Have you ever made baked goat cheese? It’s really quite easy.
I’m sure there are a lot of things you could do with it once it is baked, but my favorite is to put it on top of a salad and it makes a nice light supper.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Rounds or squares of goat cheese. The size depending on what you are going to do with it.
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- shaved almonds lightly chopped
Ready your baking sheet with some parchment paper (never cook without it!) and set the oven to 350 degrees
With your egg in one dish and your almonds in another:
Start by putting a piece of goat cheese into the egg and making sure it is well covered on all sides. Then transfer to the nuts and do the same thing, making sure the nuts stick to all the edges, then place on your tray. Repeat.
Pop them in the oven and let bake for about 7 minutes. But keep a close eye because if they get over done they will just become pools of goat cheese and no one needs that. You know they are done when the almonds get slightly toasted and they cheese takes on a marshmallow type appearance.
Let them cool for a minute or two so they will keep their shape and then pop them on top of your favorite salad and you’re in business!
