The Best Mississippi Sin Dip Recipe
This Mississippi Sin Dip is a creamy, gooey goodness wrapped in layers of savory indulgence. A blend of cream cheese, sour cream, diced ham, and green onions, sitting within a hollowed-out loaf of bread.
Each bite melts in your mouth sending waves of satisfaction through your taste buds. This sinfully delicious dip is baked to a golden perfection; served with crackers, baby carrots, celery, tortilla chips, or bread cubes. This ham dip makes the perfect snack to enjoy while watching your favorite sport.
Now for a list of the key ingredients needed to make this sinful dip. Along with what they do and any substitutions that can be made.
- Sour Cream adds a tangy creaminess to the dip which helps to balance out the richness of the other ingredients. Greek yogurt is a great alternative to the sour cream.
- Cream Cheese adds a smooth and creamy texture that acts as a base for this amazing dip. Mascarpone cheese has a similar creamy texture and mild flavor so that would make for a great substation to the cream cheese.
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese brings a sharp distinct flavor while adding to the gooiness of the dip. Monterey Jack or Gruyére cheese would also work in this recipe.
- Diced Ham brings in that savory and salty element while also adding depth to the flavor and a meaty texture. I used a ham steak that I diced up but you could use leftover ham, deli ham, or bacon crumbles.
- Green Onions adds a mild onion flavor and a pop of color to the crack dip. Shallots, chives, or onion powder would offer a similar oniony flavor.
- Jalapeño brings in a bit of spice enhancing the overall flavor profile. I used a fresh Jalapéno but you could use jarred Jalapénos, poblano peppers, green chilies, red pepper flakes, or a dash of hot sauce.
- Worcestershire sauce adds a savory and slightly tangy flavor that complements the other ingredients. Soy sauce or tamari sauce are similar flavors to Worcestershire sauce.
- Garlic Powder brings a robust garlic flavor without overpowering the dish. Of course, you could use fresh minced garlic or leave it out completely.
- French Bread Loaf serves as the vessel for the dip but you can make this dip in a baking dish or slow cooker. For a richer-tasting bread try using an Italian bread loaf.
How To Make Mississippi Sin Dip
Create your new favorite dip with simple ingredients and a dash of creativity by whipping up a batch of Mississippi sin dip.
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Place 2 pieces of aluminum foil on a baking sheet leaving enough to wrap the bread bowl with. If you are using a baking dish spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Take the large bread bowl and cut the top off, hollow out the inside, and reserve those chunks for later.
In a large mixing bowl mix together the sour cream and cream cheese until smooth with a hand mixer. I always make sure my cream cheese is at room temperature so it will be easier to combine. Using a rubber spatula stir in the cheddar cheese, chopped ham, green onions, jalapéno, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder until well combined.
Spoon the dip mixture into the prepared loaf of French bread or baking dish. If using a bread loaf then wrap the loaf tightly with the sheets of foil. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the dip is hot and bubbly. The bake time will depend on the size of the vessel you use. If using a smaller bread bowl you will have extra of the creamy dip mixture, bake the remaining in a baking dish.
Remove the foil from the top of the bread and place it back into the oven. And allow to bake for 2-3 minutes or until the top is golden brown. I like to place mine under the broiler that has been set to HI for 2-3 minutes to give it a crispiness to the top.
