  • Roll the goat cheese into balls, dip in an egg mixture and then in a chopped up hazelnut/panko bread crumb mixture and fry in a little oil. Put over a basic salad with a light balsamic vin.

    Also I roast off beets, marinate the beets in balsamic vin., toss with some chopped pecans and smother them with goat cheese....i too love goat cheese!!!

  • Rigatoni With Goat Cheese Sun Dried Tomatoes And Kale
    1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, oil packed, cut into "sprinkles"
    1/2 teaspoon olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/4 cup shallot, minced
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    4 cups kale, coarsely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    12 ounces pasta (I use whole wheat bow ties), cooked
    1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
    1/2 cup water
    Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add kale; saute 3 minutes or until wilted. Add tomatoes, saute 2 minutes. As 1/2 cup water, oregano, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes or until kale is tender. (Depending on the point in the season that you are cooking this it could take quite a bit longer than 3 minutes to get the kale nice and tender.)

  • Combine the pasta, kale mixuture, and goat cheese in a large bowl, and toss well.

    **The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato sprinkles and 2 cups boiling water. The sprinkles are rehydrated for 30 minutes and then drained, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid. This liquid is added after the tomatoes, rather than the plain water.

    This recipe for Rigatoni With Goat Cheese Sun Dried Tomatoes And Kale serves/makes 4

  • I LOVE goat cheese in my spaghetti. My family doesn't like it though, so I just crumble it on top of my plate and it is sooooooooo delish!

  • Big hit at our New Year's party:

    Goat cheese quesadillas

    Spread the goat cheese on tortillas. Top half of the goat-cheesed-tortillas with thinly sliced grilled/sauteed sweet onions. In a lightly oiled pan place one tortilla w/ onions topped w/ one goat-cheese-only tortilla and brown both sides slightly.

    These were simple and tasty. Be warned that the cheese doesn't really melt and meld together, so be careful flipping it. Or you could add some monterrey jack to the recipe if you want to keep it all together, but I think that would take away from your obvious love of goat cheese. :)

  • I forgot that a friend had mixed it with watermelon chunks. Sadly I don't remember if she included chopped mint or if it was basil or some other herb. I didn't taste it but people seemed to really like it.
