Grapes and Walnuts bring this Baked Cheese Dip to a new level of flavor

This Grape and Walnut Baked Provolone Cheese Dip recipe wouldn’t be complete without the Walnuts baked right into the cheese, and sprinkled on top. Talk about DELICIOUS! I’m so excited to be partnering with California Walnuts this year, and this favorite pretty holiday appetizer is my 2nd of 6 recipes for the year.

Did you know just 1 ounce of walnuts is packed with 4 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and 2.5 grams of plant based omega alpha-linolenic acid (Walnuts are the only nut that contain significant amounts of this beneficial nutrient!)

I love their rich flavor and versatility. You can grind walnuts to use as a flour in baking, toss into a Waldorf Salad, or as an add in to starters like this baked cheese. So much love to go around.

Love it! I want it all!
I never thought of using provolone for baked cheese. I've done baked brie and camembert before, but never provolone. I'm DEFINITELY going to have to try this. I like the use of the grapes too - walnuts are not really my thing, but I'll bet pecans would be good!
