My mom used to make this with a processed cheddar spread, but I wanted to make it with a bit less salt, so changed it to grated cheddar. Everybody LOVES this dip. I have been making it for 20 years and it's still a requested item by family and fiends for parties!! You can adjust the salt content to your liking, but I find there is enough salt in the extra sharp cheese.
I will add picture he next time I make it also
