      Delicious! This went perfectly as a spread/dip for flatbread. I made 2 changes, however. I doubled the garlic and omitted the butter. I think I will make it just like that next time, too. Thanks for the great recipe!

      There isn't much more you can expect from roast garlic and cheese except brilliance, and this is just that...I have to go and make some more now as I know in this house it wont last long.
