I’m usually not one to make recipes off the sides of boxes and cans (besides the occasional batch of Chex Mix), but I was looking at the back of a Whole Foods cracker box the other day and found one that looked really good. I had all the ingredients already so I decided to make it as an appetizer for dinner last night. Here is the recipe from the box (slightly modified):
Warm Goat Cheese Dip
-1 tsp garlic, pressed
-1 package goat cheese
-2 sprigs fresh rosemary
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread garlic on the bottom of a 5×9 casserole dish (I used the all-clad oval baker). Crumble cheese over garlic. Place rosemary sprigs between cheese and side of dish, following the curve of the dish. Press cheese down with the back of a spoon. Top with the olive oil, salt, and pepper (to taste). Bake for 10 minutes, until bubbling.
They recommend serving it with the woven whole wheat crackers (the box it was printed on). I had some leftover pitas and had finished the crackers the night before, so I toasted the pitas up. This would be a great dish to serve or bring to a party as it can be made beforehand and only takes 10 minutes to heat up.
