserole baking dish to heat and serve the dip. Or you keep it warm in a Crockpot slow cooker on low.
 

How To Serve Mississippi Sin Dip 

The traditional way to serve this dip is inside a bread bowl with crackers, tortilla chips, chips, or toasted bread croutons. But you have lots of other options:

  • Turn this dip into a sandwich spread and serve it between two buttered slices of toasted or grilled sourdough bread.
  • Use it as a hearty filling for a baked potato.
  • Hollow out and toast dinner rolls to make an individual serving.
  • Eat on a bagel or hot biscuit for breakfast.
  • Stuff inside an omelet. 
 

How To Store Mississippi Ham Sin Dip Leftovers 

If you served the dip, be safe and throw away any leftovers. However, if you made extra dip and didn’t put it out, you can refrigerate it for up to three days in an airtight container.

 

How to Reheat 

Reheat the dip in the oven at 350°F for about an hour. Heat the dip in a covered casserole dish or an aluminum-wrapped bread bowl.

@Chi-town girl   I’ve made this in a crock pot, but substituted bacon for the ham, and added a little hot sauce.  Served with toasted French bread slices and crackers.  It was a big hit.  I’m going to make it again soon.  It was so good.  Thanks for the reminder!

@Chi-town girl   it’s perfect for a football crowd.  Because I dried the French bread slices, everything went, no soggy partial bread bowl leftover.  Next time I may try the pita chips.  Crunchy and already baked.  There wasn’t a drop left when I made it.

Thank you @lynnie61 - I was wondering about the bread loaf 'boat' assuming it's intended to be a vessel not necessarily for consumption. I like the presentation and the dip looks very versatile
