Getting My Goat
This week, I bought a big honkin’ log of goat cheese. I like to spread it on triscuits for a quick snack or even lunch. But, I also use it for two of my favorite recipes:
Roll goat cheese in chopped dried cranberries and pistachios. Spread on crackers. This is a crowd-pleaser. It’s great any time a year, but the colors are perfect for Christmas.
The second is fried or baked goat cheese. Simply slice the goat cheese when it is very cold. Dip in egg batter. I have even used egg-beaters. Dip in panko bread crumbs. And, bake at about 350 degrees, turning once until slightly soft and browned. Or, fry. When I say “fry,” I mean spray with Pam, and cook until browned.
I like to serve on salad with balsamic vinegar. Adding rotisserie chicken to the salad doesn’t hurt either.
