DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Cut the garlic head in half along the"equator" (with root and stem ends representing the poles).
  • Place the garlic, cut side down on a foil lined baking sheet and roast uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until tender.
  • (or use your favorite roasting instructions) To remove the garlic, turn heads upside down and gently squeeze the garlic out of the skins.
  • Reduce oven temp to 350.
  • 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.
  • Place mixture into a casserole or baking dish and top with shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake about 20 minutes until bubbly and golden brown on top.
  • Serve with firm crusty bread, crackers or other dippers of your choice.
  • I have added artichoke hearts to the dip for a nice change.
  • 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.
