Better Cheddar Cheese Dip

Better Chedda rCheese Dip from The Hungry Goddess

This Better Cheddar Cheese Dip comes with a warningWARNING!  You may become addicted to the extra scrumptious blending of multiple addictive-already ingredients like cheese, bacon, and walnuts.  You may develop paranoid thoughts that others will attempt to eat your Better Cheddar Cheese Dip.  If this occurs, make extra and hide it from the others so you can eat it ALL BY YOURSELF.  

Many moons ago, my Mom began making this dip.  It was based on a dip from an awesome little gourmet cheese shop in our town and soooo addictive.  And this recipe has survived the test of time.  Now the kids in our family ask for it and consume it in minutes flat.  We always hold some back or we would never get any.

Favorite pairings are Carr’s crackers – something plain and crunchy that lets the Better Cheddar Cheese Dip speak for itself.

You have been warned.  Now go make it!

    I had this cheese for the first time at a party in Hockessin and was determined that I could make it myself. I’m so happy you’ve figured it out for me. Thank you. It’s really wonderful.

    I’ve been making this dip for years (and been to the Back Burner in Delaware). I don’t use bacon, but a dash of liquid smoke – everyone loves it!
