The Opinionated Foodie: The Love (or Not) of Food and Everything That Goes with It


Super Bowl Recipe #1-Goat Cheese Dip

To begin this Super Bowl week of culinary goodness, I present Goat Cheese Dip.

Trust me, it’s better than it sounds.

In three ingredients, this dip makes an impression. It is easy and different. The sauce is warm and the cheeses are tangy. The mascarpone will melt into a lovely pool of cheesey goodness, and the goat cheese will remain firm and will provide a nice kick.

I’ve taken it to several gatherings, and even some of our most redneck friends have liked it.

It helps that I don’t always tell the ingredients from the get go.

The recipe:
Half a jar of spaghetti sauce
3 oz mascarpone cheese
2 oz goat cheese

In a large, flat-bottomed, round casserole or oven-proof bowl, pour the spaghetti sauce. In the center of the sauce, plop (for lack of a better word) the mascarpone then the goat cheese. Warm in the oven at 350 for about seven minutes.

I have also made this in the crock pot and my fondue pot.

Either way you heat it, serve it with crunchy rounds of toast.

This recipe is so easily adjustable. As it is, this will serve four with ingredients left over to make another batch.
