We love cream, but don’t often keep it in the house. So when we do, let’s just say we go a little crazy. This is a decadent dip that would also be greated stuffed in cherry tomatoes, spread on crusty bread or just inhaled when your spouse steps out of the kitchen.

Goat Cheese and Pesto Dipping Sauce

  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 1 tbsp sweet pepper jam
  • salt/pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a small ovenproof dish. Bake in oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Serve warm.

    I’d been holding this recipe to try, and when my husband brought home some home grown tomatoes from my father in law, I knew it was time. I stuffed the tomatoes with half of the batch (having made it with wild garlic pesto) and roasted them in the oven.

    They were delicious! They kind of fell apart once cooked, so I mushed the filled tomatoes onto slices of bread. I may have found a new starter for Christmas!

  11. We don’t keep cream in the house often, either… Pesto and goat cheese though, MMMM. It’s like an inside out panini. 🙂
