Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Then follow our 3 simple steps:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix cheese, softened cream cheese, mayo and 1/3 cup add-ins in 9-inch pie plate or ovenproof 3-cup serving dish until well blended.
  • Bake 15 min., stirring after 8 min.
  • Top with 2 Tbsp. toasted nuts. Serve warm with assorted crackers, cocktail bread slices or cut-up fresh vegetables.

Make it Easy

Have platters of prepared dippers (cut-up vegetables, assorted crackers and cocktail bread slices) on hand in the kitchen, covered with plastic wrap, so you can easily replace them when they run low. Cover prepared vegetables with a damp paper towel to keep moist and fresh until ready to serve.

How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts not only gives them a pleasing golden color but also intensifies their flavor and adds crunch. To easily toast nuts, spread them in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.

    My friends at the office Christmas party loved the "Swiss cheese" version and asked for a copy. Now they all know how easy it is, and how little time I spent making it.

    Answer to "a cook"'s question: they do indeed list ingredients -- they provide 4 options each for cheeses, add-ins and nuts in the table displayed in the recipe!
