||Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a glass Pyrex dish (I use a pie dish) with a little butter or non-stick spray. |
In a medium bowl, combine the softened cream cheese with all of the other cheeses. Mix well with a rubber spatula to combine thoroughly until smooth. Add the pepper flakes, freshly ground pepper and combine.
||Pour the mixture into the greased dish and level the mixture with spatula. Place it in the oven and cook for 15 minutes (prepare bread while cooking - see below). Turn the oven on Broil, add diced tomatoes into center of cheese mix and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or so, until the top is bubbly and golden brown. |
||While the cheese is cooking, slice the baguette and lay on a baking sheet. Add 1/4 cup of butter to a microwave safe bowl, add the minced garlic and microwave together for 30 seconds. Brush garlic butter onto each slice of baguette. Broil for 5-7 minutes until golden brown, rotating the pan half way through. |
