“This recipe came in an e-mail newsletter I get and I couldn't believe it. My mom used to make it for just about every party she ever had. So this is a 70's recipe. I don't know that there is such a thing as a 14.5oz can of shrimp, but I am leaving this recipe true to my memory. I have no idea why it is called Fireside, but I am going with it. As the newsleter said "It's a perfect idea when you are having people over who are not real open to new-fangled ideas on food. It's straight-forward and wonderful."”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Hand grate the cheese. Use a medium-sized grate so you have some nice-sized shreds.
  2. Dice onion, whatever size you like.
  3. Rinse and drain shrimp. (can also use frozen cooked shrimp diced up about 1/2lb, I do).
  4. Add the shrimp and onion to the cheese along with the mayonnaise and the Worcestershire sauce. Stir until blended.
  5. Find a decorative bowl to serve this in as it's pretty plain looking otherwise.
  6. Set out a spreader or spoon so guests can mound the dip on a cracker.
