Hot Sausage Buffalo Dip Recipe
Now that the holidays are over we can get back to focusing on football. The first playoff games in college football were played yesterday. There is one more game to determine the champion. The NFL is getting ready for the playoffs. There is still a lot of tailgating to be done!
If you are like me, you probably overindulged during the holidays. I am looking for simple swaps to help keep me on track in the new year. I know I can’t make drastic changes to our diet and stay focused. I have to be somewhat sneaky. 😉
I made a few swaps for this dip, and I really couldn’t tell a difference. I swapped the regular cream cheese for Greek cream cheese. I used some reduced-fat cheese, and turkey sausage instead of regular sausage. If you aren’t sure about the swaps, you can always use the regular products. But honestly, we really couldn’t tell a difference.
We loved this dip. We also loved that it was a bit healthier for us. Yay! for Little Victories! A word of warning about this dip. It does have a kick from the wing sauce. Make sure to adjust the amount to your personal preference. We like it spicy, so we went all-in!
Hot Sausage Buffalo Dip
- 1 lb turkey sausage or regular sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 1 (8oz) package Greek cream cheese or regular cream cheese, softened
- ¼ to ½ cup buffalo wing sauce
- ¼ cup prepared ranch dressing
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 ½ cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 green onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 350.
In a mixing bowl combine sausage, cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, wings sauce, and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Pour mixture into a lightly greased 8×8 baking dish. Top the dip with chopped green onion and remaining ½ cup cheese.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Thinking church potluck/social…anyone try this in a crock pot?

I really need some Little Victories in my diet:)

My little victory today is that after working all night I am making pies to take to a family reunion tomorrow. firstname.lastname@example.org
Would low-fat cream cheese work in place of the Greek cream cheese? I've never seen that. This looks yummy.
Dip looks tempting!
Dip looks great and awesome giveaway!
Thanks for a healthier dip and the give away!
My victory is starting the day with a green smoothie (despite the fact that it is cold outside).
This dip looks great I love substituting reduced fat items in dishes.
My little victory for today is packing my lunch. Starting the new year off right by not eating out and hopefully I will stick to it! I packed leftovers of the Black Eyed Pea and Smoked Sausage Soup! Can't wait for lunch.
My little victory for today is that I know what I'll be making for dinner tonight. (And trust me- that's actually a HUGE victory here lately!) And FOR ONCE, my Razorbacks did what most others in the SEC West couldn't do this year- won a bowl game! WPS! 😉
Great looking dip Steph. Tailgating has been a sad affair for us SEC fans the past few days.
My little victory for today is that I got to sleep in and am feeling rejuvenated and productive!
Yum! I've never seen Greek cream cheese?
This dip sounds so delicious, gotta give it a try!
