What is the best part about hosting a party? Get to come up with the appetizers!! You can pick Baked Mexican Cheese Dip if you are hosting a football party. Or if you want to get a little more fancy.
These Roasted Olives work for a holiday get together. My husband loves a good goat cheese appetizer, so I am always trying to come up with new goat cheese recipes for him. And this Goat cheese dip is a huge favorite of his. He will pretty much eat it in any form.
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! I have also tried variations of this warm goat cheese dip with caramelized onions and fresh thyme that was delicious. So many ways to mix it up to suit what your are looking for. IT is such an easy goat cheese dip recipe you can make it in minutes!
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! So if you are searching for more goat cheese recipes like I am, you have to try this dip! You will not be disappointed.
How to Make Goat Cheese Dip
- Start with a log of goat cheese. You want to get the original not one with herbs or anything mixed in already
- Add the Parmesan cheese and spices and mix together until creamy.
- Spread into a small baking dish and bake until hot and bubbly
- Serve with crackers, crusty bread, pita chips or even veggies!
One question that comes up a lot is; Is Feta Goat Cheese. First of all, feta is not a substitute for this recipe. You really need to use real goat cheese. Feta is made from sheep’s milk and a mixture of sheep and goat milk. It has a crumbly grainy texture that is different than goat cheese. If you buy feta in the US, it is often times made with cows milk. So no, feta is not goat milk.
