Jarlsberg Dip Slider Bites
1 French baguette
1 8-ounce container Jarlsberg Original Cheese Dip
Grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced thin
Cut baguette into 1/4”-thick slices. Spread each slice with a generous layer of Jarlsberg dip. Place tomatoes on half of the bread slices and top those halves with “no tomato” slices (spread side down), to finish sandwich. Heat a grill pan on medium low. Lightly brush top of sandwiches with butter and place them on hot grill, butter side down; brush tops with butter. Grill 3 minutes, until golden brown and dip is melted, before carefully flipping to grill the other side (3 minutes), before removing from pan. Serve warm and enjoy.
Some Tasteful Variations
• For a meatier “bite,” replace tomatoes with sliced ham or crispy bacon bits.
• For an earthier flavor note, use truffle oil instead of melted butter.
• Replace tomatoes with a teaspoon of apricot preserves, a sweet complement to the tang and creaminess of the cheese.
• Try these slider bites with different breads—sourdough, rye, pumpernickel or whole grain.
Known for its unique, mellow-nutty flavor, shredded Jarlsberg is the main ingredient in the new dip made with mayo and red onion. You may care to keep a cup on hand for quick and easy entertaining, picnics, tailgating and anytime you get together with friends. It also tastes great melted on a hamburger, steak or baked potatoes or stuffed into jalapeños, mushrooms or chicken breasts. It’s now available in supermarkets.
