Mississippi Sin - delicious dip baked in a bread bowl - SINFUL! There is never any left when I take this to a party! Everyone asks for the recipe. Ham, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and green onions baked in french bread. Can make in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake. Great for parties and watching football!
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, the bottom of the loaf, 1/2 inch from the edge, to cut out the center of the bread. Lift out the center of the loaf. Fill hollowed bread loaf with the dip. Wrap loaf with foil.
Place the loaf on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour. Serve with reserved bread cubes, crackers, or potato chips.
Can use any meat you like - ham, sausage, or bacon work great.I feel like the bread bowl is totally 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. You can assembly the dip ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.You can heat this up in the slow cooker if you prefer. I would cook it on LOW in the crockpot for a few hours before serving.Feel free to add green chiles, jalapenos, or even a can of Rotel to the dip mixture.I used french bread for the bread bowl. Feel free to use any bread you prefer. This would be delicious with a round Hawaiian bread loaf or sourdough bread.
