Ingredients:

Italian Sausage Pesto Dip

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 oz basil pesto
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 lb Polidori Mild Italian Sausage Links remove casings

Bruschetta Topping

  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Toasted baguette slices for serving
Directions:
  • Start by removing the casing from the sausages and ground the sausage into tiny pieces on the stove.
    In a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, pesto, salt, and pepper until well mixed, about 2 minutes on medium speed. On the lowest speed, gently add the Italian sausage in.
  • In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the bruschetta topping. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the Italian Sausage Dip in an ovenproof serving container such as a cast-iron skillet or ceramic baking dish.
  • Bake for 10–12 minutes to allow everything to heat up, but do not overbake or the pesto will break.
  • To serve, sprinkle the bruschetta topping over the warm dip and serve with toasted baguette slices or crackers.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lbs Polidori Hatch Chile Cheese Links
  • 8 jalapeño peppers
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 6 slices of bacon 
  • 1 ½ tbsp Revolution bbq seasoning 
  • 1 package of crescent roll dough 
  • 2 tbsp melted butter 
Directions:
  • Cut your bacon into small pieces, add to pan and cook over medium heat until crispy. Lay bacon on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the grease. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350℉, and pop your Hatch Chile Cheese links for about 15-20 min.
  • Slice a 1/2 inch off the tops and bottoms of your jalapeño peppers. Then, cut lengthwise to split in half and remove seeds with a spoon. 
  • Make the filling by combining softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese, crispy bacon bits, and BBQ seasoning. Mix to incorporate. 
  • Fill each jalapeño piece with the filling you prepared and place a slice of Hatch Chile Cheese sausage in the center. 
  • Cut each piece of crescent roll dough in half.  Then, wrap each filled jalapeño with a piece of crescent roll dough. Brush each piece of dough with melted butter. 
  • Put these in the oven and cook at 350°F for 20-30 minutes until the dough is golden brown and cooked all the way through. Serve!
