Goat Cheese Dumplings...Sort of??

My previous post on Boursin (French Herbed Cheese) created quite a bit of interest.  Today I am making butternut squash soup.  I have multiple recipes for this and while I was sorting through I found one that added on goat cheese dumplings.  Mixture of herbed goat cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, flour, garlic.  To be dropped into the boiling soup and cooked for approx. 2 minutes.  I did not have enough goat cheese, just about an ounce left over from making some stuffed dates (see my blogsite) for a birthday present.  So I whipped up a semi-boursin adding cream cheese, butter and herbs to the goat cheese.  Right now, the soup is ready to be pureed and reheated and the dumpling mixture is resting in the refrig.  I'll let you know how it goes.  I thought it sounded intriguing. Very rich and certainly not low cal, will serve with a simple salad with vinegar and oil dressing to counteract the richness of the soup.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Update: I ran into a dilemma, as stated above I used one recipe for the soup and one for the dumplings. My soup recipe called for half and half to be added at the end and NOT BOILED. The dumpling recipe said to spoon into boiling soup. So.....I brought soup to a boil, added half and half,stirred, pulled pan off heat, turned down the burner and spooned in dumplings. They did not plump up as I had envisioned, sort of stayed in a creamy soft state shape. They were however delicious. I had some dumpling mix left over. I am going to freeze it. I think it would be so good spooned into a lamb stew or some osso bucco. Goat cheese and lamb = good combo.

Goat cheese and anything (ok - almost anything!) is a good combination (= While I'm sorry it didn't work out like you envisioned, it does sound good!

About Me
I am a retired registered nurse. I have two fabulous grandchildren ages 10 and 7, they live only 1 mile from me so we cook together often.
My favorite things to cook
I like one pot meals, slow cooker, rustic fare. Lately, I am cultivating recipes for soup and have turned out some really good results, especially using curry seasoning. I am not a baker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make many of my mother's dishes. I like to entertain with just a wide array of appetizers sometimes, even though it is labor intensive.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian spaghetti sauce. My famous pot roast made in an oven bag. Appetizers.
My cooking tragedies
My latest debacle is making Pho, Vietnamese beef soup. Very labor intensive, many exotic ingredients, cook all day. I went to strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander and forgot to put anything under the colander. Down the drain it went; 7 hours worth of broth. Oh Well!
