Mississippi Sin Dip is creamy, cheesy, flavorful and so sinfully good! I understand the “sin” part of the name, but not why Mississippi should get all the glory. But then I am woefully undereducated about Mississippi, My mother taught us to spell it: M I crooked letter crooked letter, I crooked letter crooked letter I poke bonnet poke bonnet I — a rhyme drawn from her incredible store of oral tradition and folk stories. I can tell you that we were hundreds of miles from Mississippi’s location on the Gulf Coast and this still tasted sinfully good.
It’s sinfully easy to make, too. You can bake it in a dish, but the bread bowl makes a special presentation. Use the bread chunks torn from the inside of the loaf for dipping and when the dip is halfway gone — start tearing chunks off the bowl. I prefer to have a cheese spreader handy rather than dipping the bread and usually also serve with an assortment of dipping crackers — whatever works with your crowd. I used ham slices left from holiday dinner, diced small, but you can also use deli ham, diced. I skipped the hot sauce –you know, wimpy me. Use parsley flakes or chopped green onion to garnish the dip. I double wrap the filled bread bowl with aluminum foil and bake it before taking it to a party. It stays warm quite a while — and some people think it is tastier when it at room temperature. So win-win because you don’t have to worry about keeping it warm.
Mississippi is one of the twelve states remaining toward the goal we set on our honeymoon of visiting all fifty states and their capitols. It just moved up a notch 🙂
