Cheesy Roasted Garlic Chip Dip l

Whether it’s a football game, poker night or movie and wine night with the girls… the chip and dip combo is the best and easiest form of entertainment food. Now, throw cheese into the dip and well … forgetaboutit.

This dip has it ALL. And by “all” I of course mean cheese. Jarlsberg. Because it reminds me a lot of Gruyere and melts like a dream if you decided to, oh let’s just say… sandwich it on some bread and maybe throw some sliced apples or pears and grill it. Oh yes. Jarlsberg is new cheese-love of my life and is permanently on my list of favorite cheeses. Yes I have a list. And no I’m not ashamed.

One day I just decided to throw it in alongside shallots and green onions and roasted garlic. Then all of a sudden, I found myself elbow deep into the bag of chips, digging for crumbs and wondering what the heck happened, where did all the chips go?

So, my friends… pretty simple ingredients here. A little cream cheese… a little mayo and Greek yogurt as the base. But what happens next is almost unforgivable… almost.

Next start by cutting off the top third of a head of garlic, exposing the garlic. Then sprinkle the top of the garlic with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Lastly cover the baking dish with foil and popped it into a hot 400° oven to roast for about 40 minutes.

AHHHHHH. I wish you could smell this!

Then squeeze head of garlic (once it had cooled down a bit) and removed any hard-to-get cloves with a fork.

Next, take a fork and mashed the bejesus out of ’em. Fun. Times.

Then, in a medium bowl I combined; a half cup mayo, a quarter cup of Greek yogurt and 4 ounces of cream cheese (softened at room temperature) and mixed those until smooth and silky.

Next, on your box grater, I grated a glorious heaping cup of Jarlsberg.

Thenadd it all to the bowl. Keep goin’ it gets better.

Next, slice up a quarter cup of green onions and finely diced up a large shallot.

Then I added those into the bowl along with the smashed roasted garlic.

And then prayed.

“Lord help me from devouring this bowl of wonderful cheesy-shalloty-garlicky-goodness. Please forgive me for consuming an entire bag of kettle chips (as you know those are the best chips for dipping) and if you would be so kind as to grant me just one wish, I wish that this Cheesy Roasted Garlic Chip Dip does not find its way straight to my hips. Amen.”

But this was after I seasoned it with salt and pepper annnd just before I ate almost the entire bag of chips.
