This Sausage Cream Cheese Dip has been getting a lot of mileage this tailgating season.
My daughter Katie made the Jr. Redskins Cheerleading team! This has meant lots of practices, attending games and lots of tailgating. The driving over an hour in DC traffic (which usually means more like two hours) to get her to practice hasn’t been all that fun, but the tailgating part? That’s made it all worth it!
My parents came along for her very first game of the year, which isn’t an easy feat for two 80-year-olds, even if they are in great health. So I wanted to bring a dish I knew they’d both love! Sausage Cream Cheese Dip is always a hit, and this recipe is especially so since it uses Eckrich Smoked Sausage.

I bring Sausage Cream Cheese Dip to our tailgating gatherings, but I also make it when we’re “homegating” and are watching the game from our living room. I always love entertaining at home in the fall; we get a fire going if it’s cool enough and make plenty of delicious food for friends and family. People just pop in and out during the game since we like to keep our football gatherings pretty informal. But usually, everyone tries to get here early so they don’t miss out on this Sausage Cream Cheese Dip!
