It is fall in Minnesota. The leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp, and football season is in full force. For the Fitzy house that normally means Sundays are spent going to church, watching football, and snacking. This batch of garlic herb dip is a family favorite that can be served with a variety of crackers or chips. And…on the rare occasions you have any left over, it is good for several days in the refrigerator.

- 4 oz. cream cheese

This recipe is easy to whip up. You can adjust the amount of garlic to your preferred taste level. We tend to like garlic around here.
This garlic herb dip is also a crowd pleaser. It is not overly garlicky (is that really a word?). Next time you have to take an appetizer to a get-together, you can whip up this dip, grab a bag of crackers, and head out the door in no time.
