Perfect for a light appetizer or a creamy salad topper, these baked goat cheese rounds are ridiculously easy to put together and can make it look like you really know how to cook.
Oh and another great part about this dish? Only four ingredients. Four! Children could make this!
Baked Goat Cheese Rounds
4 oz. Fresh Goat Cheese
1 Tbls Honey
3 Tbls Olive Oil
2 C Breadcrumbs
1. Ohhh Honey – Preheat your oven to 350°. Place your goat cheese in a bowl and pour a tablespoon of honey over cheese. Mix the two together with a spoon until well blended. In addition to adding a depth of flavor, the honey will help to balance out the tartness of the goat cheese.
2. You Spin Me Right Round – Scoop a couple of tablespoons of your goat cheese mixture into your hand and form it into a round patty. Do this until you run out of cheese, you should get 6 rounds out of this recipe.
4. That’s Crumby – Spill your breadcrumbs out onto a plate. One by one, place each cheese round into the breadcrumbs, making sure to coat it evenly on all sides. You can then set the finished round onto a baking sheet, I like to cover mine with a silicone mat.
5. Lets Get Baked Doood – Bake the sheet of rounds in the oven for 6 minutes. This will be plenty of time for the breadcrumbs to crisp and the cheese to get super-soft. Let them sit for a few minutes on the pan before removing them or they’ll end up in 100 pieces.
