Looking in magazines, you always see appetizers that you want to serve at your next gathering yet you always forget about it until after. Or you go over to someone’s house for dinner and you want to bring the hosts something as a gift yet you forget to buy them something until you’re about to leave. Next thing you know, you are rummaging through your fridge and try to put something together.
That’s how I came upon this “recipe” for you. Why did I put recipe in “”‘s? Well, I would consider it as a DIY. After getting a bunch of fresh Goat Cheese rolls from Costco (yes Costco, they surprisingly have good cheese) and being stuck in a creative rut prior to leaving to our hosts for dinner, I knew that we had to come up with something quick yet delicious.
When looking up for Goat Cheese Appetizers, I fell upon pictures of marinated Goat Cheese. After a little more research, I stumbled upon pictures of rolled goat cheese. Thus, I went for the spice cabinet and grabbed Paprika and Herb de Provence, for a savory approach and walnuts and honey for a sweet approach.
For this recipe, you can change it to satisfy your palate. So experiment with the spices and herbs that you have. Serve it along crackers or bread. This DIY recipe will make you seem like you put so much thought (and time) into the dish when it really only took 5 minutes over all.
Goat Cheese Platter
- Goat Cheese
- 1 tblsp Paprika
- 1 tblsp Herb de Provence
- 1/4 cup chopped Walnut
- 2 tsp Honey
Otherwise, top goat cheese with 1 tblsp herbs of your choice.
Leaving the goat cheese in a roll, split it in 3rds if you’re using 3 different toppings.
- If you are using 2 toppings split it in 2; using 6 toppings, split it into 6 pieces, etc.
On a clean surface, arrange the toppings so that it’s as long as the roll. Slowly and firmly, roll the cheese. Using fingers, press the toppings in on places that are bare and areas you believe need more.
Slice the cheese and top some with honey for a touch of sweetness. We added honey to our walnut cheese rolls!
