Baked Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Dip

Written By: Chris - May• 04•12

I was inspired to make this dish after Bill and I recently went out to dinner at a new local place that we discovered…  They had a great appetizer called “Fire Baked Cheese goat cheese and roasted red peppers” served with flatbread on the menu.  We weren’t’ sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised as it was very rich and delicious!  We’ve revisited the establishment because they have a great Chef who makes terrific dishes!  They also have wonderful wines offered at half price on Wednesdays!  Our kids loved the cheese dip as well, so I decided that I would give it a whirl and try my own version!

If you follow my blog, you know that I always work with what I have on hand in the fridge and pantry.  I usually have cooked caramelized onions on reserve so that when I’m in a hurry I can just grab!  I also had some left over roasted red peppers and red pasta sauce…  Here is what I came up with:

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup semi-soft Goat Cheese
1/2 Cup Monterrey Jack Cheese
3/4 Cup Gruyere Cheese
1/4 Cup Cheddar Cheese
2/3 Cup cooked chopped Onions
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 Cup prepared pasta Sauce
1 Cup Roasted Red Peppers

Chop the red peppers and combine with all of the other ingredients.

Place into medium size baking dish that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 400 for about 20-30 minutes until golden brown, hot and bubbly!

I served this with Naan, which is an Indian flat bread that I purchased at the grocery store.  I simply drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt.  Bake this on a stone until crispy on the bottom and heated all the way through!

Enjoy!

Cheers!
