4th of July Appetizer
How are you going to celebrate the 4th of July? I’m super excited to celebrate with good friends and delicious foods. Here is my new favorite cheese dip recipe that is perfect for Independence Day Entertaining! Make it ahead of time (I recommend a double batch – it’s popular!) and warm it up for the 4th.
As you might have seen, I’ve been working with Cracker Barrel Cheese so I used the Vermont White Cheddar in this dip recipe. It is fantastic! I love the sharp flavor and it pairs so well with sweet vidalia onions.
I shredded the Vermont White Cheddar Cheese for the dip! You can easily tell it’s an award-winning cheese from its full flavor and cream texture. This dip is focused on the cheese so you really want to use a high quality cheese like Cracker Barrel.
It’s perfect for melting in a dip. I also love it on grilled cheese or shredded over grilled veggies. We’ve been enjoying a lot of grilling this summer and this cheese finds its way into almost every meal. It’s a must try!
To keep things festive, I paired the dip with blue corn tortilla chips, red pepper strips, and cute star-shaped tortilla chips that I made myself. Simply take flour tortillas and a star cutter and go to town! Bake at 350 for a few minutes (not long, watch as they start to golden). Then remove and you’re ready!
I think this is a clever way to get in that “red,white, and blue” and they all pair perfectly with the white cheddar & vidalia onion dip! It makes the perfect 4th of July appetizer recipe!
