This copycat jarlsberg cheese dip is a cinch to make and tastes so much fresher than the grocery store variety.
Is Jarlsberg Cheese Dip a regional thing? It is a staple at my Kroger deli which is the grocery store chain that is local to me. Are you familiar with this cheese dip? Jarlsberg cheese originates in Norway and has holes in it like a Swiss cheese. Its sweet and nutty flavor is similar to Swiss cheese as well.
Grocery store Jarlsberg Cheese Dip is made from just three ingredients which are shredded Jarlsberg, mayonnaise and red onion. My copycat Jarlsberg dip is the same except I added a little chopped fresh parsley for color and Worcestershire sauce and salt for flavor.
You might be wondering why to make this simple dip at home? Freshness, flavor and cost are my reasons. Pre-made dips in general cost more per pound than something made at home. With a homemade version I can control the amount of mayonnaise in the dip because I find the store variety to be too heavy-handed on the mayo. And trust me, this homemade version tastes better because it is fresher.
