Sausage Dip

Categories: Cooking, recipes


I love fall.

I love the weather, the football and everything that goes with it. But, you know what else I love about fall? It heralds the beginning of “appetizer season”.

I consider appetizer season to begin on Halloween and end on Super Bowl Sunday. During this time, it’s acceptable to count things on toothpicks as dinner, and dip is a food group.

Sausage dip is a great hearty appetizer, and it couldn’t be easier to make with only 3 ingredients. You can keep the ingredients on hand for a reasonable amount of time in case you need a last-minute something to take to a party.

Sausage Dip:

1 lb. pork sausage
2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese (I actually use 1 1/2 packages)
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes

Brown sausage and drain. Add cream cheese:

Now, add the Rotel:

Serve with your favorite chips, but I think Fritos Scoops are the best:

Serve hot, or keep warm in a crockpot. Granted, it’s not much to look at and it will never be mistaken for health food or haute cuisine, but you won’t be sorry if you give it a try!

Warning: it’s very filling. Trust me. I may or may not have had it for dinner tonight.

  • Mmmmmm. Anything with Rotel is a hit with me. I’ve done this one with regular ground beef and velveeta. Still good, still looks like barf.

  • I just learned that recipe this summer and it’s quickly become one of my favorites! Better than Velveeta, I think. (Although I still appreciate the classic!)
