Mississippi Sin - Football Friday


It's Football Friday! The college football regular season is winding down; only one more week to go.  We move on to Championship Week and bowl games. I am looking forward to both!

We had this dip at our tailgate last weekend.  I have no idea why this is called Mississippi Sin (there are so many jokes that could be inserted here), but we'll just go with it.  Mama Hen got the recipe from one of he co-workers.  The recipe is very similar to one of my favorite dips, "crack".  (We call it crack b/c you can't stop eating it)

This is a great tailgate dip because it is great hot and still really good cold (after the game).  I ate way too much of this.  I feel like the bread bowl is optional.  It looks good, but it isn't necessary to the success of the dip.  I think this would be just as good baked in a baking dish. 

This is a keeper.  I might even like it better than my beloved "crack dip".  I think I'll refer to this as "new crack" from now on.




Mississippi Sin

  • 16oz sour cream
  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped ham
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 16 oz French bread loaf


In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, except French bread; stirring until well blended.

Cut a thin slice from top of bread loaf; set slice aside. Using a gentle sawing motion, cut vertically to, but not through, bottom of the loaf, 1/2 inch from the edge, to cut out center of bread. Lift out center of loaf. Fill hollowed bread loaf with the dip. Wrap loaf with foil.

Bake dip at 350° degrees for 1 hour. Serve with reserved bread cubes, crackers, or potato chips.

  1. With sour cream and two cheeses, ham and onion - how could it not be delicious. Although I may substitute some of the new Jimmy Dean pre-cooked sausage crumbles for the ham.

  2. It does sound like a winner.

    I'll have to try it on hubby and see if he likes it.

  4. I've been looking for something new to serve at our Christmas get together and I think I have found it. Sounds wonderful and looks so good. Can't wait to try it. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Being from Mississippi I think the name of the recipe is right on ;)! Anyway, We make this all the time and most of the time we make it in a baking dish and serve it with Hawaiian bread. So delicious!

  6. Hi! My friends and I are discussing this and we have some ideas for a little variation (Not that the original sin dip doesn't look... well.. Sinful.)
    We were thinking, sourdough on the bread. Add bacon bits. and top with cold chopped tomato and green onion once out of the oven.
    Gonna try to make it next week! We are so excited!!

  10. We usually make this recipe with sausage crumbles and a small can of green chiles. So yummy on Fritos!

  11. Thanks so much for this recipe! I actually saw it on Pinterest and followed the link to your blog. :> I'm making it today for the first time and added a few things: more worcestershire, more Tabasco, chopped pickled jalapeƱos, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, and celery salt. I'm predicting that this will be a hit at our cookout! :>

  12. i just made this tonight and it is DELICIOUS!! thanks for sharing, this is definitely my new favorite dip :)

  13. I think I will try it using Armour Dried Beef. I use dried beef in a cheese ball that I make and it is always a big hit.

  14. This is AMAZING! I made it today and I'm afraid that it's going to be all gone before my husband gets home :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. We make something very similar to this and call it "Fat Dip"! It is always the first thing gone!

  16. I am brain dead from Christmas, ;} can you be more specific on the chopped ham part? Is it just regular sandwich ham or.....?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Laura - it can be sandwich meat ham or any other ham you have. I've done it with diced honey baked ham and sandwich meat ham.

    ReplyDelete
  18. We have a similar type of dip, but it's only 3 ingredients. 1 block of cream cheese, 1, 8 oz package of cooked ham - chopped up, and 8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese. Soften the cream cheese a bit, mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. It's a HUGE hit at all our family gatherings.

  19. Sounds really good Rebecca - I love simple appetizers!

  20. I have taken this to two different Christmas parties and everyone LOVED it. I had two people (one from each party) sit in front of it and actually chow down. I made a blog shout out to your page and this amazing appetizer. THANK YOU FOR POSTING AND SHARING.

  22. I've been making this since the mid 90's but have always used browned sausage and added green chilies. Its always been a winner at every event I take it too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. If you're not baking it in the bread loaf, do you still bake it for an hour? I did and it just didn't look like the picture. It was pretty dried out...

  24. MISSISSIPPI SIN!!! My 1st cousin is engaged to a fella that brought this recipe to one of our family dinners a couple years back and has only visited once again since (they live in VA and I in GA) and I INSISTED on them bringing this dish AGAIN. Her mother got the recipe from them but I haven't seen it yet - SO looking forward to making this!

