I know there are lots of people out there who would qualify as goat cheese fanatics. Many of my best friends fit into this category. While I do enjoy goat cheese, it isn’t a guaranteed hit for me. The texture and the flavor have to be right. If it’s overly tangy or too crumbly, I’ll pass, but when it is right, it can be downright dreamy. Recently I tried a whipped goat cheese dip with caramelized onions at a restaurant and I basically haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. And when that happens, the only remedy is to find a way to make it at home.
This dip is a perfect example of elegant simplicity. Just a handful of ingredients and minimal prep work give you this addictive creamy dip that is like a way sophisticated and way more delicious version of the onion soup dip from our semi-homemade days of high school or so. Serve with veggies, grilled bread, or any other edible item that serves as a delivery vehicle for getting it into your mouth as soon as possible.
