Helpful hints

  • Dip stores well, which enhances cheese and garlic flavors. If storing for more than three days, reduce blue cheese and garlic.
  • Natural, unprocessed sharp cheddar can substitute for blue cheese. Recipe limits the blue cheese to 1-1/3 teaspoon per serving.
  • Other spices can be added to taste. Experiment!
  • This dip is lower in phosphorus and higher in protein than many comparable recipes.
  • Pair with low-sodium crackers, raw veggies, sliced apples or low-salt tortilla.

Quick ‘n’ Easy Cheese Dip
Rhammer86 says:

I made this dip over the holidays, it was really good (especially if you like blue cheese). The texture was thick right out of the fridge (like a dip), but over time it thinned out and became soupy. It would make a great blue cheese salad dressing.

LOVED this dip. I have served it hot and cold (keeps well in a crock pot). Is great with wings, raw veggies, cold roasted veggies or low salt crackers/tortilla chips. I would make it again
