Baked Goat Cheese Dip with Garlic and Herbs – melty, cheesy baked goat cheese dip with lots of garlic and herbs! Pair with a glass of wine and you have the perfect appetizer.
We had a busy last few days around here! Between getting together with 2 different groups of friends, a root canal, physical therapy appointments, trips to the pool, and golfing, it has been a little crazy. School starts in 2 weeks, and I have to say I am excited to get back into a routine! It will be a brand new routine this year, with my son starting middle school, but I am ready for it to be here.
Summer break has been full of travel and craziness, so a little calm is needed around here for everyone! And with routine comes a glass of wine on Friday night for me. The perfect way to end the week, in my opinion.
If you know me, or have hung out with me on a weekend, you know I like wine. It is usually my drink of choice. Assuming I am not out with the girls enjoying chips, guacamole, and margaritas. So I am always looking for new wines to try.
Recently I had the opportunity to try Maison Louis Jadot Wines, which is the #1 selling French wine in the US. The French are known for their wines, so I was very excited to try it. Having a chilled glass of Chardonnay, while enjoying appetizers on the patio is the perfect summer evening. So I made this Baked Goat Cheese Dip with Garlic and Herbs, so we could do just that!
The creamy, cheesy dip, with fresh rosemary paired perfectly with both the Beaujolais and the Chardonnay Jadot wine. We did have a little leftover white wine, so I made used it to make Steamed Mussels for my husband the next night. Or make a Red Wine Spritzer with their famous beaujolais!
The baked goat cheese dip is very easy to make, and you can even make it ahead of time. I mixed all of the ingredients together in a bowl early in the day, and then just baked it when we were ready to eat. I am pretty sure you could even put it in a small crock pot if you were making it for a party. Just make sure you bring plenty of wine to the party as well!
