Happy Saturday! It is a pretty gross day here in Georgia, so I am trying to use the day to catch up on the blog. I made this dip for a baby shower and it was pretty much demolished by the end of the party. Here is how I made it…
1 pound mild Italian sausage (hotter if you like spicy or add red chili flakes/hot sauce)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 container pimento cheese (you could make your own, but I used one that had bacon mixed in- Palmetto Cheese Brand
1/3 cup cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheese
In a large bowl, I mixed the sausage, egg, and breadcrumbs together with my hands. Then I browned the sausage mixture until browned. Once cooled, I added the room temperature cream cheese and pimento cheese and combined well. I placed it in a small baking/casserole dish and topped with the shredded cheese. This can all be done in advance. I baked it in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or crudites.
