We put an app-worthy spin on classic gumbo with this delicious recipe. Start with Andouille sausage, red bell pepper, celery, green onions, sliced okra, garlic, shrimp, and creole seasoning over medium-high heat. After a few minutes of sautéing, stir in cream cheese and asiago. Crown the mixture with a panko and butter mixture, and place under the broiler for a few minutes to put the finishing touches on this crowd-pleasing dip. Serve it with breadsticks, veggie slices, crackers, or sliced baguette. The best part? It’s ready in 30 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler. Heat oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; sauté 2 minutes. Add bell pepper and celery; sauté 3 minutes. Add onions, okra, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add shrimp and Creole seasoning; sauté 2 minutes or until shrimp is almost done.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium-low. Add cream cheese; stir until cheese melts. Stir in Asiago. Cook 3 minutes or until mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Combine butter and panko; toss to coat. Sprinkle over dip. Broil 1 minute or until topping is browned. Garnish, if desired; serve with desired dippers.
