Male, female, old, young…everyone loves cheese. On pizza, with macaroni, and of course, as a dip. There’s just something so great about an ooey, gooey, creamy bowl of cheese with warm chips or bread plated beside it.

BelGioioso Cheese offers these 4 traditional cheeses that are going to take your appetizer menu to the next level of awesome.

Ricotta

Dairy - Cheese Ricotta

Basic ingredients, like olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, and minced garlic turn ricotta into a delectable dip.
This is very light and creamy and can go with a variety of fresh breads. See details here!

Fontina

Dairy - Cheese Fontina

Use chunks of fontina, EVOO, thyme leaves, rosemary leaves, and spices, melt in your skillet, and serve with a crust French baguette for dipping.

Mascarpone

Dairy - Cheese Mascarpone

Although Mascarpone can be used in savory dishes, it is known for sweet dishes, like tiramisu and cannolis!

Who says dip can’t be dessert? This tiramisu dip turns a classic dessert into something the whole group can share after a meal. Top with cinnamon and lay out Roland® lady finger cookies or graham crackers for dipping. Click here for all info.

Mozzarella

Dairy - Cheese Fresh Mozz

Tastes just like pizza, but it’s a dip! This one is easy: marinara sauce, baby spinach, olive oil, and your BelGioioso mozzarella. Fresh basil would work nicely on top too. A crunch sliced baguette is ideal for this one to handle the thick, stringy mozzarella. Click for more.
