As an added bonus, this gratifying dip also features dried beef pieces. This addition adds saltiness and texture, along with an unmatched flavor that will have you tearing apart the pumpernickel base that holds this amazing dip within minutes. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 pint (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons dried dillweed
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onions
  • 1 (2.25 ounces) jar sliced dried beef, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 (1 pound each) round pumpernickel breads

Bread Bowl Dip Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix all ingredients together except breads. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  2. Slice top off 1 bread and hollow out bread shell. Pour dip mixture into the hollowed-out shell.
  3. Cut second bread and top of first one into 1-inch chunks and use for dipping.


  • If you want to give your dippers a dark and light look, use 1 pumpernickel and 1 rye bread.
  • You or your friends might know this recipe by another name: rye boat dip! Rye boat dip uses the same dip ingredients that we use here, but the rye bread is usually arranged in more of a "boat" shape. Instead of a round loaf of pumpernickel bread, you'd use an oblong loaf, for example. Or, some recipes place the dip in an oval serving dish and then arrange cubes of rye bread around the dish. No matter what you call this recipe, or how you prefer to serve it, we think it's pretty delicious!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

jinx the recipe you are looking for is on the back of the Knoors vegetable soup mix! The soup mix is used in the recipe.

Thank you! Guess what I'm fixing for the family reunion in August? 2 dips and lots of veggies and bread!

my aunt used to make something like this using frozen chopped spinach, I can't find the recipe, any tips? please help if you can!

I have been making this for many years and it's always a hit. I add chopped lightly blanched or frozen broccoli to make it even better. Just a light rinse of the dried beef then dry it on a paper towel gets rid of excess salt, too.

How could a recipe have almost have 6 cups of ingredients and yield only 3 1/2 cups? Are the measurements correct? Please explain.

Thanks for catching that! We've just fixed the recipe with the right amounts. Let us know how you like this amazing dip!

This dip is really good made with chopped deli corned beef instead of the dried beef.

great recipe now all I need is a recipe to make my own home-made bread bowl

Blanch beef in boiling water for a couple of seconds to remove some salt. Pat dry and proceed with recipe.

oh so this might be what i saw at forest house served on another table and gee it looks fun thought that was bread full of soup thanks...

I just saw this on news and it said to bake in oven??? And I thought it had cheese in it This link will take you to the Cheesy Baked Party Dip

Here's a twist--- Add 1 of each: cup mayo, cup sour cream, a chopped onion, pack of dry 'Knorr' veg soup mix, box of chopped spinach(squeezed dry), and chop a tuna fish size can of water chestnuts or use radishes. Mix together. Sit in fridge for a few hours. It's a big hit at home.

loved it added fresh green onion also...

This is so-o-o- delicious and very easy to put together. I use the round loaves of marble bread, however.

I am going to try this tomorrow and i will let you know if i like it i think i will. Wed. 9th
