Food Hussy Recipe: Jarlsberg Cheese Dip (+ what to do with leftover dip!)


Jarlsberg Dip is a staple around Cincinnati - it's one of the best selling dips at Kroger and people love it! I never realized just how easy it is to make!

The ingredients are simple: shredded Jarlsberg cheese, mayonnaise, red onion, a little milk and a little lemon juice. Stir and you're done! Be sure to make it ahead of time so the flavors have time to meld in the fridge. The lemon juice is just a touch but makes a big difference.

  • 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!
