Sausage Cheesecake Appetizer
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + cooling Bake: 35 min. + chilling
At first I was skeptical about putting sausage in with cheesecake. And then I thought about it. And then I thought about it some more. And then I was like "Naw... I can't...", and finally I said what the hell, they're both things I love individually, lets see what happens.I'm so glad I did oh my gawwwwwwd!! somehow, the savory meat and the tangy sweet cream cheese go so well together it's just... it's just magic, man.I guess people were skeptical about dipping your fries in your Frosty's at first, and look how that caught on.
Outstanding. Better than one I've had a a 4 star restaurant .
This is a great recipe for an Appetizer or even served with breakfast. I add some of Bob Evans hot/spicy sausage for extra taste and less of the regular sausage and everyone can't get enough of it when i serve it.
My springform pan is 10" so I doubled the ingredients for the crust, and left the ingredients for the filling as written. The recipe says "24 servings" but in reality it is probably more like 100 servings. This is a very hearty spread, and I think if I make it again, I will use only 1/2 lb. sausage, making it more light, and easier to enjoy as an appetizer. As it is is, it seems more like a breakfast pie than an appetizer. At a party for 30, there is 3/4 of the pie leftover. Hope it freezes well.
