Tips for the best sausage dip
Sausage – Try and remove any excess grease from the sausage. This will help prevent the dip from being runny. You can also use half the amount of sausage if you prefer a more cheesy dip.
Cheese – Cut the Velveeta into cubes. This will help it melt faster and prevents burning.
Cooking method – This dip can also be prepared in the microwave or the slow cooker.
Additions: Try topping with diced green onion for a little color. You could also add in diced bell peppers to the mixture.
Want it even spicier? Stir in a few splashes of hot sauce.
Like more protein? Top with crumbled, cooked bacon.
