If you’re ever in need of an easy, 10 minute dip recipe that tastes like a charcuterie board with none of the work — I’ve got you covered with Warm Fig and Prosciutto Goat Cheese Dip. The combination of sweet and savory flavors in this creamy, cheesy dip are so craveable, and simple to make, too!
This goat cheese dip is a riff on my Fig and Prosciutto Rollups, and we like it better because our marriage isn’t put on the line every time we make it together. I say this because we inevtibly find ourselves wildly assembling the rollups 5 minutes before leaving for whatever party we’re taking them to in a rather unfriendly manner:
Me: Umm, can you spread goat cheese faster? We’re going to be late. (I HATE being late.)
Him: UMMMM can YOU stop eating all the prosciutto? We’ll have nothing left to take to the party!
Stare off ensues.
Easy Warm Goat Cheese Dip
That is to say, compared to spreading softened goat cheese and fig jam onto rapidly disappearing prosciutto slices, this warm baked dip is a breeze. Fold softened goat cheese and cream cheese with chopped prosciutto then spread into a baking dish. Dollop with fig jam then bake for 10 minutes and top with chopped pistachios. Easy, right?
Like a cheese plate in dip form. Cheesy, sweet, and savory – so good!
Not only is Warm Fig and Prosciutto Goat Cheese Dip great to set out for family and friends at home, but it’s best served warm vs piping hot so it travels well. Slap some foil on that baby and become the guest with the best appetizer at the next party or holiday potluck you attend.
How to Make This Recipe
Start by adding softened goat cheese (chevre) and softened 1/3 less fat cream cheese to the bowl of a food processor or in a medium-sized bowl. Process until smooth or use beaters to whip the cheeses together.
Scoop the whipped cheeses into a bowl if you used a food processor then fold in chopped prosciutto. La Quercia is my go-to prosciutto for pairing with cheese and crackers but you save yourself a few bucks and go with a less expensive brand for this recipe since it’s mixed into the dip.
Scoop the cheese and prosciutto mixture into the bottom of a 9″x7″x2″ baking dish (or any similar sized baking dish – a pie pan works great too) then spread fig jam on top.
Bake the dip for 8-10 minutes then sprinkle chopped pistachios on top and serve with crackers. So easy, right? I hope you love this delicious, sweet and savory dip — enjoy!
