Nutty and flavorful, this dip will go in a minute. This recipe does not require baking. Because grated cheese measurements vary, adjust dip to desired consistency; add more liquid if too dry, more cheese if too wet.
- 2 cups jarlsberg cheese, coarse grated
- 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise, not salad dressing
- 1⁄4 cup milk or 1⁄4 cup half-and-half cream
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup minced onion (this is an option)
- Gently combine all ingredients.
- Refrigerate for 2-hours before serving.
- Serve with crackers.
- Can be made several days in advance.
I have been making a similar recipe for awhile now. I too am unwilling to spend $8 a pound for the dip made at that chain store. I found it to be inexpensive and easily made with just 3 ingredients. *8 oz. shredded mozzarella *1 medium sweet or red onion minced *1 C (give or take) mayonnaise. yield: over 1 lb. cost: about $2.50
Kathy, I thank you for the money a very large group of us is about to save. A local chain grocer sells this for $8. a lb. and it's made with non fancy swiss. Followed this recipe but I cheated and went with the cheap swiss, Kraft mayo, 1/2 & 1/2 and yellow onion. SUPERB! Will sub green for the yellow onion next time...which will be this coming weekend! Made for 2008 cookbook tag.
I used sweet onions and added some pepper and a little sour cream. The flavor is really good, but I'm not sure about the grated cheese, it makes it a little awkward to scoop. Overall really tasty though, thanks!
