Hot, cheesy sausage dip with Italian-style seasonings is a great game-day

tradition when served with garlic toast.

  • 1 tablespoon fennel seed, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon anise seed, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

In a skillet, cook and crumble sausage over medium heat until no longer pink and lightly browned; drain.  In a microwave-safe bowl, place cheese cubes.  Microwave on high for 6 minutes; stirring every 2 minutes.  Add salsa, seasonings and sausage.  Microwave 2 minutes longer or until heated through.  Serve with garlic toast.
