Here's a quick, go-to recipe for a hot cheese dip that's a delicious appetizer your guests will devour!

As with most of my favorite recipes, there’s a story that comes with it.

When I was getting married oh so many years ago, we had a couples shower, and one of the guests gave us a simple but lasting gift—a small, decorative baking dish with one of her favorite recipes in it for Hot Swiss Cheese Dip.

I must admit, I was a little skeptical of the recipe at first. But after trying it once, I was a complete convert. It really is SOOOO yummy!

And boy is this recipe easy to make and remember: 1 cup of chopped onions, 1 cup of shredded Swiss cheese, and 1 cup of mayonnaise. Yes—a cup, a cup, and a cup. Can you memorize that? Even my failing memory can make this dish without looking it up the recipe!

Now I must admit that I sometimes used to make this recipe with mayonnaise made from highly processed ingredients like soybean oil. However, these days I usually make my mayonnaise from scratch. Thankfully, though, there are several great store-bought mayo options made from real ingredients so scratch mayo isn’t necessary (check out Primal Mayo or Chosen Mayo).

And if you’re not a fan of mayo, try the vegetarian option in the recipe notes that substitutes Whole Milk Greek Yogurt. While it’s not quite as good, it’s still pretty fantastic!

Notes

We recommend organic ingredients whenever possible.
I think sweet onions work best with this recipe, although I've used yellow onions in a pinch.
Definitely try to use a higher quality mayonnaise made from real ingredients like Chosen Foods or Primal Kitchen Mayo.
If you don't like mayonnaise or prefer a vegetarian option, try using 1 cup of Whole Milk Greek yogurt plus 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar instead of the mayonnaise.
