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!
This is a great dip & spread ~ I spread some on a piece of whole wheat toast before setting it out to be used as a dip! Flavorful without being overly spicy, & thus a dip that adds a nice diverson from the usual! Thank you for posting this recipe!
I wasn't at all sure that this would be so great, based on the sparse ingredient list, but it was stellar! I made it the day before, which allowed it to mellow, and added the minced onions (I don't think this would be nearly as good without). The bowl was emptied long before the party was over, a sure sign of a keeper. Thanks, Kathy for such an easy and delicious recipe. I'll be making it a lot.
I needed to add some sour cream because mine came out too runny and I added grated onion. Other than that it was fantastic, got the Emergency Department seal of approval and disappeared fast.
Absolutley great! I pureed an onion and added it to mayo and a touch of cream. I only added enough liquid to make a thich dip and used it as a sandwich filling instead. It was so very, very tasty!
Man sooo good! I didn't add the onions, but will try next time. Tastes better the next day... I added some fresh ground black pepper and about 1/8 tsp of chipolte pepper...yum! I had it in celery sticks...
