Here is a super little snack or appetizer or in this case we just had it with a bunch of dips and a glass of wine for a wonderfully tasty summer supper!
Here’s what’s in the goat cheese cakes:
- Goat cheese
- chopped basil
- chopped garlic
- chopped sun-dried tomato
- chopped jalapeno olives
- black pepper
Mix all of this very well together in a bowl. Then take out large spoonfuls of the mixture and make them into little disks or “cakes”. Then put them on a tray with some parchment paper and then put them in the freezer!
Keep them in the freezer for about 1/2 hour or until they get nice and firm. This makes them SO much easier to work with.
Then you are going to bread them with the usual process.
Then it is time to pan fry them in just a little oil.
Then back to the tray with parchment and into the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes max, just to set them.
Then you are ready to eat!
The Chef told me that he had prepared a salad of “local greens”. We laughed and laughed, because he just took them from the balcony garden!! That’s pretty local!
Then we paired them with some lovely tasty dips.
- spicy humus
- onion jam
- tomato compote
I will give you the recipes for these another time!
And then some roasted garlic, assorted olives with crostini and fancy bread!
With a nice glass of wine……nothin beats it!!
