Warm Leek & Goat Cheese Dip

4 Tbs. unsalted butter
8 small leeks, white and tender green part only - thinly sliced
1 lb. goat cheese at room temperature
1/2 lb. cream cheese at room temperature
2 Tbs. snipped chives
Serve with flatbreads, pita crisps, crackers or crusty bread

Melt butter in large skillet. Add leeks and stir to coat. Cover and cook over high heat until leeks begin to soften - about 3 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium heat until starting to brown - about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in goat cheese, cream cheese and S&P; stir until melted. Transfer to shallow serving dish and sprinkle with chives.

You can make this ahead and then heat in oven at 325 for 15 minutes before serving.

A British pub just opened in our area that offers this as an appetizer. Its amazing not at all what you expect. I could eat it with a spoon!
