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.
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.
