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