  25. I'm going to make this tomorrow to bring to a class reunion meeting. What is the best dipping tool? bread, fritos, crackers. I only want to buy one dipper. Thanks

  27. I'm gonna try this with some Tasso ham!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds delish, but why must everyone always use Worchestershire sauce... especially in cheese dips? When I make this, I'll leave that part out. My body simply doesn't digest fish products well at all, and others are downright allergic. But, thanks for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I used canned ham, chopped and skipped the salt since the ham was quite salty - also, I added more green onions and sriracha sauce for heat instead of hot sauce (this is partially because I don't prefer the taste of most hot sauces in dips - fritos scoops are excellent with this dip! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh that sounds great! The picture has me drooling! Love the name too funny :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. This can't be good for you, I like it already! Only I'd have to nix the ham (It's an Islamic thing). ^^

  32. We have been making this recipie for years with all kinds of variations. Bacon or ham, finely diced sauted peppers or green onions and I like sourdough bread best. My shameful secret is that after almost all of the dip has been consumed, I wrap the bread shell tightly in foil and put it in the back of the freezer under a bag of Okra. Days later when the craving hits and I am all alone, I reheat it in the oven for 15 minutes and hit it with the broiler until crispy & bubley(?). I then proceed to pull the crack bread apart until all is consumed. The crumpled foil is the only evidence and is easily hidden in the trash. Why share? Everyone else assumed the bread bowl was just for holding the dip & gets thrown away - what fools! The dippy bread is the best part. I think I need professional help.

  33. My friend gave me a similar recipe...8oz cream cheese, 8oz cheddar cheese, 16oz cottage cheese and a packet of taco seasoning. Mix well and there ya go!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This will be my second time making this and I know it's going to be a hit. I used the crumbled sausage and will be adding real Bacon bits this time. I absolutely loooooooovvvvvvveeeeee this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

  35. How many servings would you say this is?

    ReplyDelete
  36. MothyrGrimm - I really have no idea. It is a lot of dip. It would easily serve a crowd of 15-20 with other foods.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's called Mississippi Sin because it was created In Mississippi. It also was originally called Mississippi Dip and was used at a tailgate food at Ole Miss and MSU games. The origin is still being fought over as to where it began...either in Oxford or Starkville. Since we have such a deep rivalry, Ole Miss people started adding tabasco & worcestershire and then calling it Mississippi Sin...and since then it has stuck....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks for sharing Chris - I have always wondered where the name of the dip came from. Now I know!

    ReplyDelete
  39. If you don't use the bread and you put it in a serving dish, do you still bake it a full hour and should it be covered or uncovered? Can't wait to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Janet - I would cook it uncovered until it is bubbly - probably about 30 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Does the bread bowl burn or get ruined in the oven when baking the dip
    ?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kimberly - mine hasn't - it is baked in aluminum foil, so it shouldn't brown or burn.

  43. Someone is auctioning off your recipe and using your picture on Listia. I thought you might want to know! http://www.listia.com/auction/8101877-mississippi-sin-dip

  45. Stephanie, your blog is that spark that started me on the path of online recipes!! ESPECIALLY this recipe. Everyone in my family hounds me to make this for every event we have, and it goes quick!! The only variation I make is to add chopped green chiles, bacon instead of ham and green Tabasco. Ah-may-zing!! Wrapping the leftovers (if there are any) in foil and re-heating it in the oven is great too!! I'm just starting out in the blogosphere, but if you had time to stop by and check me out, I'd love it!!

  46. Sorry if this sounds stupid but has the dip have a real spicy hit taste? I know it calls for hot sauce but if ppl like it kind of milder any suggestions ? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  47. Cindy - there is no heat in this dip. It only has 1/4 teaspoon of hot sauce - you can leave it out if you are worried. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm not sure I will be allowed back to our tailgate without this now! I made this for the Auburn-Ms State game yesterday and it was quite a hit. I doubled the recipe and put in a baking dish instead of the bread bowl. It was wiped out before the game with none left for the victory celebration. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Teresa - I think the dip was the good luck charm! War Eagle!

    1. I buy some diced ham at the grocery store, but chopped deli ham would work too.

      Delete
    2. thank you! i bought some some pieces of ham (steaks) kinda i would say...:) thank u!

      Delete
  52. Mississippi Sin.....because it will certainly turn you into a glutton! I bet crumbled bacon in place of the ham chunks would be good too. There's no way I could make this.....I would eat it all, literally (I have a hard-to-manage cheese addiction!). :-)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yum!! I made this today for the first time (in a casserole dish) and, wowza, it is super tasty! My hubby and I inhaled it. Seriously. Thank goodness I only made half a batch. I do have a question though. The consistency of ours wasn't as "pretty" as it should be (i.e. it didn't look like your pictures). It almost looked curdled a tad (for lack of a better word). The dip was still "sinful" and we can't wait to make it again, but I thought I'd check in and see if you have any thoughts on why this might have happened. Happy New Year! :)

  54. This looks absolutely amazing! Pinning for the Superbowl!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Could you make this in the crockpot? If so, any guesses on the length of time? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. my husband doesn't eat pork do you think chicken or turkey would work just as well

  57. Being from Mississippi, I would like to say that this is a great tailgate dip because it is great hot and still really good cold (after the game). I ate way too much of this.
