Summer has all but officially started. The hot weather seems to be here to stay for a while now. My Facebook feed has photos from the beach along with posts from my teacher friends about the last day of school.

Last weekend, my husband and I went out to my friend’s camp in the country for a birthday celebration/summer kickoff party. It was a great way to get in the summer groove. I got to kayak and see a beautiful sunset over the water, enjoy a wonderful potluck, and roast (or shall I say burn) marshmallows by a fire for some yummy s’mores. I like my marshmallows nice and toasty. Do you char your marshmallows or just lightly toast them? Oh, I made pizza dip and key lime dip and they were both a huge hit.

This sausage dip makes another great appetizer for all your summer gatherings. I used hot Italian sausage links for a bit of a kick, but you could use mild Italian or even another type of sausage like bratwurst. I recommend grilling the sausages for extra flavor, but you could opt to cook them your preferred way. My husband grilled these for me at like 10 am on a Saturday so I could shoot this dish. 🙂 Grilled peppers and onions pair with the sausage for a classic summer combination turned into dip form. The dip is baked until warm and topped with mozzarella cheese. Doesn’t that just sound perfect for summer?

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Italian sausage links, cooked and diced into small pieces
  • 1 8oz block cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced and grilled (I used 1 red, 1 yellow, and 1 green)
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, sliced and grilled

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Using a mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and sour cream until mixture is creamy. 
  • Fold in 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. 
  • Spread cream cheese mixture evenly into small casserole or pie dish. 
  • Evenly place diced sausage over dip. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Measure 1/2 cup of the grilled pepper/onions (you may have a little left over) and dice into smaller pieces. Set aside. 
  • Remove dip from the oven. Spread peppers/onions evenly over the sausage and top with remaining cheese. Place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese on top is melted.

Notes

For grilling the peppers/onions, I use a method similar to this recipe. You could also roast them in the oven if you prefer. 
I'd suggest grilling the sausage, however, you can cook them a different way if you prefer.
