  • 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


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. Using a mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and sour cream until mixture is creamy. 

  3. Fold in 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. 

  4. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly into small casserole or pie dish. 

  5. Evenly place diced sausage over dip. 

  6. Bake for 10 minutes.

  7. Measure 1/2 cup of the grilled pepper/onions (you may have a little left over) and dice into smaller pieces. Set aside. 

  8. 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.

Recipe 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.
