Pepperoni, tomatoes and olives dress up this cheesy baked dip. I serve it with breadsticks and wedges of baked Boboli. You can even prepare individual servings in ramekins if you like. —Kitti Boesel, Woodbridge, Virginia

My husband and I are retired, and I like to look for simple, speedy ways to cook. This thick cheesy dip, with the unusual addition of sausage, goes together in a jiffy. Accompanied by crackers or fresh veggies, it's a hearty appetizer for a football party or family gathering.
