    I want to hate it, but I love it...

    There seems to be no shortage of cream cheese or sausage on game days in Dixie.  Us Southerners are nothing if we don’t know how to get things to stick to the ribs of our beloveds. Here are two recipes where cream cheese and sausage marry once again.  You tell me if they are crowd pleasers!
