Saw this recipe on The Nate Berkus Show, during a segment with chef Michael Chiarello. This dip is easy to make, and handy to have around. Great for parties, since you can make it ahead of time.

How to Make Parmesan Cheese Dip


  • 1Remove any rind from the cheeses. Chop cheeses into 1-inch chunks. Place in food processor, and pulse until the cheeses are reduced to size of fine pea gravel.
  • 2Transfer cheeses into a bowl and stir in green onion and garlic. Add oregano, rubbing between your fingers to release its fragrance. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
  • 3Cover and let stand at room temperature for at least 4 hours before serving. Serve with crackers, or use as a spread on fresh-baked bread. Or use to top grilled chicken breasts.

    Makes 3 1/2 cups, about 16 servings.
