Herbed Lemon Goat Cheese Dip with Toasted Baguette

 
I'm always looking for easy recipes of things I have on hand to throw together at the last minute. Nothing beats an old (or new) friend coming over for a glass of wine, delicious snack and great girl talk.
 
 
That's where Herbed Lemon Goat Cheese Dip and a toasted Baguette comes to play. Delicious, sort of fancy, and so easy. 




Start by zesting and juicing your lemon.




Add crumbled goat cheese, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper and gently mix in a medium sized bowl.


I bake and serve in these adorable little ramekins. I purchased these last summer from Target - and at just a few dollars each I use them for everything... Dips, dressings, sauces, snacks...








I gathered up several different herbs I had from my little herb garden on the back porch. You can use a combination of whatever you have. I have rosemary, thyme and parsley. Quite the combination.  Isn't that beautiful.


All prepped in a little ramekin.




Meanwhile I slice a baguette, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a touch of salt.

Right before baking I add a touch of olive oil to each of my ramekins.


Bake on 350° for 15-18 minutes or until cheese becomes golden brown on the edge.

 
A couple of glasses of Pinot Gris later and I lave such an elegant and more importantly easy snack for girlfriends.
