Goat Cheese, Fig and Olive Dip

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 20
  1. 20 oil-cured black olives, pitted
  2. 2 garlic cloves
  3. 2 pounds cream cheese
  4. 1 pound fresh goat cheese
  5. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  6. 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1/2 cup fig jam
  9. 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  10. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  11. Pita chips and crudités, for dipping
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a food processor, pulse the olives and garlic until finely chopped, about 10 seconds. Add the cream cheese, goat cheese, mayonnaise, and Parmigiano-Reggiano and process until blended, stopping to scrape down the side of the bowl as necessary. Season the dip with salt and pepper and pulse to blend.
  2. Spread the fig jam in two 10 1/2-by-6-inch ceramic baking dishes. Spoon the goat cheese mixture on top. In a small bowl, toss the panko with the olive oil. Scatter the panko over the cheese and bake for about 20 minutes, until the panko is golden and the dip puffs slightly. Serve hot, with pita chips and crudites.
