This Post Is All About The Best Keto Sausage Dip Ever
PORK SAUSAGE DIP
I don’t want to confuse you straight out of the gate, but this keto recipe can also be made with rotisserie chicken, ground chicken, or probably anything your brain and tummy can conjure. I wanted to throw that out there in the event sausage isn’t your thing but you’re still scanning this recipe.
Ok, our housekeeping is done. Now on to pork.
I live in the city and there are many grocery stores within varying distances. I chose the closest store to me to source this sausage and cheese dip.
This store didn’t have the breakfast sausage I was after and I was too lazy to try another store. I rolled through every aisle looking for that standard log in the shiny wrapper. I would have been happy with spicy, mild, breakfast, or even sweet sausage. But no sausage was to be found except for a pack of tiny links that I didn’t feel like de-casing.
However, they did have ground pork. That did the trick and it will for you, too. You can make this recipe with just ground pork or you can turn that pork into a sausage with a few simple steps.
Sausage Seasoning for Ground Pork
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
- 3/4 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon minced dried onion
- 2 teaspoons salt
Add all of the ingredients to your ground pork and skillet fry as the keto sausage dip instructs. Voila – you have sausage!

KETO ROTEL DIP
The core in all of the keto sausage dips I’ve seen on TikTok is the same 3 ingredients. Sausage, cream cheese, and Rotel.
Let us quickly discuss Rotel. I didn’t know anything about this product before keto and now I cannot live without it.
This link will bring you to the Original Rotel Website to view the different options they offer. But here’s the bottom line that will keep you and your carb goals happy. A 10-ounce can of the original diced tomatoes and green chilies Rotel has a net carb total of 9 grams. You’ll be using about half of a can or under 5 grams of net carbs. That’s it!
But, what is Rotel you ask? Except for your new best friend? As implied by the title, it’s a mixture of vine-ripened tomatoes and zesty green chilies along with the classic “secret spices” a lot of food companies add to their product description. If you’ve been following the keto diet for any length of time, you know that diced tomatoes can really up that daily carb total which is no bueno. So, this product can give you some of that tomato happiness that you’re after if the recipe (or intended use) will also work with the flavor profile of the zesty green chilies.
A keto sausage dip is one of the best uses of a low-carb can of Rotel and hence why it’s so popular. And, yummy. It’s so yummy!
CHEESY SAUSAGE DIP
When you’re in the mood for a dip, what’s your goal? I guess the first questions I ask myself are: hot or cold and what do I want to use as my dipping utensil?
There is nothing wrong in my book with the classic cold dips like ranch with veggies. I could smash a bowl of homemade ranch with asparagus and celery.
There is also nothing wrong with a warm cheesy dip. I like to make this one on special nights to enjoy as an appetizer before dinner. Because why not? Low-carb tortillas crisped in the oven and cut into little triangles make the perfect dipper.
Here’s a side view of what your cheese keto sausage dip could like like.
EASY SAUSAGE DIP
If everyone is doing the 3 ingredient Rotel sausage dip, I knew I had to try it. I’m a food joiner. But, I wanted to put my own spin on it.
After a little keto dip research, I landed on a chicken alfredo version. Which then took me down a path of all the different proteins you could enjoy in dip form. And then, why wouldn’t a cheesy alfredo base with a pop of flavor from Rotel work with sausage? I couldn’t come up with an answer that derailed me from this thought.
Picture it – a touch of butter to saute a fresh clove of minced garlic bringing fragrant life to your kitchen. Next, velvety heavy cream meets the pan along with softened cream cheese and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Season with a touch of salt, pepper, and nutmeg to round out the flavors.
This is the perfect base for an alfredo keto dip. All that’s left is your sausage, Rotel, and if you dare, a little mozzarella to broil for that golden top.
Easy. This take is so easy. 1 pan, 1 colander, and 1 oven-safe dish. That’s it.
