Guests can't resist this creamy, cheesy goodness presented in a sourdough bowl. I guarantee that the warm sausage and cheese dip will be the first appetizer to disappear at your next party. —Nadine Mesch, Mount Healthy, Ohio


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) sourdough bread
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • Baked pita chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut a thin slice off top of bread loaf. Hollow out bottom of loaf, leaving a 1/2-in.-thick shell. Cut removed bread into cubes; reserve.
  2. In a large skillet, cook and crumble sausage with onion and pepper over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 6-8 minutes; drain.
  3. In a bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in sour cream and Worcestershire sauce until creamy. Stir in cheeses and basil. Add sausage mixture; pour into bread bowl. Replace top; wrap in foil. Bake until heated through, about 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with bread cubes and pita chips.
