    Here's a recipe for a dip I make during football season...

    It says "hot" keilbasa dip only because it's served warm.

    Make this as an appetizer using either a store-bought fully cooked kielbasa, or smoke one yourself and use it in the dip (probably your best bet). Make sure the kielbasa is still somewhat warm (NOT HOT!) when you make this dip, it will help to soften the cream cheese

    People LOVE this dip, it has a nice smoky flavor to it and it's nice and creamy. Very easy to re-heat in the microwave. It's delicious served cold, too.

    If you're have a big get-together, just double up the recipe.

    • 16-ounce package cream cheese
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 16 ounces fully cooked Kielbasa or polish sausage, finely chopped
    • 1 cup sliced green onions or scallions, divided
    • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
    In a 3 quart microwave safe bowl, heat cream cheese, uncovered, on high for 1 minute (or more, until soft)

    Stir the sour cream, milk, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce into the heated cream cheese. Add the kielbasa, ½ cup of the green onions and the parmesan cheese. Mix well.

    Microwave uncovered on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through, stirring once.

    Sprinkle with the remaining onions and serve with crackers or vegetables.

    sounds great-but what about the mayo being warmed- prolly best not to save it right ?

    I wouldn't save it for more than a few days, but I have made it and used it a day or two later with no ill effects.

    Hey Matty, would half and half work instead of milk? Milk is not good for me. Thanks, [​IMG] Terry

    I made this for some guests last night. We had about 6 different appetizers, meatballs, wraps, etc... This dip was the hit of the party. It got plenty of rave reviews. In fact, it's going in my favorite recipe file! Thanks!

    Excellent! I'm glad the dip was a hit! It certainly has been popular whenever and wherever I've served it. I've found that the green onions are key in getting the unique flavor.

    Yay! My first SMF contribution put to good use! [​IMG]

    Funny thing about the onions, my wife isn't a huge onion fan. I made the dip a night in advance and when she tried it prior to heating it she immediately said it was too "oniony" for her. Last night after everyone kept raving about it she figured she'd better give it another chance. Now she's hooked! I wouldn't change a thing about it.

    Hey Matty, just wanted you to know, the half and half worked great. [​IMG]
    I took your dip to a gathering of friends in my spirtual group, I made a BIG batch, they couldn't eat it all, but when I started to pack up the left overs, they split it up and took it home. I almost lost my arm. [​IMG]

    Dang it Gypsy, you know that coke goes flat when you cook it! [​IMG]

    Made a half batch last night as part of a small family Pot-luck dinner.
    You guessed it! ... everyone loved it as much as my Capanata recipe, including myself. Next time, I will leave the Kielbasa a little more chunkier.
    Thanks so much for sharing this one Monstah. [​IMG]

    My pleasure! I figure I'm not quite up to par with my smoking, so I have to contribute somehow! Glad things went over well!
