My husband makes this delectable goat cheese spread for every special occasion. With only four ingredients, the dish is simple and oh so flavorful with sweet and savory sun-dried tomatoes, tangy goat cheese and fresh basil.
Goat Cheese, 8 ounces
1 head of Garlic, top trimmed
5 T Basil, chopped
6 oil packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped
Note: We are typically heavy handed with herbs and tomatoes—the more the better! Adjust ingredients according to your taste preference.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Place garlic on aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil, seal foil and bake one hour. (Quick tip: To save time, use minced garlic and sauté in a skillet…)
When cooled enough to handle, squeeze garlic bulbs into a bowl with sun-dried tomatoes, basil and cheese. Blend well.
Form into a ball or log. Chill in the refrigerator several hours before serving.
Spread over crackers, serve with baguette slices or as a dip with sturdy chips. (Sturdy because the spread is thick…)
Happy New Year!
