“This is a spread I have been making for many years. It goes great with crackers (Saltines are my favorite) or with thinly sliced cocktail breads. (I'm not really sure why it was ever called a "dip"... it is definitely a "spread"). It is a very quick recipe and super easy to make. Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated for ease of serving at a party, just let sit out of the fridge for about 20 minutes before serving to soften a bit. Enjoy!”
1 1/2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup minced onion
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 lb braunschweiger sausage (I like Dubuque, but your favorite brand will work)
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • crackers (your favorite) or cocktail bread, for serving (your favorite)


  1. Heat oil in small fry pan and saute the minced onions 8-10 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until softened. Remove from heat and drain. Set aside.
  2. Remove Braunschweiger from its wrapper and mix it in a bowl with the softened cream cheese. Once combined well, add in sauteed onion and black pepper.
  3. Serve along side your choice of crackers or cocktail bread (or even try some raw veggies with it).
  4. Enjoy!
