Sausage Dip with Grilled Peppers and Onions
This easy sausage dip is creamy, cheesy and loaded with grilled peppers and onions A perfect party appetizer for your summer BBQ or cookout.
- 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
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.
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.
