Grandma Katie’s Three Cheese Dip

From the kitchen of: Katie Mineart.

My grandmother makes this extraordinary dip every year for family gatherings, and we love it. It makes a huge amount of dip, though; about three times what one would typical expect to serve at a party. (That’s about right for my big Catholic family, but it might be too much for your party.) So halve the recipe, or freeze some.

  • 1/2 lb. of grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 lb. of grated swiss cheese
  • 1/2 lb. of Velveeta cheese
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Ascent or Lowry’s seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion or onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Grate Velveeta cheese and mix with other grated cheeses, mayonnaise, sugar and spices. Chill before serving. Keeps well, freezes well.
