I love a good dip recipe for this time of year. Everyone gets all caught up in the main dishes. The turkey or the holiday roast, the stuffing, the mashed potatoes.

All those things are delicious of course, but let’s not forget the appetizers!

If your guests are anything like mine, then they show up for the holiday meal having skipped breakfast and totally starving trying to hold out for the main course. That’s where this hot ham and Swiss dip comes in!

How to Make Hot Ham and Cheese Dip

Making this hot ham and Swiss dip is a snap. You just need a mixing bowl, baking dish, and some really basic ingredients that you might even have in your kitchen right now.

To make this scrumptious warm cheese dip, add 1 cup of your Swiss cheese, half of your cheddar cheese, your softened cream cheese, spices, mustard, and diced ham to a bowl. Then just mix everything so that it’s well combined.

To finish the prep you just need to transfer the cheesy mixture to an oven safe baking dish and top with the remaining cheese. Then you bake it at 350 until the cheese is hot and bubbly.

That’s it! Almost no fuss! 

What to Serve with Hot Ham and Swiss Dip

I like serving this dip with slices of baguette or sturdy crackers. But you could also put out other dippers so you have extra variety. It would also be delicious with:

  • pita bread
  • pretzels
  • tortilla chips
  • veggie sticks

The sky’s the limit.

Rich & creamy, this hot ham and Swiss dip is cozy comfort food on a cracker, or whatever you choose to dip in it. It’s a perfect appetizer, snack, or even a late night indulgent supper shared with someone special. Add a glass or two of wine, and it’s got date night dinner in written all over it!
