Ingredients

For the baked goat cheese dip:

  • 10 ounce log of goat cheese
  • 6 tablespoons cream cheese
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 small garlic clove very finely minced
  • A pinch of sea salt

For the topping:

  • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced red onion
  • 1 small handful of basil leaves gently chopped
  • 1 teaspoon each: olive oil and balsamic vinegar
  • A pinch of sea salt

To serve:

  • Toasted baguette slices bonus points if you toast them with a little cheddar cheese on top, olive oil and reduced balsamic to drizzle

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a small baking dish, pie pan, or cast iron skillet with olive oil.
  • Add all of the goat cheese dip ingredients to your food processor and process on high until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Scoop the whipped goat cheese into the prepared baking dish and smooth out the top. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until it is hot and bubbly.
  • While the goat cheese dip is baking, prepare the topping by mixing together all the topping ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Take the goat cheese dip out of the oven and, using a spoon, create a small well in the center. Pour the tomato topping into this well and drizzle with a little reduced balsamic and olive oil.
  • Serve with toasted baguette slices, cheese bread, or crackers.
