Course Appetizer


  • 12 oz goat cheese
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup parmesan shredded
  • 2 tbsp olive oil top with more after baking, if desired
  • 4-6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1-2 tsp red pepper flakes adjust according to how spicy you want this dip to be
  • 2 tsp rosemary finely chopped, plus more for garnish if you'd like
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
    Combine the goat cheese and all other ingredients (either by hand or with a food processor) until everything is well-incorporated, and transfer to an oven-safe dish.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes. The top will start to brown slightly & get nice and bubbly. (I bake mine for 18 minutes every time)
  • Top with a bit more rosemary and/or olive oil, if desired.
    Serve hot with crackers, chips, pretzels, vegetables, bread, or anything else you can use for dipping!


If you don't want a spicy appetizer, you can totally omit the red pepper flakes. But if you're okay with a little kick, I highly recommend you try it! 
If you want to prepare this dip ahead of time, mix all of the ingredients and put them in your baking dish. Cover tightly and refrigerate. I recommend letting it come to room temperature before baking it when you're ready. 
You can also microwave leftovers and it still tastes great.
