Two Recipes, Both Heart-Stranglingly Delicious

The possibility of a Pajiba Scrabble Sex Orgy in the near future has got me thinking - what kind of appetizers would naked nerds enjoy?

Here are two of my favorites:

Spicy Sausage Dip

1 package (tube?) Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage (I told you they'd be heart-strangling)
1 package cream cheese
1 can Ro-tel diced tomatoes with green chilies

Brown sausage in large skillet. Add cream cheese and melt, then add Ro-tel. Blend ingredients and heat through. Serve with tortilla or corn chips.

Sweet and Satisfying Spread

1 log of goat's cheese
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 -1/2 cup caramel sauce, warmed
1 baguette, sliced

Place cheese on large serving platter. Drizzle warmed caramel sauce over cheese, then sprinkle with nuts and craisins. Spread on baguette slices. Eat more than you planned because it's just that fucking scrumptious.

Oooh Kolby, that sausage dip sounds orgy-licious.

I make a bad-ass spinach/artichoke dip that would go well with these (I don't measure anything, so this is a guesstimate):

1 box frozen spinach, thawed and drained.
1 jar of marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
2 cups sour cream
2 cups mayo
1 cup softened cream cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Crushed red pepper to your liking (I like a little more for a kick)

Mix everything in saucepan, serve hot in bread bowl with bagel chips, pumpernickel or rye bread, tortilla chips, etc.

Just reading those caused my heart to explode, the remains melting into a buttery puddle of bliss.

Thanks so much for sharing those!

You minx; I'm going to have to ignore that comment, as much as I'd like to respond, "Sweet of you to say . . . you're probably right." (a la Mr. Murray in GD)
