Delicious! Three onions, two cheeses and an almond in a nut tree ...that was cheesy, but so is this spread! Serve with buttered round crackers if desired.

I made this for a baby shower and it was a Hit! It is so easy and can be made the night before and then heated when needed. For a party make a double batch. Great with crackers or toasted baquette slices. The recipe references 3 green onions but doesn't say whether to sprinkle on top or incorporate into the dip. I stirred them into the dip and they added color and flavor. Read More

If you heat too long the cheese gets very stringy and the oil separates. Read More

This spread was a hit at the holiday gathering. It stayed fairly creamy even as it cooled and did not separate. I thought my swiss cheese was not very flavorful so I added a dash of seasoned salt. Also added more almonds. I can also envision adding dried cranberries. Very good will make again! Read More

I have made this for a number of parties in the last few months and it has been a BIG hit. I have been asked to make it again but this time to double the recipe. The only thing I changed was that I added a dash of salt. Fabulous!! Read More

This recipe had a lovely flavor... but it was so thick and gloppy it could hardly be removed from the bowl... and spreading on crackers was not easy. If I make this again I will spread it on toasted baguette slices while it is still hot. Read More

I had this at a party recently and it was delicious - the person who made it omitted the onions and topped it with crushed bacon. Read More
