Roasted Garlic And Sriracha Cheese Dip

When it comes to professional football, I always tell people that I have favorite players, not favorite teams. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are my two favorites. So I always root for their teams. Hubby is a Giants fan, so I root for them too. I do, however, have some teams that I dislike. Such as the Patriots. I know we lived in Boston for ~7 years, but I just can’t root for the Pats.

With Hubby being a Giants fan, and me being a Peyton Manning fan, it makes a lot of sense. So I was really excited this weekend to watch the matchup of the Pats vs the Broncos. I won’t go in much detail here, but let’s just say I was happy to be a Manning fan on Sunday. While many of my friends back in Boston were bummed about a loss.

Since we knew that game would be a good one, we had some friends over and I whipped up some appetizers to enjoy. This dip caught my eye because, well, sriracha, cheese, and roasted garlic. Enough said. I served it with some Pretzel Crisps, and this would be great with homemade pretzel bites as well.

    These look amazing! My Mom has made cornish hens for dinner parties and they are always raved about! I love your recipe with the extra broth poured over the top, and I totally agree, 20 cloves of garlic you can never go wrong!

    Mmmm garlic 🙂 Your little cornish hens are adorable. My mom used to slather a little molasses on her hens before baking them. It made a really delicious glaze.

    I agree – so elegant and tasty. I’ve only made hens once or twice and always mean to pick them up again. This recipe sounds delicious!
