Goat Cheese Dip

I’ve got a goat cheese dip recipe that’s slightly spicy, chock-full-of-vegetables and so bright and colorful to share with you today!

The recipe inspiration for this goat cheese dip comes from a favorite restaurant back in Wisconsin Dells, called High Rock. Their Gilly Goat appetizer is SO good, and I have to get it every time I visit the restaurant. And all those times I can’t visit the restaurant? I make my own (simplified!) version at home. I love when I can go out to a restaurant, and then come home and make a simplified version of a delicious meal.

In this easy goat cheese dip, peppers are sauteed with garlic and olive oil (smells SO good!) and then spooned over a log of goat cheese and scooped up with freshly sliced baguette. Or elevate your cheese platter with goat cheese topped with this dip!

You’ll love the bright and fresh flavors.

    This is going to make a great appetizer for the holidays! So colorful too. I’m a huge fan of the kick, but I would have bet money on you using Sriracha until I read on. 🙂

    Love love love Gilly Goat! And High Rock! I lived within 10 miles of it for years and dined there weekly. So sad that I now live 1200 miles away, but I make my own version of Gilly at home and have for a long time. So glad that others have experienced its wonderfulness.
