"People have been known to stand in front of the oven at parties waiting for me to take this dip out! I get asked for the recipe every time I make it. So easy and soooo yummy! The distinctive flavor of Swiss cheese is blended with sweet onions." — ADODD

chopped sweet onions
shredded Swiss cheese
I'm good friends with the the submitter of the recipe and the site gave the wrong proportions,much to her alarm. You make this with 2 cups mayo, 2 cups shredded swiss cheese and 2 cups vidalia or any sweet onion (NOT all those onions it says to use!!!)No wonder some people thought it was nasty. It's to die for when it's made correctly! I hope those people who had bad experiences will try it again.
GREASY, GREASY, GREASY! I was very embarrased last night when this came out of the oven in front of all of my guests. Everyone kept asking how much butter I put into the dip. This dip was nothing but a huge puddle of grease. The ingredients seperated and it was just a mess. Needless to say, I had TONS left because no one really wanted to eat a big pile of greasy mess.
We could not stop eating this dip! Next time I will put it into a crock pot to keep warm throughout the party.
I substituted 8oz (1 brick) of cream cheese for half the mayo and used both parmesan (FRESHLY GRATED - not powdered ) and swiss cheeses. The parmesan added a nice kick of flavor and I think that all swiss would have been too bland.
Be sure to chop the onions medium-fine or it takes a lot longer for the onions to cook.
I got a variation of this recipe from my good friend Karen and I love it! She uses:
2 c mayo,
2 c shredded swiss,
1 8 oz can choped water chestnuts,
1/4 c dry white wine,
1 minced garlic glove,
1/2 tsp hot sauce.
It is a fabulous recipe. There is always a crowd hovering over this dip at parties.
A friend of mine calls this recipe "Cuppa, Cuppa, Cuppa" as in "a cup of Vidalia onions, a cup of mayonnaise, a cup of swiss cheese." (Or in this recipe's case, two cups of each!) I made this last night for Monday Night Football and it was a crowd favorite! Use a sturdy cracker for this dip - - regular tortilla chips just snapped when you scooped. Can't wait to try the leftover reheated tonight!
I've been making this a party staple ever since snagging the recipe from a friend years ago. This is THE BEST and it's so easy. The rater who said "cuppa, cuppa, cuppa" made me laugh, because that's how I remember the recipe when I asked. Equal parts swiss, mayo, and sweet onions. I use light mayo and it's still yummy. Great w/crusty french bread.
Love this dip, use low fat Hellman's mayo instead of full fat and it won't be so greasy.
This was quick and easy to make. I ate this warm. I thought the 2 cups of mayo was going to be too much so I added more like 1.5 cups and it was great. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe.
