When it comes to laying out a Super Bowl party spread, it can sometimes seem like everyone serves the same kind of appetizers. While dips like bean dip and spinach and artichoke dip are indeed tried and true options, why not shake things up this year with tastes that are a bit more gourmet? Here are three dips that will win over your game day guests.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup part skim ricotta
- 1 (8-ounce) log goat cheese
- 3/4 cup crumbled feta
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup freshly chopped basil
- 1/4 pound yellow cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 pound red cherry tomatoes
- Toasted bread or crackers for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a small 6-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, ricotta, goat cheese, feta, garlic, salt, lemon juice, and basil. Use a spoon to combine as much as possible. When combined as much as you can by hand, stir in half of the tomatoes.
Pour mixture into baking dish and top with remaining tomatoes.
Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and slightly browned.
Serve with toasted bread or crackers.
Note: The tomatoes will be very hot. If they haven’t split in the oven, it helps to pierce each one to let some steam out once removed from the oven. Wait about 10 minutes before serving.
