I love a good appetizer, and when they are dips I’m completely obsessed! This Roasted Garlic Cream Cheese Dip has minimal ingredients but is huge on flavor!

We have been making this dip for so many years that it has become a staple recipe when we are making appetizers, usually when we do we make more than one.

You have heard me over and over say that I love easy recipes, and this one is definitely easy! We use our Roasted Garlic recipe for this recipe.

Roasted Garlic is a game-changer and using it in various recipes is a must in my opinion and it works so well in this dip. Instead of just regular garlic or garlic powder.

The addition of the actual garlic to this really makes this dip what it is! If you are a garlic lover like I am then you will fall in love with this Roasted Garlic Cream Cheese Dip.

Now, this is not overpowering it is muted with your cream cheese and sour cream but it does let that garlic flavor shine through perfectly!

Some of our other favorite appetizer recipes we have on our site include: Parmesan Potatoes, Sweet Chipotle Bacon Crackers and Easy Deviled Eggs.

DOES ROASTING THE GARLIC BRING OUT THE FLAVORS?

100% yes it does. When it roasts the sugars inside of the garlic itself caramelize which in turn makes the garlic a little bit sweeter, but with a richness. 

Usually, just regular garlic if you were to eat it you would have this tangy bite to it, but roasting the garlic takes that away and creates a smoother flavor that goes well in many dishes.

You can serve anything that you’d like to serve! We like to serve this Roasted Garlic Cream Cheese Dip with chips, crackers, baguettes, pretzels, vegetables, and more.

  1. Dana,
    Your dip looks wonderful–I roast most of my garlic crop every June and store in my freezer, so I could whip this up any time. I see you live in Florida, so I’m guessing daffodils don’t grow there (they didn’t grow in Hawaii where I lived) but if you’d like to know how to get two ‘cook’s crops’ in storage quantities, from one garden bed over 12 months, my instructions are up over at Gastronomical Sovereignty. The time to start planning this garden–and planting your garlic, so you’ve got it for future dips like this one–is now!
    I’m glad to follow you on Tasty Tuesdays!

  2. This probably wouldnt be a good dip to make for date night Im guessing … unless you both love the smell and taste of garlic! It does look delicious though 🙂
