Baked Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Dip

Baked cheese – sign us up! Alli made this dish for her neighbors and everyone loved it! Serve with warm toasted bread or tortilla chips. 

Yields ~6 servings and takes 20 minutes to make


  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil (dried is OK too, + more for serving)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • One-28 ounce can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 8 ounce goat cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a skillet, combine garlic, olive oil, basil, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine for about 30-45 seconds until garlic starts to brown.
  3. Once garlic browns, add tomatoes (including juices). Simmer for 5-10 minutes until sauce thickens. Stir frequently.
  4. Pour this mixture into an oven-safe dish. Add “globs” of goat cheese to top.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Top with more fresh basil if desired and some salt and pepper. Serve warm with bread or chips!
