"I thought this was okay. I have never made a hot ham dip before, so I really have nothing to compare it to. It kind of just tasted like store bought ham salad, warmed, with some pieces of swiss cheese bits. I found the mayo taste and salt to be a bit heavy. I only tested 1/2 recipe to try it. Since, I think it is sort of too salty I might not use it on a cracker, but I might try it on a roll later after it cools down."

"I made a slightly adapted version of this (had to use the ingredients we had on hand) and received lots of praise for this simple yet tasty dish.

I used 3 types of cheddar and served it with crackers."
