Everyone has their favorite tailgating recipes for different types of game day experiences, whether it is a morning game and you are cooking up some breakfast or it is the end of November and you are serving up turkey and dressing.
Since the game this weekend is on the road, we are watching the game here at home in Birmingham. Whenever we watch a game on TV, we have a tradition of our own when it comes to food. We usually make a batch of Mississippi Sin Bread along with some other snacks and cheer on our Bulldogs.
Never had Mississippi Sin? If you have a Bully's Best cookbook, you can find it in there. You can also search google and find plenty of articles and videos on how to make it. But for the sake of this article, I am going to go ahead and repeat it here.
So, here is what you are going to need:
- 1 loaf of French bread
- 1.5 cups of sour cream
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 package of cream cheese (8 oz.)
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup chopped ham
- 1/3 cup chopped green chilies
- a dash of Worcestershire sauce
I have seen all different types of bread used. The bottom line is you want a nice, firm bread that can stand up to the dip you are going to put into it. For instance, Hawaiian bread doesn't work well.
Take the bread and cut the top off, then hollow out the bread to make a bowl. Save the top and the bread you pulled out of the inside.
Next, combine the sour cream, cheese, cream cheese, green onions, ham, chilies and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and mix it until well blended.
Put the mixture into the bread bowl and place the top that you cut off back on top, covering the dip. Wrap the bread in tin foil and bake it in a 350 degree oven for about an hour.
Serve the dip with the bread you removed when you hollowed it out. It also goes great with Fritos, tortilla chips or crackers.
So that is pretty much it. I sometimes like to double the chilies or add some jalapeños to kick it up a notch or two.
