I’m continuing on the dip parade for Super Bowl week and this one was far and away the big winner on Sunday. Before we get into how awesome this dip is (because it’s truly one of my top five favorite dips of all time), let’s talk about the name.

Hissy. Fit. Dip.

The back story (from White Lights on Wednesdays) is that this dip was served at an SEC football game tailgate party and when it disappeared quickly, one of the girls threw a “hissy fit” when she didn’t get any.

I have no idea if that story is true or not, but after having tasted it, I might do the same thing!

Now, about this actual dip. It’s super easy to throw together and is just hopelessly addicting. People were actually saying they had to walk away from it on Sunday before they ate it all.

Browned sausage is mixed together with cream cheese, sour cream, muenster cheese, Velveeta, chives and a few simple seasonings. It’s baked for an hour until it’s browned and bubbling and ready to be devoured. Be forewarned – I burned my tongue because I couldn’t wait to plunge a tortilla chip into this bad boy and I paid the price. Maybe let it cool down for a few minutes before you dig in.

Then, look out. Once you start you won’t be able to stop!

Hissy Fit Dip

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

This "Hissy Fit Dip" with the crazy moniker is a HUGE party hit - sausage, cream cheese, sour cream, two cheeses, chives and seasonings make this one absolutely irresistible!

Ingredients:

1 pound bulk pork sausage
16 ounces sour cream
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
8 ounces Velveeta, cut into small cubes
4 ounces Muenster cheese, grated
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dried ground sage

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9x9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, crumbling it as it cooks, until browned and cooked through. Remove the sausage from the skillet with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

3. Add the sausage and all remaining ingredients to a medium bowl and stir until well blended. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it into an even layer.

4. Bake for 1 hour, or until bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm with tortilla chips, crackers, veggies, or your favorite dipping vehicle.

Note #1: This dip can be assembled in advance, up to 1 day, covered and refrigerated before baking. You may need to add 5 more minutes to the baking time - just keep an eye on it and bake until browned and bubbling.

Note #2: This can also be made in a slow cooker, although it will obviously not get browned. Place the cooked sausage along with all of the other ingredients in the slow cooker, stir and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours, until all of the cheeses are melted, stirring occasionally.

    This looks amazing. Would a cheese other than velveeta work or is it essential for creaminess and taste?

      Marla B,
      Not sure if you don’t want all of Velveeta’s undesirable additives or you just don’t have it in your pantry. But Michelle has a recipe for a homemade Velveeta substitute! Check the recipe index.

      Hi Marla, You could substitute another cheese if you’d like.

    I don’t think that I have ever seen a recipe for a dip that has sausage in it, but this certainly looks divine, and I’ll just bet that it’s extremely addictive. Well, there goes my waistline again — LOL!

    I actually don’t have muenster available at my local grocery store. Is there another cheese you would recommend as a substitution?

      Hi Amy, Cheddar would work!

    This looks & sounds wonderful! Just curious – why an hour in the oven? I wouldn’t think it would take that long for the cheese to melt. I do want to try this though, no worries.

      Hi Ellen, Usually dips with cream cheese take awhile to really melt and get bubbly. Just watch for when it gets golden brown on top and is bubbling – then it’s ready!

    ALL THE CHEESES! This reminds me of a dip my friend brought over once and I’ve been dying to remake it/get the recipe from them. I would be okay doing a taste test between the two. You know, for science.

    This must be where our sausage dip comes from- only 3 ingredients! Brown a bulk sausage(Neeses, a local hot), stir in 8 oz. cream cheese, and 1 can Rotel (original).
    Bake until hot and bubbly. When it comes out of the oven, it is immediately surrounded by the crowd with chips- action continues until none is left! The best!

    This looks yummy! I would love to make this dip for SuperBowl Sunday but I’m not sure what bulk sausage is. Is it Italian sausage or Jimmy Dean/Jones sausage? Can you recommend a brand? Thanks!

      Bulk sausage is the sausage that comes in a tube. Yes, like Jimmy Dean.

      Italian sausage can also be bought “in bulk”, so I was also wondering what kind is used. I think the bulk is just so that you don’t have to squeeze it out of sausage links. I’d still like to know if it’s breakfast sausage or Italian (hot or mild) sausage.

        Hi Lynne, I used breakfast sausage.
