Mississippi State Sin Dip: Southern Cooking Part 1

Vika asked for specifically southern foods. Besides grits (which I’ll do at a later time) this is just about the most southern recipe I have. Part of it is that it is named after a college in the South and part of it is that it is meat, cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce baked in a bread bowl. Our friend, Rick, (who incidentally is from Mississippi) loves this so much I often save the bread bowl after the dip is gone just for him because he loves it so much. This is a geek party staple at our house. A friend from church gave me the recipe and I don’t know where it came from before that.

1 loaf round French bread
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped ham
1/3 cup chopped green chilies
Dash Worcestershire sauce

Slice off top of bread and hollow out inside. Mix all other ingredients with a mixer. Pour dip into hollowed bread and put top back on bread. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. (The original recipe calls for the bowl to be wrapped in foil but I can’t ever get it to cook if it is.) Serve as a dip with hollowed out pieces of bread, crackers, and/or chips.
