Winter’s over, but don’t put your crockpot away. Hot weather is perfect crockpot weather – slow cookers don’t heat up the whole house, and the absolute handiness of a meal or snack or side ready to put on the table when everybody gets home is just too handy to pass by.
This particular recipe is for our special Texas Sausage Dip, and it’s delicious. Easy to make, too. Here’s how:
16 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup cooked finely diced sausage
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup Texas Pepper Jelly’s Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly
1/4 cup shredded pineapple, drained
1/4 cup hot sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
What to do:
Put everything in your crockpot, replace the lid, set the dial to “low,” and go to work. Eight or so hours later, remove the lid and stir to make sure all ingredients are absolutely thoroughly blended. turn off the crockpot and let it “set” for an hour or two.
After dinner, pour the dip into a big bowl, surround it with breadsticks, raw veggies, and crackers of all kinds, put it on the coffee table, and let your family go to it while they watch TV.
If there’s a football game or any kind of sports event on TV, even better.
I hope you laid in plenty of these ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator, because everybody will want a fresh batch the next night. They can’t have the leftovers because there won’t be any.
