Cheesy Italian Sausage Dip

Another pinterest recipe for yall! I love cooking, but I just don't cook as much as I bake. I'm trying to fix that a little, so for starters, I'll make fattening, creamy, delicious dips. This is called 'The Perfect Super Bowl Dip' on pinterest, but I didn't make it for the super bowl and it was still perfect :) Everyone loved it and there were no left-overs. This should be on your menu for your next get together. Here's what you'll need
 Mayo, cream cheese, sour cream, milk, onion, garlic, shredded parmesan cheese, banana peppers, spinach, red bell pepper, and Italian sausage. Combine sausage, garlic, bell pepper, and onion in a lightly oiled skillet
Cook, stirring constantly. Once the sausage is browned and the onions are semi-translucent
Remove from heat. Drain if there is a lot of left-over grease; set aside to cool a little. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, mayo, cheese, sour cream, and milk
Whisk together until well combined. Add sausage mixture and sliced sliced & drained banana peppers
Fold in. Add the chopped spinach to make it healthy
Gently stir in until the spinach is all throughout the dip. Scoop finished dip into a greased dish. Spread out evenly and sprinkle with more shredded cheese
Bake to perfection. Serve with tortilla chips, bread, veggies, and crackers. Now, this is not the most photogenic food, but it is absolutely delish
No doubt, it's cheesy. Enjoy! To reheat, microwave or place back in a greased pan and place in the oven and rebake as you did the first time.
