Most of you are probably thinking, “What’s with the name of this dip?” That’s a valid question. So here’s a little history…
Rumor has it that the first time this dip was served at an SEC tailgating party; it was so popular that it was gone in no time flat! One uppity Southern belle who missed tasting the new recipe was distraught and pitched a big hissy fit, hence the name.
SEC = Southeastern Conference NCAA football for my non-college football enthusiast readers.
Basically, we’re talking about a dip so good people literally go crazy over it, and who wouldn’t want to eat that? This first time we had this dip I made to take to my mom’s house for Christmas. My mom LOVED the dip! Even Mike who was weary with the addition of breakfast style sausage in a dip got on the Hissy Fit Dip train.
This recipe is a guaranteed winner for your game day party. If you want to make this dip a little easier – AKA hissy fit dip crock pot style – grab my recipe Slow Cooker Hissy Fit Dip. Just mix everything together, and forget about it while you prep the rest of your munchies! A big key to this hissy dip is to let it rest after baking. Right out of the oven it’s a bit liquidy (like in the video), but as the dip cools it will solidify and look more like the picture below. Do skip the resting time!!

Hissy Fit Dip
- 1 pound breakfast-style pork sausage
- 16 ounces sour cream
- 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
- 8 ounces Velveeta cut into small cubes
- 4 ounces shredded Muenster cheese Monterey Jack would work too
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives cut into tiny pieces
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon dried ground sage
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place a large skillet over medium heat and cook the sausage until browned. Be sure to break the sausage into small pieces while it cooks.
- Drain the sausage on a paper towel-lined plate, and then place in a large mixing bowl.
- To the sausage, add the sour cream, cream cheese, Velveeta, shredded cheese, chives, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and sage. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to mix everything together.
- Once the ingredients are evenly combined, transfer the dip to the prepared baking dish. Use the rubber spatula or the back of the spoon to spread the ingredients evenly in the dish.
- Bake for 1 hour until bubbly and golden brown. Carefully remove from the oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving. (Really, give it time to set up. The dip will be a bit liquidy right out of the oven.)
- Serve warm with crackers or crostini.

Thanks for sharing. I made this twice in 2 days. Everyone loved it!
I made this for a Christmas Eve gathering and though I was excited about the recipe and followed it as given, the dip was underwhelming.
As I casually inquired about how people were enjoying the dip, I was told, “it’s ok”.
It was worth trying, but I won’t make it again.
