First - if you're getting this in the morning - turn on your TV! I'll be on Star64 at 840am with the Local 12 news team!
Today a giant wheel of cheese was delivered to my door. I love being a food blogger.

Well Jarlsberg is actually a Norwegian cheese - it was made by Swiss cheesemakers who then moved to Norway - which is why most people think it's Swiss cheese. It's very similar.
When I asked around about what to make with it - there was a resounding - MAKE THE KROGER DIP! So here I go.
Stir and you're done!
I chose some simple water crackers for these because Swiss is a pretty strong cheese but after tasting - you could definitely use some of those awesome onion crackers. I also couldn't find those at Kroger - so water crackers it was. Stay tuned - after the recipe - for ways to use the leftover dip!

So we always end up with leftover dip - and what do you do with it? Here are a couple of ideas that I've used with this and Spinach Artichoke Dip - it really works!
* Heat in a skillet and add a little cream - then toss with cooked pasta and you've got a delicious pasta sauce!
* Take a chicken breast or nice piece of salmon and top the whole filet with the leftover dip - then bake!
I hate to waste leftovers but I also get tired of just the dip on its own - so it's great to have alternative uses!
