Boshamps True Alabama Feta Cheese Dip

This Feta Dip is inspired by our favorite appetizer in Destin, FL – the True Alabama Feta Cheese Dip at Boshamps. Boshamps is probably our favorite restaurant at the beach. All of the food is made fresh to order and tastes great. I dream about their bacon jam and this feta dip. This recipe tastes EXACTLY like the dip in the restaurant. YASSSS!

Feta cheese, roasted garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, kosher salt, and black pepper. If you love the taste of feta cheese and garlic then this dip is for you! The dip only takes minutes to make and packs a TON of flavor! I especially love the texture of the warm feta. It is super creamy and delicious! I could honestly make a meal out of just this yummy dip. Give it a try ASAP!

How to Make Feta Cheese Dip

This dip is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a bowl, mash roasted garlic cloves until smooth. Add crumbled feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and freshly cracked black pepper. Stir to blend. Transfer the cheese mixture to a small baking dish or two wide-mouth mason jars. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until warm.

How to Make Roasted Garlic

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/4″ off of the top of a head of garlic to expose the cloves. Place the garlic in a piece of aluminum foil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Wrap the bulb up in the aluminum foil and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until the garlic is golden brown and soft.
