Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onion and Mission Fig Dip



I made this recipe over the Christmas holidays and it was a big hit. I wanted to record it here so I could keep it handy to make again.

When I was reading over the recipe again though, I realized that we didn’t really make it per the recipe. First, we didn’t put 10 cloves of garlic in. That’s a lot of garlic! It might be great and if you’re a garlic lover, go for it but I think we just put a bit in. We also didn’t put 3 rosemary sprigs in. I think I just rubbed a teaspoon of dried rosemary in.

This dip is great but does need to be kept warm. Prepare in a microwavable dish to that it can be easily warmed up. Serve with sliced baguette and maybe some sliced pear. It makes a lot, so halving the recipe is a good idea for a small event. Finally, I did have a bit of trouble tracking down Mission figs. My regular grocery stops didn’t have them but I did find them in the local health food store.
