How to make the Spinach Dip
Drain spinach. Remove from the outer wrapper of the spinach and keep it in the paper box. Squeeze the box tightly between the palms of your hands over the sink to remove as much water as you can.
Take the spinach from the box and place into a mixing bowl. Add dry soup mix, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Stir well to combine. Refrigerate covered for 4 hours or overnight.
How to make a Football Bread Bowl
To make the bread bowl, you can freehand cut a football shape onto the bread, or create a small paper template as shown and cut around it.
Remove the bread in the center by cutting vertical slices then remove chunks of bread one at the time. Set the pieces of bread aside.
Spoon prepared spinach dip into the bread bowl. Top with one large sliced red pepper, and smaller pepper pieces to resemble football stitching.
Cut the reserved bread pieces with a bread knife, into 1″ dipping cubes. Cut the other loaf of bread into 1″ cubes for dipping. Serve immediately.
