Jarlsberg Dip like Krogers

So the last few times I have been to my cheese counter at my local Kroger store, they have had this fabulous Jarlsberg Dip there, and I have purchased it several times. Then I started to think, I am the CopyKat lady, why am I not recreating this recipe for CopyKat? So here it goes, this is a wonderful dip that goes perfectly on Crackers. I have served this a few times now, and it has gotten rave reviews. So here is my Jarlsberg Dip like Krogers, now what I really like about this dip Jarlsberg cheese is a brand of Swiss cheese Norwegian cheese that is wonderfully rich and tasty, so you can add a little sophstication to a gathering. Jarlsberg cheese is related to Ementaler and other types of Swiss Cheese. This recipe is also one of my favorite types because you can make it ahead of time, and enjoy it later.

Kroger Jarlsberg Dip Recipe

Jarlsberg Dip like Krogers

I love cheese dips/spreads, I often try to keep one on hand just in case I have company or even if I want a light dinner. This cheese spread is perfect for this, and better yet, you don’t have to worry about having a lot of preservatives in the dip. If you are a beginner cook this would be an easy dish for you to make.

    Keeps in the fridge for about a week?? I must be doing something really wrong… mine doesn’t make it past two days in my fridge!! 😉

    • stephaniemanley

      Great point, this stuff is quite good.

  • IrishQueenB

    spread on baguette slices, top with bacon bits and bake @ 350F for 15 minutes…YUMMO!

    • stephaniemanley

      That sounds delicious! Great Suggestion.

    Thank you Stephanie! I was wondering if you’ve ever tried to CopyKat Kroger’s sour cream French Onion Dip? Looks like you have a Kroger in your town, but alas, I moved to Chicago where there is no such thing. The dip was a staple at events in my childhood home. I actually ‘import’ it when I got for a visit. Thank goodness for insulated lunch kits! Now I have friends bring it to me when they visit, but it would be grand if there was a CopyKat recipe. Thank you!

      Midmodtom: oooh, i would also like a recipe for this, as it is definitely my very favorite chip dip!!
      Stephanie Manley: well, how about it? will you take a crack at it?? 😎

      • stephaniemanley

        Which recipe do you want me to take a crack at? :)

        • Midmodtom

          The Kroger grocery store chain has their own brand of “Sour Cream French Onion Dip”. I would love it if you and your magic touch could recreate it!

    A friend of mine recently brought Kroger Southwest Jalapeno Jarlsberg Cheese Dip to a party. I have been to 6 Krogers in the area and they only have the regular Jarlsberg Cheese Dip. Does anybody know the recipe for the Southwest Jalapeno version?

  • Gmapearls

    Thank you! I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time. You saved me the experiment. To keep the cost even less than the deli, check out your local warehouse grocer. We buy our Jarlsburg cheese at Sam’s Club. Price is $4.67 per pound, vs $10 or more per pound at the supermarket. You do have to buy at least a two-pound chunk, but it keeps for a long time. God bless you and your family.

    • stephaniemanley

      I am glad to help give you more options.

    First I toast slices of bread in the oven (I usually use french or italian), then spread the dip on the toast and return it to the oven until cheese is melted. IT IS WONDERFUL!

    • stephaniemanley

      I love this melted too.

  • sheryl

    Fabulous dip! We had it at our son and daughter-in-law’s in Houston. Brought some home the last t8ime we visited and tried to break down the ingredients. You’re right on with it’s contents.

    • stephaniemanley

      I actually know I am right. I spoke with someone in the know 😉

    I found the dip to be overpriced at Giant Eagle but loved it so I asked one day how it was made and they told me. Their recipe has green onions and red onions, shredded jarlsberg and mayonaise. I make it alot for its quick fix but get great reviews!
    Never tried it warm though! Thanks for sharing!

  • Idonthaveone

    you got me totally addiceted to this wonderful dip i abbsolutly love it

  • Kittrina

    Really like this dip, thanks for sharing on how to make it.

  • AprilFool

    I love this dip. The ingredient label says there is lemon juice in it. I added just about a teaspoon of fresh juice.

  • Val Troll

    I had this cheese spread in Pittsburgh PA, the server at the deli said to go home and put it into tortilla scoops and place under broiler until hot, they were amazing!

    this may sound weird, but as a college student I try to eat cheap. I bought shrimp and chicken ramen noodles (the packs, not the cups). I cooked the noodles like normal on the stove, added a tablespoon of butter, added 2 – 3 tablespoons jarlsberg cheese dip (as you’ve shown to make), stir together. add shrimp and chicken seasoning packets. It’ll feed 1 hungry student or 2 students. It’s so yummy!! Now I can make big batches of this stuff and use it for everything!

    I used to work at Kroger’s and made this dip, but I couldn’t remember the proportions. Thanks for sharing your recipe. It tastes just like Kroger’s at a fraction of the cost!

    Thank you for writing this! I go to the Gerbes store in Columbia, MO where they have this dip at their cheese counter. (Gerbes is part of the Kroger chain.) I love this and have thought of trying to copy it myself. I decided to Google it first to see what I could find. Thanks!!

    • stephaniemanley

      I hope you enjoyed this recipe.

    I make something similar to this but call it onion soufflé. I make this with cream cheese, fresh parm, onions, mayo and bake it until bubbly. With my leftovers I put in scrambled eggs, on bakers, etc.

  • Victoria Surber

    I absolutely love this dip! I also vary it with putting in poppy seeds. It makes a great dip for unexpected company because it is quick to make!

  • Ann

    We, in Louisiana, make this dip but call it Onion Pie and we bake it & serve it hot with crackers!

    • Stephanie

      Oooo that sounds so delicious! I have always thought this should be served warm!

  • Dave R

    Forgot a crucial ingredient, 1/4 TSP garlic powder

  • Andrea

    I love to spread some of this dip on a slice of baguette and toast it in the toaster oven. The cheese gets all melty and yumm…

    • Stephanie

      Oh, yes, that sounds really tasty!

    Would be so yummy but SO expensive. I love Jarlsburg but only limit myself to a very small chunk because it is so expensive. any thoughts on any other, cheaper cheese that tastes similar? This makes me hungry just talking about it, glad you could replicate it!

    There is a domestic brand called Alpine cheese that may work well for you. ~Stephanie
