Fresh sage, sweet caramelized onions, and creamy gruyere cheese make this cheese dip an all-around crowd pleaser!
I was recently asked if I was going to a party, what dish would I bring. My favorite party dishes are hot, melty cheese dips. Dips like this Hot Bruschetta Dip or this Chipotle Black Bean Dip are my go-to party faves. There is something that is so irresistible about hot, gooey, melted cheese. I think it’s a combination of warmth and comfort that keeps everyone going back for more.
While I love these hot dips, I don’t want to be a “one trick pony”. I like to change things up, you know, surprise everyone. This cheese dip I’m sharing with you is an excellent alternative to the typical hot cheese appetizer. It certainly has it’s fair share of cheese between the cream cheese and the gruyere (let’s face it, everything is better with cheese), but it also has tender and sweet caramelized onions and fresh sage.
The sage adds an unexpected bite to this cheese dip while the cream cheese and the nutty GFruyere keep it creamy and rich. The caramelized onions add just a hint of sweetness. This simple cheese dip found a perfect partner in these Harvest Pumpkin Tortilla Chips. These crunchy pumpkin chips are dusted with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon that compliment this dip in the most natural way.
I love Food Should Taste Good tortilla chips because they are Gluten Free, Non-GMO and Certified kosher. But I love them even more for their taste and when coupled with this cheese dip, they make a complete fall-flavored snack.
