Dubliner Cheese Dip. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve been asked for this recipe. A delicious cheese spread recipe made even creamier with cream cheese and mayo.
It seems that when it comes to dips, cheese is king. Awesome, easy to make and crowd pleasing, don’t forget to make one this one this Holiday Season. Here’s the story behind my latest find, Dubliner Cheese Dip.
The last Sur la Table cooking class I attended was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and we made pies. Great class because they gave us two Sur la Table pie plates full of holiday pies for a take and bake treat for our Thanksgiving meal. Very cool!
Photos are of my client Caroline Glidden, Realtor and coworker, Stacie. An apple and cranberry lattice pie (omg). And my boss Connie and Caroline. Great class and we ended up happy little flaky crust bakers.
Usually our class is about a main course meal item which ends up on a plate for lunch. Even though we got small bite pies to keep us from starving, one of the Chef’s assistants made us this bowl of cheese dip and crackers. One by one as we tasted the dip, every single one of us asked for the recipe. I even threatened not to leave until I got it.
This is similar to a Smoky pimento cheese dip but even better. And the secret to its goodness is this Kerrygold Dubliner cheese! I don’t think I’ve ever purchased it. Even though I’m feeling a loss over that, I’m dancing a jig over the find. Good stuff, complex, worldly, slightly sweet, slightly nutty and robust, this stuff is fabulous. It’s a granular cheese in texture so you want to keep in the fridge until you’re ready to grate, so it doesn’t chunk and fall apart.
I took this dip to Greg and Cauleen’s house for the Bronco Game and Sunday Gravy Dinner. They asked for the recipe. Served with Original Wheat Thin crackers seemed perfect.
A side note, I loved Cauleen’s display of little balls of mozarella, pepperoni, basil and grape tomato appetizer. Perfect for that round bowl and our Italian feast.

I also took this dip to our ugly Christmas sweater party and all eight of our friends in attendance asked for the recipe.
Grated cheese, roasted red pepper, minced shallot, cream cheese and some mayo and it’s a winner.
