Italian Sausage And Cheese Dip
BRING TO: Guy's night: also great for game day parties.
Prep time: 45 minutes
Serves: 48 people
½ to 1 lb. of Italian Sausage (or your favorite sausage)
8 oz. Smoked Gouda Cheese, cut in cubes
8 oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese, cut in cubes
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. garlic, minced (approximately 3 cloves)
1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
Preheat oven to 350° F. Brown the sausage, crumbling it into small chunks as it cooks. Drain the sausage very well. Layer the bottom of an oil-sprayed small baking dish with the drained sausage. Sprinkle the Italian Seasoning and minced garlic on top of the sausage. Roughly spread the sour cream and mayonnaise on top. Place the cubed cheeses on the very top.
Bake attentively at 350° F for approximately 30 minutes, stirring the mixture every 10 minutes. Bake until the cheeses have thoroughly melted. Do not over bake.
Serve warm with New York Style Brand Panetini.
Alternate Preparation: After sausage is browned, combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe container and heat on high setting, stirring every few minutes until dip is warm and cheese is melted.
