soft goat cheese
chopped sun-dried tomatoes
chopped fresh parsley
This was great. I heated mine up, 350* for 20 minutes. It tasted excellent warm. I also added Rosemary, Thyme, Salt & Pepper.
A tasty recipe. Offers something different at parties.
Delicious, made the night before!
Pretty good, but easy on the garlic... three cloves was too overpowering for one cup of cheese.
I buy goat cheese in 11 oz packages from Costco so this was a hard recipe to convert. I omitted the parley and used 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (whole from a jar - marinated in olive oil). I used the food processor, but first finely chopped the garlic, then added the SD tomatoes until finely chopped, and finally added the goat cheese until blended. The garlic was a bit overwhelming when the spread was tasted alone, but when spread on thinly sliced baguettes (1/4 inch thick or so) it tasted great. I added a few tablespoons of the olive oil from the SD tomatoes because the spread seemed too think. This made a wonderful recipe for a holiday appetizer and it was very well received. I didn't have time to roast the garlic (as one reviewer suggested), but I think that might have been even better.
This is definitely better if you make it a day ahead so the flavors can meld. Very nice taste and easy to spread and it looks nice too!
To the 8 oz of goat cheese, I added 4 oz of cream cheese. Instead of adding garlic, I covered it with pesto. Then covered all with the sun-dried tomatoes. Lastly, I sprinkled on some pine nuts. Very yummy.
very yummy. Used roasted garlic cloves as well...better flavor and not too potent. Added a little salt and some crushed red pepper--Delish!
