Ham and Swiss Dip

I have been making this scrumptious dip for 25 years, and I can't think of a time where there haven't been multiple requests for the recipe. It's wonderful for the holiday celebrations, sports parties and even brunch buffets. -Laurie LaClair North Richland Hills, Texas

    I did not like this recipe at all. I think it needs more seasoning to spice it up a bit. It was quite bland and heavy. Not a favorite of mine.

    I like to take this hearty dip to parties around the Christmas Holidays. It is a very rich, heavy dip so I don't think it would work as well in summertime when one prefers food to be lighter but a great fall winter dip. There is never leftovers and I give out the recipe a lot. Thanks for sharing it.
