Jarlsberg surplus

Hi all,
I bought a huge hunk of Jarlsberg because it was on sale, but now I have more than I know what to do with! Ideas (other than just eating it all with abandon)?

  1. If you enjoy fondue and have some pals to share with I'd host a fondue party. Nice problem to have, amm18!

    1. Any type of melt sandwich, egg dishes, gratins

      1. Quiche. Sandwiches. Veggie pizza. Potato dishes. Omelettes. OOh ooh how about a vidalia, thyme, puff pastry, and jarlsberg tart?

        1. jarlsberg croutons/fricos

          on a burger with caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms

          1. Throw it in a spinach omelette.

            Melt it over some french onion soup.

            Shred it and mix it with some mayo and sour cream as the base for a baked cheese dip.

            A local pizza shop near me mixes swiss in with their shredded mozarella - adds a nice touch

              Do you have a favorite recipe for the baked cheese dip? A lot of variations on the web...

                The food blog Closet Cooking has really easy and very delicious hot dip recipes throughout it. Many that include cheese so I'd recommend visiting here:
