Total Time
This melty cheese dip is the ultimate crowdpleaser. The mild, nutty flavor of our Grand Cru® cheese makes for an ooey gooey dip that's topped with sautéed apples and pecans subtlely sweetened with maple syrup.

Recipe by: Casey, The Mindful Hapa


  • 2 (6-oz) wedges Roth Grand Cru® cheese, shredded (approximately 2 cups shredded)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup diced apples (pick your favorite variety)
  • 1/3 cup raw pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup


  1. Sauté olive oil, apples, pecans and maple syrup in a small frypan until sizzling.  Set aside.  
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine grated cheese and cornstarch until cheese is well coated.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring water and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add cheese mixture while stirring constantly with a fork.  Continue to stir until all cheese is melted.  The mixture should be bubbly and smooth.  
  4. Pour cheese mixture into a mini individual cast iron skillet and broil until the top is browned, about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and top with apple/pecan mixture.  Broil again until apple mixture starts to sizzle. Remove and serve immediately with your choice of crackers, chips, or bread.
