The inspiration for this dish comes from one of my favorite family's I used to nanny for. The mom would make a similar, but not so healthy, version of this dip for all kinds of get togethers. This dip was always a HUGE hit, but used some questionable brands that made it a no-no for me and a complete indulgence for others.
When I removed gluten from my life, I was determined to recreate this dip to not only be gluten free, but healthier and guilt free so that I could enjoy it more often!
Here is my version, with a nod to the Geyser family!
This is great served as a dip with gluten free chips or veggie sticks, or as a creamy sauce on gluten free pasta, or even as a topping on your favorite grass-fed, uncured hot dog!
As a dip, this is perfect for those who need a last minute, quick, and DELICIOUS dish to bring to any party or gathering! Every time I make it, its gone before I can even have a second bite, so I highly recommend making a double batch and keeping a small portion to the side for yourself.
This recipe is nutrient dense, lower carb, grain free, gluten free, nut free, egg free, primal, & keto friendly!
$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?
First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!
You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!
This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.
Contains calcium, a key root chakra nutrient.
Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.
Contains red colored foods. Red vibrates at about the same frequency as the root chakra. So, eating red foods helps to maintain the proper root chakra frequency.
This recipe is full of healthy fats and/or oils, which supports the sacral chakra.
Contains green colored foods, which support and balance the heart chakra.
$ A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:To make this dairy free, use an alternative nut based cream cheese like Kite Hill brand.
If you can't find gluten free sausage, or are avoiding nightshades, I have a recipe for a nightshade free breakfast sausage spice mix that you can use to make your own! Find the recipe HERE. You can also make this vegetarian and use a meat alternative; I have made it this way for vegetarian friends in the past and its just as tasty!
This is also delicious as a vegetarian dip, using a crumbled "sausage" meat alternative instead of the sausage.
To make this dairy free, use an alternative nut based cream cheese like Kite Hill brand.

Quick-N-Easy Delicious Sausage Dip
Prep time: 2 minutes Cook time: 15-20 minutes Yield: 1 big bowl of dip
1 lb. ground breakfast sausage, gluten free
10 oz. can of tomatoes/chilies (like rotel)

8 oz. of cream cheese
How to Create this Recipe:
In a medium pot, add 1 tsp. of avocado oil and heat over medium heat. Then add the ground breakfast sausage and cook until cooked through and the outside is a bit crispy and golden brown.
Then, remove as much of the excess fat from the sausage as you can.
Next, add the tomatoes and chiles to the pot. Stirring to incorporate.
Then, add the block of cream cheese, breaking it apart into smaller pieces with a big wooden spoon once it is in the pot. Continue to break down the cheese as it heats up and melts, stirring the dip all the while.
Once the cream cheese is melted through, you're ready to pour this delicious dip into a serving dish! This goes great with veggie sticks, chips and crackers.
