My version of an Obatzda cheese that is served with soft pretzels and washed down with good beer. I serve this at my annual Oktoberfest Party. Not a traditional obatzda, but a really tasty one!

  • Slice the top off the garlic, exposing the cloves. Place in a square of aluminum foil and drizzle olive oil over garlic. Wrap foil around garlic.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until garlic is tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool roasted garlic completely.

  • Combine Camembert cheese, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, beer, and butter in a food processor; process until smooth. Add roasted garlic cloves, onion, caraway seeds, and paprika; process until smooth. The mixture may be a little on the "soupy" side but will firm up upon refrigeration; transfer to an air-tight container and refrigerate until flavors blend, at least 2 hours.

Made as written except that Camembert cheese was not available in my area. I did some research and found Brie to be the best substitute and so that is what I used. This was very different from any cheese dip I've had before and very good I might add. This one is a definite keeper! Read More

The only change I made was to omit Caraway seeds........ not my decision I might add with a nudge and a wink to other men who love to cook and create.........;) Thanks for a tasty recipe with the right amount of garlic. Read More
