Jarlsberg Dip like Krogers

 So the last few times I have been to the cheese counter at my local Kroger store, they have had this fabulous Jarlsberg Dip there. I have purchased it several times. Then I started to think, I am the CopyKat lady, why am I not recreating this recipe for CopyKat?

Homemade Kroger Jarlsberg cheese dip and crackers.

This Cheese Dip is Wonderful

So, here is my copycat Kroger Jarlsberg Cheese Dip recipe. This is a very tasty dip that goes perfectly on crackers. I have served this a few times now, and it has gotten rave reviews.

Jarlsberg cheese is a Norwegian cheese that is wonderfully rich and tasty. It’s related to Emmentaler and other types of Swiss cheese. In fact, you can choose to use Swiss cheese for this dip instead of Jarlsberg.

Whichever cheese you opt for, this dip adds a little bit of sophistication to a gathering. This recipe is also one of my favorite types because you can make it ahead of time and enjoy it later.

The Holey Cheese

Jarlsberg is Norway’s third-largest export. It is valued by leading chefs for its distinctive sweet and nutty taste – not to mention its distinctive holes. It’s an ideal cheese for cheese boards and tastes good in salads and a variety of hot dishes.

Jarlsberg was developed in 1956 in Jarlsberg county by successfully combining old cheese-making traditions with modern technologies.

Jarlsberg Cheese Has a Nutty Taste

Peel back the wax rind on a piece of Jarlsberg, and you discover a semi-firm buttery yellow interior that has a delightfully mild, nutty flavor. A nutty Jarlsberg and a smooth Merlot are a wonderful pairing.
