HOW LONG IS SAUSAGE DIP GOOD FOR?

This dip will be fine in the fridge for 3 – 4 days. Make sure to store it in an airtight container (these glass containers are my favorite for all leftovers) to keep it good for as long as possible.

I recommend reheating in the microwave but you could also use the oven or even put it on warm in a slow cooker.

CAN YOU FREEZE SAUSAGE DIP?

You can freeze this dip for up to 3 months. Let it cool completely and then put it in an airtight freezer-safe container.

When you are ready to serve it, let it defrost overnight in the fridge and then reheat in the microwave.
