Recipe Fri Sep 03 2010
It's that time of the year again: football season. Which means that the glorious activity known as tailgating is upon us. When I look back on my favorite college football memories, sure I remember the time Alabama won the National Championship, but what I really took away from all those tailgates was Ft. Payne Tailgate dip. I've heard this recipe go by many other names - Boygee Dip, Sausage Dip (really creative...), Meaty Goodness, but no matter what you call it, it's a hit. People fawn over this dip like crack. I can personally guarantee that if you bring this around for a Bears game you will be invited back to more parties/tailgates. Best part: it could not be easier to make!
- 1 package of sausage
- 1 8oz. box of cream cheese
- 1 can rotel tomatoes
Heat a large skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, add sausage and start to break apart using a wooden spoon. Cook until the sausage is golden brown. Drain off the grease.
Add cream cheese into skillet with sausage and reduce heat to low. Slowly stir the cream cheese until it's melted.
Finally add in the whole can of rotel, including juices, and stir until all ingredients are combined.
Transfer to a bowl and serve with tortilla chips or any other vessel that can get this into your mouth.
This dip can be eaten hot or cold (and trust me people will eat it any way they can get it), but I prefer it hot. Enjoy!
