If yesterday was diptastic, today is even more so. I like to joke that today’s offering is (when coupled with chips), a complete meal (if we still attribute to the four food groups).
I know, but hear me out.
It contains only three ingredients: cream cheese, sausage, and a can of diced tomatoes and chilies (commonly known by the most popular brand-name of the product, Rotel). So, the chips would add a grain to the already “healthy” mix of meat, vegetables, and dairy.
Work with me here. I promise it makes sense.
Fine then! (Throws a mini tantrum!)
Anyway, one of my mom’s former coworkers used to bring this recipe to potlucks at work. My mom asked for the recipe, so here it is!
White Sausage Rotel
2 (8 ounce) bricks cream cheese (You can go all healthy and make it with reduced fat)
1 pound breakfast sausage (The kind you get in the roll. If you have access to an Aldi, get it from Aldi! If not, Jimmy Dean or store brand works well.)
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies (Rotel)
Brown the sausage, crumbling it as it cooks, in a skillet over medium heat. Drain the grease. Add the can of tomatoes and the cream cheese. Stir until combined and the cream cheese is melted.
Serve with chips (or eat with a spoon).
This recipe is Muffin Approved.
