Goat Cheese Spread with Heirloom Tomatoes and Balsamic Glaze

This recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Abby Thome of The Thome Home.

Don’t let cooler weather stop you from enjoying the end of tomato season! Unlike most cheese dips that are gooey, this variation, made with goat cheese, is rich and creamy.

It is delicious spread on a warm, sliced baguette from Heinen’s Bakery with a drizzle of Heinen’s Balsamic Glaze.

If you’re looking to make this appetizer personal size, I recommend dividing the dip into small ramekins for individual portions.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
