entertaining: baked goat cheese & pepper dip

Rate This Recipe

A restaurant in my home town serves an appetizer like this and it’s been a favorite of mine for years. If I go to The Little Village, I have to get this dip.  It combines many of my favorite things – roasted red peppers and garlic, hot goat cheese and crusty french bread. In fact, it’s so charming, if I had only those 4 ingredients I’m sure I could be content forever.

Not that I’d want to find out or anything…

Baked Goat Cheese & Pepper Dip – 2-4 servings

  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 6 cloves roasted garlic *depending on preference

    I was expecting Pho based on your tweets! I need a good Pho recipe for the BF. This, however, is a pleasant surprise. I love goat cheese. I think I could live off of it. So tart and creamy. I’m sending this to my sister for her housewarming. It looks delicious.

    Love it! I saw something similar to this on Food for Thought many moons ago and have had it bookmarked forever. Love how simple this is. Have a fantastic weekend (despite the grey!)
