Happy New Year and Roasted Garlic Bread w/Gorgonzola Dip

Just a short note to wish each of you the very best of health and happiness in the coming year. Thanks for visiting my blog – I love  hearing from you!

Here’s a nice appetizer for that New Years party – not difficult but oh so good!

Roasted Garlic Bread with a Gorgonzola Dip

From friend and colleague, Ellen.

For garlic oil:

1 large head garlic

½ cup olive oil

 

Cut off top of head of garlic to expose garlic cloves.  Drizzle with the olive oil.  Wrap in foil and bake in a 375 oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cloves are tender when you insert a knife.  Set aside to cool.

 

For the gorgonzola dip:

 

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup gorgonzola crumbled (about 4 ounces)

1 small baguette

 

 

Preheat oven to 400º.

 

Slice the baguette in half horizontally. Place the baguette halves on a foil lined cookie sheet.  Take the roasted garlic and place the cloves into a mini food processor.  Pulse until the cloves are smooth.  Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until you get a somewhat smooth mixture.  Spread on the baguette halves.  Toast in a 400 oven for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden.  Cut into 1 inch slices.

 

In a saucepan boil the cream, stirring occasionally until reduced by half or to ½ cup.  Add crumbled gorgonzola and cook over low heat, until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.

 

Pour sauce into a bowl and arrange garlic bread slices around the bowl.  Dip bread in gorgonzola dip.

 

Enjoy
