Mississippi sin dip gets its name because it’s sinfully delicious and absolutely irresistible! It’s creamy but packed full of delicious flavors and spices, making it decadently addictive.

A Creamy Cheesy Dip

  • Easy-to-find ingredients and 4 steps make this dip a favorite.
  • It’s easy to kick up the heat to your liking (or make it mild if you’d prefer).
  • Similar to crack dip but taken a step further and baked in an edible bread bowl.
  • For individual servings, hollow out slider rolls, fill with dip, and bake (we do this with spinach dip too).

Ingredients for Mississippi Sin Dip

Sin Dip Ingredients

BASE: Cream cheese gives a rich, creamy texture to dips and spreads and sour cream adds tang and makes it smoother and easier to dip.

CHEESE: In addition to cream cheese, cheddar adds lots of flavor.  Coupled with cheddar cheese and sour cream, the base for this dip is perfect.

ADD-INS: Bacon, a dash of hot sauce, a handful of savory seasonings, and the dip is done! But this recipe is great for hearty extras like cooked sausage crumbles, diced tomatoes, chopped ham, diced black olives, and even chili beans or shredded chicken.

BREAD: A large bread bowl is used for this recipe, but long baguettes or dinner rolls can be hollowed out for individual Mississippi Sin Dip appetizers.

PRO TIP: Keep Mississippi Sin Dip in a Crockpot instead of a bread bowl to keep warm and serve with toasted crostini or tortilla chips!

How to Make Sin Dip

It’s simple to make this dip, and the ingredients are easy to find, too. Chances are good that most pantries already have what’s needed on hand!

  1. Mix all ingredients (per the recipe below) until fully combined.
  2. Create a space in the bread bowl that allows for dip to be scooped in (without leaking out).
  3. Bake the bread bowl until the filling is hot & bubbly.
  4. Remove from oven & garnish with sliced green chives or scallions. Feel free to garnish with an extra sprinkle of bacon bits, as well.

PRO TIP: Build the Mississippi Sin Dip bowl in advance and keep it covered in the refrigerator until it’s ready to heat.

Kitchen Tips

  • Mix the cream cheese with a hand mixer. This adds more air to the dip making it more “scoopable”.
  • Pre-shredded cheese works well in this recipe (and saves time).
  • Swap out bacon for bacon bits or sausage crumbles. Easy peasy!

Best Dippers to Try

  • The leftover bread itself is a great dipper. Scooped out bread can be tossed in olive oil and Italian Seasoning and baked into homemade croutons for dipping. Yum!
  • Try breadsticks, tortilla chips, or Easy Crostini. Or go for Oven Baked Soft Pretzels for a truly decadent dipper.
  • And for a low-carb option, try simple celery sticks along with slices of cucumber (skip the bread bowl of course!).

How to Store

If not using leftover bread pieces as dippers, try drying them out in the oven and making them into seasoned breadcrumbs for adding to meatloaf, meatballs, or as a savory coating for meats or fish. They can be stored in a zipped bag until ready to crush and use. Keep Mississippi Sin Dip inside the bread bowl and wrap it in plastic and store it in the refrigerator. Don’t leave it too long, though, so that the bread will stay fresh. It’s just as good served cold as warmed!

  1. Holly, I’m using tiny rolls to make individual “bread bowls” so that no one has to touch/dip where other hands have touched. Do I place the top on the hollowed out roll or can I use the top and the bottom separately to make two servings out of one roll???

    Sounds delicious for a cocktail party we are hosting.

    Thanks!4 stars

    1. Hi Carolyn, we use the top and the insides to dipping but you could definitely use the top separately to get two bread bowls out of one! That’s a great idea.
