Bacon Sausage Dip – Low Carb and Keto

February 4, 2018

The question people ask me the most is
“How do I stay on track when food is the focus of so many activities & parties?”
 
Truly, I always bring something that I know I can eat.  
Often I am able to find parts of different food items that fit into my eating plans.
I don’t have to sample everything. I know it feels that way.
But I chose to eat the way I do to feel the way I feel! 
 
The first time I made this dip,
I was attempting to mimic a cheese ball that I buy at the grocery store.
But then I thought adding bacon would make it better.
So I did.
Then I thought sausage would be good as well.
And it sure was! 
And so this evolved into a favorite dip for my family.

 
I’ve brought this to a few different gatherings
where I was worried about how I would be able to stay on track. 
I know what you are thinking,
can’t you go off track sometimes, have a cheat meal.
For sure I can…BUT
that excuse can get very slippery.  
There are so many times where I could easily 
snack a little here, nibble a little there, and before long, I’ve fallen off the horse!
 
So this is my go too!
 
Bacon Sausage Dip
 
I always pair it with cucumbers and mini bell peppers.
Can I add something about mini bell peppers?
The bag says 3 peppers or 85 grams makes a serving.
I ALWAYS weigh my serving of veggies.  
You get more than 3 peppers! 
So weigh your veggies for sure!

 

Whatever kind of party you are having,
remember this awesome dip if you are following
keto or low carb lifestyles!
 
You will not regret it!

1.2g carbs | 24g fat | 11g protein | 268 calories
 
1 lb pack of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 lb sausage, cooked
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c full fat sour cream

4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 tsp garlic powder

Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo until well mixed.
