    1 (1-lbs.) pkg. Pernell's Old Folks Sausage
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee unsalted butter
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    ½ c. wheat beer, such as hefeweizen
    3 c. Hy-Vee heavy whipping cream
    1 (8-oz.) pkg. Kraft finely shredded Colby Jack cheese, divided

    Things To Grab

    • Large skillet
    • Fine-mesh strainer
    • Whisk
    • 2 large baking sheets


    1. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sausage, breaking up large pieces, until browned and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove sausage from pan and place in a fine mesh strainer to remove excess fat; set aside

    2. In same skillet, melt butter; whisk in flour. Cook, whisking constantly, for 30 seconds or until flour smells nutty. Whisk in beer and heavy cream until combined. Bring mixture to boil, whisking often. Allow mixture to boil 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat. Whisk in cheese, reserving 1/2 cup for garnish, until melted. Sir in cooked sausage and season with black pepper.

    3. If desired, cut up one Hy-Vee Bakery Garlic crown and place on a large baking sheet. Hollow the center of the remaining Hy-Vee Bakery garlic crown and fill with dip. Top dip with 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Bake both loaves on large baking sheets in a 400 degree oven until cheese melts, about 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired and serve immediately.
