Sausage and Cream Cheese Dip

This is a fail-proof oh-so-good dip recipe that is great for Super Bowl parties, appetizers, special events, and even as favorite comfort food. The best part… it only takes 3 ingredients.

I was first introduced to this recipe when I was in college during a family Christmas Party. It was the most delicious dip I ever had. After the first bite, I got the recipe and I make sure to always have it during an event.

Our annual family New Year Eve party, with my favorite sausage and cream cheese dip.

All you need is about 20 minutes and 3 ingredients. You would think that with only 3 ingredients, a masterpiece can’t be made but boy are you wrong.

Get your favorite breakfast sausage, I use Neese’s because I like the spicy and robust flavor. Be mindful if you get maple syrup flavor sausage it will come out sweet. I get mild to hot Rotel tomatoes and chiles but you can use original.

You can experiment with this recipe. I have tried it all, I have even used ground beef, ground turkey, chorizo, there is no right or wrong way.

Make sure to bring tortillas. I hope you enjoy it.

Simply Irresistible Banana Pudding

This banana pudding is simply irresistible because there is no baking and in less than 25 minutes, you will have a homemade dessert that will be one for the record books.

There is something about bananas and vanilla wafers that go together like peanut butter and jelly. My mom was the queen of desserts, and this is one dessert that makes me feel nostalgic every time I taste this.

This recipe will use cream cheese and lemon juice, and it is the best thing since sliced bread. The creaminess and slight twang from the lemon, accent the rich fruity flavor of the ripe bananas, givingthe vanilla wafers an extra sweetness your palate will thank you for.

For the best outcome use an electric mixer, it helps to get out any lumps from the cream cheese, and adding the vanilla pudding will have it blended into creamy goodness.

See how the pudding is smooth and slightly thick. That’s thanks to the cream cheese. Blend on medium-low, and don’t forget to use a spatula to scrape the sides.

A secret that has worked wonders, before starting the recipe, go ahead and cut up your bananas and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the slices. It will keep the bananas from turning brown quickly and add to the flavor of the banana pudding.

Start your layers with cookies and then bananas. Once the bananas are added, it will be easier for the vanilla wafers to stay placed on the side. Notice how the bananas still look freshly cut; that’s the lemon juice, it helps the bananas from turning brown.

When you pour the pudding mixture on top make sure you pour enough to get into the nooks and crannies and repeat with vanilla wafers and bananas, and pudding.  When you are finished with your layers, make sure to crumble up some of your leftover vanilla wafers for a pretty garnishment on top. It doesn’t matter how big or small the crumbles are.

You can also add whip cream if you would like or eat it like this.  I hope you enjoy it.

Notes

You can make this overnight for the flavors to set, or at least make and let chill for a few hours before serving.
