Baked Humble Heart Farms Goat Cheese Dip

An easy 25 Minute Recipe that will serve 6 (or 4 hungry Alabama fans)

Ingredients

3 (4-ounce) containers of Humble Heart Farms goat cheese, at room temperature

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Freshly ground pepper
8 small cocktail tomatoes (about 10 ounces), quartered
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Kosher salt
Toasted baguette slices, for serving

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the Humble Heart Farms goat cheese, cream cheese, parmesan and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a food processor and season with pepper; puree until smooth. Brush a 1-quart baking dish with olive oil, then spread the cheese mixture in the dish, mounding it slightly higher around the edge than in the middle. Bake until golden and heated through, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, chives, vinegar, garlic, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and ½ taspoon salt in a medium bowl. Spoon the tomato mixture on top of the dip. Serve with baguette slices.
