Herbed Goat Cheese Pepper Bites

In case you haven’t caught on by now, my family and I are obsessed with goat cheese.

Why?

Because it’s goat cheese, duh.

It’s so good, in fact, that it can stand alone as the main ingredient in many recipes. Case in point: goat cheese bites. Just some good ol’ goat cheese and some herbs to enhance the flavor. Add in a bell pepper for a burst of refreshment and there you go- a perfect appetizer for Memorial Day 🙂

Herbed Goat Cheese Pepper Bites

Herbed Goat Cheese Pepper Bites 

Ingredients: 

1 bell pepper (I used green, but any color is fine)

4 oz organic goat cheese

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

1 tbsp sun dried tomatoes, chopped

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp dried parsley

1/4 tsp dried thyme

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 dried chives

black pepper

Directions:

Chop the bell pepper into small pieces and set aside. In a bowl, combine goat cheese, garlic, tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, paprika and chives. Mash together until the goat cheese has turned slightly pinkish-red and everything is evenly mixed. Using a teaspoon, plop goat cheese onto each pepper piece. Sprinkle with black pepper and garnish with more chives. Eat right away, or store in fridge until ready to serve.
