Melted Swiss Cheeses and Dried Tomato Dip


Melted Swiss Cheeses and Dried Tomato Dip Every place on earth is blessed with typical ingredients and/or dishes. In Switzerland, one thing I’m proud of having access to is our cheese. In such a small country, we have over 450 different types of cheese and this is enough to never get bored about this produce I personally love. One thing you’ll surely always find in my fridge is alpine cheese. For this recipe I wanted to honour this produce and so I adapted the recipe I found on closetcooking.com. Except for the cream cheese, all that is in this recipe comes from the country of Heidi. Sitting beside the fireplace and with a glass of white wine, my fiancé and I shared this melted cheese wonder. Talking about melted cheese, soon I will post a fondue recipe so stay tuned if you love melted cheese when it’s cold outside!

  1. A glass of wine and some flatbread for dipping into the melted cheese, this does sound like a lovely evening with your fiancé in front of the fire. If my husband and I have had a big lunch, this is the type of thing we enjoy having in the evening. 🙂

    • The fireplace is such a beautiful, heartwarming and sociable thing. You’re right Karen, for an easy dinner such recipe could work well; it’s not like a plate where you feel like you have to finish the whole thing. 🙂
