Roasted Tomato And Garlic Cheese Spread

This is a recipe everyone always asks for after they try it. It is fast, easy, and delicious. I roast my own tomatoes, but if I am in a rush I use the following recipe. If you want to roast tomatoes; buy 2 or 3 roma tomatoes, slice thinly and season with kosher salt, fresh black pepper and 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil. Lay on a baking sheet in an even layer. Roast at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until tomatoes soften and start to brown around edges. Add to food processor with other ingredients.

8 oz Cream Cheese (full fat or light) at room temperature
4 oz Goat Cheese (at room temperature)
5 Cloves Fresh Garlic
1 3oz bag Julienne Sun Dried Tomatoes (smoked if you can find them)They are usually in the produce section
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
5 or 6 Grinds Fresh Black Pepper

Place garlic in food processor, chop finely. Add cheeses, and mix until blended. Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Serve with crackers, vegetables, on a sandwich, on top of grilled steak or chicken. Use your imagination, it's great on everything. Enjoy!
