Versatile, fit for any occasion, and often nostalgically craved, cheese dips are the perfect potluck presentation. We love them because they can be served hot or cold, with chips or crackers, and really showcase the flavors of Wisconsin Cheese. Looking for some new cheese dip recipes? Here are some of our favorites, along with some handy tips for dips that please a crowd.
1. Try serving a cheese dip in individual cups. Easier for guests to grab and eat, cups are a fun way to personalize a party. We love this Wisconsin Blue Cheese & Bacon Dip by Deborah of Taste and Tell.
2. A slow cooker is perfect for keeping a hot dip warm throughout the length of a party. Slower Cooker Reuben Dip with Wisconsin Cheddar and Swiss Cheeses, by Dude Foods, is a delicious example of this trick.
3. Many cheese dips can be made well in advance of serving, and they often taste even better after the abundance of flavors in a recipe have a chance to mix together. Katie of The Parsley Thief shares a recipe for Wisconsin Cheddar & Guinness Dip that can be made the day before your summer celebration – but be sure to make lots, because it’s bound to go fast!
4. The more cheese the better, right? Mix up your favorite cheeses and veggies for a delicious cheese dip creation, and don’t be afraid to play around with different types of cheese. Kristin of Iowa Girl Eats adapted this Wisconsin Cheese Fiesta Dip recipe to include a favorite classic cheese, Wisconsin Cheddar.
