Rye bread dip is a popular party appetizer that loads a creamy chipped beef and dill dip into an edible rye bread bowl.
This easy dip can be prepared in advance and quickly added to your bread bowl right before the party, or you can simply set it out in a serving bowl with toasted rye bread slices instead. Best of all, this rye bread bowl dip recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare!
Ingredients & Substitutions
- Sour cream
- Dried chipped beef - Buddig beef packets are perfect.
- Fresh parsley
- Fresh dill
- Onion flakes - You can substitute minced onion.
- Garlic powder
- Table salt
- Loaf of rye bread - The bread loaf needs to be unsliced. However, if your grocery store only sells it sliced, you can serve the dip in a medium bowl with toasted slices of bread for dipping.
How to make it
To make this rye bread dip recipe, first combine the sour cream and mayo in a large mixing bowl. Then add the chipped beef, chopped parsley, dill, onion flakes, garlic powder, and salt. Stir everything until well combined.
Cut the center out of the top of the bread loaf with a serrated knife and remove the interior to form a bowl. Place the creamy dip in the bread bowl.
Cut the remaining bread into slices or bread cubes. Then toast in the oven, under the broiler, or in a toaster.
Place the rye boat dip on a serving platter with toasted bread for dipping and serve.
This is a great dip to make in advance because it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, and the flavor will improve as it melds together.
The dip should be removed from the loaves of rye bread for storage. The bread will get soggy during storage otherwise, so fresh bread or rye crackers should be used with any leftovers.
