Speaking of Goat Cheese..

Pin It
I bought something like this at Epicure Market in Miami Beach a few years ago for a small fortune and after that, decided to make it myself to much acclaim from family and friends. If you happen to go to Costco, buy one of their big logs, use half for this and save the rest for omelets and salads

Goat Cheese Appetizer

1 small log goat cheese
olive oil
6 cloves garlic
herbes de provence or rosemary
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Roll the log in Herbes de Provence or Rosemary and red pepper flakes to cover all over. Get a small plastic container with a lid and place the goat cheese in it. Add about 4 TB of Olive oil. Mash and slice the garlic and add on top. Baste log with olive oil a few times. Cover the container and let it marinade for at least 2 hours. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use. Take out of the refrigerator at least an hour in advance. Place in a serving plate and drizzle the olive oil and garlic mix over it. Serve with mini toasts. When you spread it on the toast, make sure you add some of the olive oil drizzle to it! Put whatever is left after the party back in the container and in the refrigerator. With time it gets better and better. Add more olive oil if needed. You can always throw a piece in an omelet!
