Description

Our deliciously creamy baked goat cheese dip is topped with fresh tomatoes, garlic and basil and served with crusty, garlicky crostini!

Ingredients

baked goat cheese dip

  • goat cheese 8 oz (220 g)
  • cream cheese 4 oz (110 g)
  • grated parmesan ⅓ c (30 g)
  • oregano ½ tsp
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • salt to taste

tomato basil topping

  • cherry tomatoes, chopped 1 c (200 g)
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • basil 4 leaves
  • olive oil 1 tbsp
  • oregano ¼ tsp
  • salt to taste

crostini

  • french bread 1 loaf
  • garlic 1 clove

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together all ingredients for the baked goat cheese until creamy and smooth. Place in a small baking dish* and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and the edges are beginning to brown.
  3. Make the tomato topping. Mince two cloves of garlic and tear the basil into small pieces. Place the chopped tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, oregano and salt in a small bowl and mix well.
  4. Slice the bread and slightly smash the last clove of garlic. Heat up a skillet over medium heat and toast each slice of bread (about 1-2 minutes on each side). Rub each slice of toasted bread with the garlic.
  5. When the goat cheese is cooked, top with the tomato mixture and serve with crostini.

Notes

Baking dish size: I used a 6-inch (15 cm) cast iron skillet to make this dip, but any small oven-safe dish will work well.

Storing: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.
