Tangy young goat cheese is the base for this savory spread. Combined with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and fresh parsley. This simple spread is excellent served with a sliced baguette and a glass of red wine.

Pretty good but easy on the garlic... three cloves was too overpowering for one cup of cheese. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

very yummy. Used roasted garlic cloves as well...better flavor and not too potent. Added a little salt and some crushed red pepper--Delish! Read More

Definitely very tangy and delicious but a little goes a very long way! I made this for a party this week and couldn't resist a taste. I put in the recommended amount of garlic and thought it was fine--but I LOVE garlic. This went really well with pretzel sticks; I'll have to bring those along with the crackers I was planning. If you aren't a huge fan of goat cheese doing half goat cheese and half cream cheese might cut the tang a bit. If you don't want to measure the goat cheese into a cup (I didn't want to) a cup of goat cheese is 8 oz. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
