This is sooo good. Very rich. If you like garlic, this is a must try. The prep time includes the time to roast garlic.

Outstanding! Made this as an appetizer for a New Year's Eve party, and the dip was gone in 20 minutes. Guests loved it! Changes I made to this recipe include using 3 heads of garlic as opposed to one (I really LOVE garlic), 8 ounces of cream cheese (1 pkg.) as opposed to 16 ounces and a mixture of cheeses to sprinkle on top, rather than just Mozzarella (I used a bag of Sargento's 6 Cheese Italian). I also placed the dip under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the top. Came out beautifully!!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Cut the garlic head in half along the"equator" (with root and stem ends representing the poles).
  3. Place the garlic, cut side down on a foil lined baking sheet and roast uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until tender.
  4. (or use your favorite roasting instructions) To remove the garlic, turn heads upside down and gently squeeze the garlic out of the skins.
  5. Reduce oven temp to 350.
  6. With a food processor or electric mixer, blend cream cheese, Asiago cheese, heavy cream, sour cream and parsley until well-blended add garlic and blend again.
  7. Place mixture into a casserole or baking dish and top with shredded mozzarella.
  8. Bake about 20 minutes until bubbly and golden brown on top.
  9. Serve with firm crusty bread, crackers or other dippers of your choice.
  10. I have added artichoke hearts to the dip for a nice change.
  11. Update: I have been replacing the heavy cream with sour cream (I have been using a total of 1 cup) and it comes out fine.
