Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip Aka "brads Dip"

"Yummmy Sausage Cream Cheese Tex Mix kind of dip. Goes great with Tostito's Scoops. I call this "Brad's Dip" because I got the recipe from a guy at work. He always brought this to our Pot-Luck lunches, and it was always one of the first things to go."

    Seems like a somewhat gross combination, but this really is a good dip. It always goes well at parties, even after people give you a weird look while listing the ingredients :) I always make this with Morningstar Farms Breakfast Patties (microwaved until soft and then chopped). Vegetarians and meat-eaters both love it.

    I made this for a potluck at work yesterday. I made it as written. I used Bob Evans regular sausage. This fit exactly in my 1 quart crock pot. I browned everything on the stove and then transfered it to my crock pot to keep warm. I did not drain my tomatoes, so at first it looked a little runny. But after a while it thickened. Thank you for posting your recipe. It was a big hit.

    Love this stuff. I brown the sausage (Jimmy Dean Hot), throw everything in the crockpot on low and give it a stir every now and then.

    We loved this dip! I had 1/2 of a pound of cooked sausage to use so I cut the recipe in half. Mine didn't turn pink because I drained the tomato juice from the Ro*Tel. Great with the Frito Scoops. Thank Brad for his recipe!! ;)

    This was okay. It actually didn't taste that bad; but since it calls for cream cheese (which is white) and tomatoes. It turned the mixture pink. Not very appetizing. I ended up making something else instead of taking it to our get together.


I decided to re-do my "about me" page. The first one has been up since I joined in 2005. The other page was kind of long and strung out, so I decided to condense. I am originally from New Orleans and have also lived in Florida for many years. We recently moved back to the panhandle of FL after living for many years in Jacksonville. It is great to be back over here where the pace is slower and the people are nicer! I come from a long line of good cooks, and learned a lot from them, and I love to cook. Although I am not much of a baker, other than a decent pound cake or key lime pie. We like spicy food, but not so hot that you can't taste what the dish is really about. At this moment I am not working, but I am the caregiver for my elderly Mom. It has been nice to have the time to really cook and enjoy it, not just be trying to get something on the table. I have had time to garden and other things I just didn't really have time for when I worked. I may never go back to work :) I enjoy going to antique stores, thrift stores, estate sales and auctions. I collect a lot of different things so I am always looking for that "special" thing. I love all animals and I feed the birds, squirels, bunnies and just about anything else that comes along. I have 3 dogs, all rescues, and one big black cat who wandered up and decided he liked living with us and stayed Editing to add that I am down to 2 dogs now, sadly my Boomer left for the Rainbow Bridge on 6/22/09. RIP old friend I will always miss you. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Adopted by Westtextazzy <img src="" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza">Swapped with Jneen <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">Swapped with MyDesiGirl <img src="" border="0" alt="Salt and Pepper">Swappedwith Personal Chef <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped with CoffeeLover <a href="¤t=easterparticipationbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped MidwestMaven <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped with PickleLover <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">Adopted by BreezerMom <img src="" border="0" alt="L and M Swap">Swapped with Mailbelle <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped with AuntPaula <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">Swapped with TannersMominVA <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped with QueenBee <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Adopted Sweet T & Drunk Chef (preemie) <img src=""> Adopted by QueenBee <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Swapped with Free-Free <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
