  • 1 Zatarain's sausage link
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1.5 cups beer*
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped


  • Cook the sausage according to the package instructions. I grilled mine for 10 minutes. Then dice the sausage into small pieces.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, heat the heavy cream and beer on medium heat until hot and smoking (not bubbling), about 5 minutes. Stir the mixture constantly.
  • In a small bowl, mix together 1 tbsp of water and 1 tbsp of arrowroot powder. Then add it to the skillet and mix until fully combined. Then begin adding the cheese, 1/4 of a cup at a time and mixing constantly until smooth. Next, stir in the sausage and half the chives.
  • Garnish the beer cheese dip with red onion, tomatoes, and the remaining chives. Serve hot with your favorite chips and vegetables for dipping.
