How to Make Buffalo Dip
Buffalo stovetop dip is best served warm. If you are using raw sausage, start by cooking the meat in a large skillet on the stovetop, and then drain the grease. Once you have done that, follow these simple steps to make the best Buffalo cream cheese dip you’ve ever tasted:
- Add the cream cheese, sour cream and Buffalo sauce to the drained sausage, and stir until melted
- Stir in the chopped celery and blue cheese crumbles
- When the blue cheese has just started to melt, transfer to a chafing dish or a small crock pot and serve.
Easy Substitutions: While we love this dip as is, there are some great substitutions that make this dish just as tasty!
- Cheese: Try Velveeta in place of, or in addition to, cream cheese!
- Meat: Try turkey or pork sausage! For maximum ease, try the precooked sausage crumbles from the frozen food section!
What to Serve with Buffalo Dip
This dip is a hearty and substantial dish, perfect for large crowds. It’s also a bit on the heavy side, so serve it with dippables that will hold up. Pita chips, celery and carrot sticks, crackers or bread sticks are great options. Corn chip scoops are also super popular for serving with Buffalo cheese dip.
I love to serve this Buffalo sausage cheese dip along with other buffalo inspired appetizers like Buffalo Chicken Sliders or Baked Buffalo Chicken Tenders. I just cannot get enough of that spicy buffalo hot sauce flavor!
If you are trying to stay ahead of party planning chaos, you may be wondering can you freeze buffalo dip? This buffalo dip recipe is dairy-rich and unfortunately, dairy tends to curdle in the freezer. While this usually doesn’t affect the flavor of your dishes, it may make for an unappealing presentation. But don’t worry this dip is so good, I doubt you’ll ever have to worry about leftovers!
You can also make it ahead of time and store in the refrigerator for several days. Just reheat in the microwave and serve.
