Baked Goat Cheese Drizzled with Honey | Easy Appetizer



I'm not a huge horsd'oeuvres person.  In fact, if you come to our house for dinner, you'll likely find a bottle of open wine, a bowl of nuts and some sort of crostini.  In the Summer, I serve the crostini with a bowl of fresh tomatoes, basil & delicious olive oil.  In the Winter, I like something a bit heavier like a hot spinach dip (an oldie but a goodie).

Recently, Mike and I branched out of our regular dining routine and headed to a new "hot spot" in town...  I say that because we normally go to dark and cozy bistros that have been around for years instead of the new trendy place.  Hard to break old habits.  We had a fabulous meal, but my favorite part was our appetizer - Baked Goat Cheese drizzled with Honey, sprinkled with fresh Thyme, Cracked Pepper & Sea Salt.  It was served with warm grilled bread.  I could've eaten the entire thing.  And almost did.  

I love how simple it seemed - ingredients and preparation.  It has been our go-to snack this month.  It is salty, sweet, tangy and the perfect thing to schmear on toast.

Soft Goat Cheese
Honey
Fresh Thyme
Sea Salt
Cracked Pepper
Baguette
Olive Oil
Garlic

Prehead broiler in oven to 400 degrees.

In a small oven-proof bowl or ramekin, spread soft goat cheese. 

Prepare baguette by slicing into thin pieces.  Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.

Just before serving, bake under broiler in oven for 5-8 minutes, just until slightly warm.

At the same time, toast the bread under the broiler as well for 2-4 minutes until browned on the edges.

Remove bread from oven and rub with a raw clove of garlic that has been cut in half. 

Drizzle honey on warm goat cheese.  Sprinkle on fresh thyme leaves, sea salt & fresh cracked pepper.

  1. hi jenny! this looks awesome. what kind of honey do you think works the best with this? i don't know too much about the flavor differences among clover, wildflower, etc. maybe they are subtle enough that it wouldn't matter? would love to know what you think.
