Best Tailgate Sausage Dip
Fall in the South means one thing, FOOTBALL!!! There is nothing better than cheering on your favorite team to victory. And in the great state of Alabama, you do NOT ride the fence. You must declare an allegiance to The University of Alabama or Auburn University, preferably by the time you are 8 years old. But I digress, as usual, Squirrel!
Tailgating is as big of a deal as the actual game in most instances and that is true in any state, not just Alabama the Beautiful. As we embark on the Fall season, we will feature some of our most favorite game day, tailgate goodies. Today, we feature the Best Tailgate Sausage Dip. Dips are a very popular item at tailgates. They are a hearty finger food that can be eaten on bread slices or your favorite cracker or chip. So on we go!
1 pound Italian sausage, browned
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp chopped chives
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 tsp sage
salt and pepper to taste
Dips are great because you can really just dump the ingredients, mix and bake. Easy and no fuss. this one is no exception. Cook and drain the sausage and set aside. Mix in a large bowl, the cream cheese, sour cream paprika, onions, sage, salt and pepper. Mix well. add in about a half a cup of each cheese(more if you like!) and then the sausage. Mix well and pour into a 9 X 9 greased casserole dish or a 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes until top is bubbly and golden brown. Top with chopped chives. Serve warm or room temp.
Have Dip, Will Travel.
Whether you are tailgating on site, at a friends house or right in the comfort of your own home, this dip will bring home the Dub! It is fabulous warm right out of the oven but is also good at room temperature too. So no worries if you are tailgating on the road with no way to reheat.
