Cheesy Pulled Pork BBQ Bread Dip is just the extreme tailgating fix you and your crew need for any game you are watching this season!

Featuring Stubb’s famous Original Sauce with all of its incredible flavor, this meaty BBQ dip is the real deal. Made to look like a football, it’s impossible not to get in the tailgating mood!

You all know that I love any excuse to tailgate. Whether my favorite team is playing (despite their terrible losing streak right now) or I’m rooting for the Man’s favorite team, tailgating is in my blood.

It’s probably because any food associated with tailgating is the bomb dot COM.

We usually see all of our tailgating favs pop up in September and October, but how can the fun stop there when there’s still weeks of football before that final big game?!

I’m here to help you stuff your guts during the holiday season with yet another excuse to eat more – extreme tailgating!

When Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q asked me to create a recipe for extreme tailgating, I was alllllll about it.

I mean, with all of their sauces, rubs and marinades that feature bold flavors you can’t get anywhere else, how could you possibly resist?

The main star of this cheesy, meaty, and ridiculously flavorful bread dip is Stubb’s Original Sauce.

Let me just start by telling you this sauce is the REAL DEAL.

This is actually the original sauce that started it all for C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield! Just like when he first starting churning out his homemade sauce in whiskey bottles stopped with serrano peppers (this guy is basically my hero – whiskey bottles stopped with peppers?! Stop. It.),

Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q is keeping the magic alive with all of their flavorful sauces, rubs and marinades.

With ingredients like tomatoes, peppers, spices and molasses that never include high fructose corn syrup and are gluten free, you are guaranteed to enjoy any food that you add their products to.

A dip like this is SO ridiculously easy and takes little to no effort to pull together. Yes, even the cute little laces on top are easy to make and make the whole dip super festive for every Sunday game.

The BBQ sauce brings the cheese and meat together in a sultry, savory dip that is impossible not to devour. It’s tangy and rich with just the tiniest bit of sweetness to balance out the bold flavors.

When you serve it up with toasted bread cubes and chips, you’ve hit the jackpot of tailgating dips.

Cheesy Pulled Pork BBQ Bread Dip Recipe

    30 Servings


  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cup Stubb's Original Bar-B-Q Sauce
  • 1 cup Pulled Pork, (see notes for recipe link)
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
  • 1 loaf French Bread, (large)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, salt, and 1 cup cheddar cheese. Use an electric mixer or wooden spoon to mix together the ingredients.
  3. Stir in pulled pork and Stubb's Original Bar-B-Q Sauce. Set aside.
  4. Hollow out a large French baguette to form a bread bowl, keeping the bread you pull out in tact. Slice 4 to 5 long thin strips out of the bread you pulled out. Set aside.
  5. Chop the rest of the bread into 1-inch chunks. Set aside.
  6. Add the pulled pork mixture to the bread bowl you created. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  7. Place the loaf on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  8. While the loaf is toasting, place bread strips and cubes on a separate baking sheet. Place in the oven to lightly toast the bread, approximately 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  9. When the bread dip is done remove from oven and transfer to serving platter. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
  10. Cut all but one of the thin toasted strips of bread in half. Place the long, uncut piece in the center of the dip. Place the halves on either side of the long stripe to form the laces as shown in the pictures.
  11. Serve immediately with toasted bread cubes and chips.
