Ingredients in Keto Sausage Dip
Can you believe that this rich and creamy sausage dip has only five ingredients?
Sausage - I use Italian sausage without casings.
Spinach - frozen is fine! If you are using fresh make sure to drain any liquid.
Sundried Tomatoes - I use dried and just give them a quick chop with kitchen shears. They add great flavor. I also love them in my sun dried tomato quiche.
Cream Cheese - regular cream cheese works well but use garlic and chive for extra flavor.
Mozzarella - pre-shredded saves time.
And a little salt is all you need for a delicious sausage dip.
How to Make Sausage Dip
First Step: To make my keto sausage dip recipe the first thing you need to do is cook the sausage.
Expert Tip: I like to buy ground sausage that does not have casings to save the step of having to remove them. If you are using sausage links the easiest way to remove the casing is to cut all the way down the side of it with kitchen shears. That saves the (kinda gross) step of having to squeeze the sausage out of the casing.
Second Step: Once you brown the sausage you add in the spinach, sundried tomatoes, and salt. Once the spinach is cooked you turn off the heat and add the cubed cream cheese. Stir until that melts and transfer to a pie plate or small baking dish.
Third Step: Top with the shredded mozzarella and bake until the cheese melts.
Salsa: One classic variety of salsa dip is to use cream cheese and canned tomatoes with green chiles.
Italian: Add sauteed onions and peppers in the dip instead of the spinach and sundried tomatoes. It tastes just like the classic sausage, peppers, and onion subs my husband loves.
What to serve with Sausage Dip
I serve my sausage dip recipe with fathead pita dippers.
To make fathead pita just bake your favorite fathead pizza dough in small circles without any toppings. When it's cooked cut into triangles. You can bake a few extra minutes if you want to crisp the edges. These also freeze well. I make a big batch, freeze in a plastic storage bag, and then reheat a few when I want them with a dip or as a side to soup or salad.
This dip is also great with fresh veggies such as thinly sliced zucchini and sweet peppers.
- Preheat oven to 400 (if serving immediately).
- Brown the sausage in a large skillet.
- Add the spinach, sundried tomatoes, cream cheese, and salt. Stir until the cream cheese melts and is thoroughly incorporated.
- Spread in a pie plate or small casserole dish. Top with the mozzarella cheese. Refrigerate if making ahead.
- If serving immediately bake for 20 minutes.
- If preparing ahead of time bake at 400 for 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden and the dip is hot in the middle.
