Transform a simple log of goat cheese into an impressive party appetizer by rolling the log of cheese in sunflower seeds and drizzling with honey. Serve with fresh berries and crackers.
1 (10.5-oz.) goat cheese log
1/2 cup roasted, salted sunflower seeds
1/3 cup honey
1 pt. fresh raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries
Garnish: fresh mint leaves
How to Make It
Press or roll goat cheese log in sunflower seeds, thoroughly covering cheese, including ends. Arrange cheese on a serving platter with any remaining sunflower seeds. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with berries. Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately with assorted crackers.
Excellent flavors of cheese, honey and salt â I rolled the goat cheese log (Choose a mild goat cheese as some can be a bit piquant) in the sunflower kernels, and served it with assorted crackers, sliced sweet-tart apples, blackberries, and clusters of red grapes which displayed a beautiful presentation and looked as though I spent some time on it. However, no one would guess how extremely easy this was to put together!
The second time I made this, I softened the cheese w/a little milk, put it in a small square server with sides, then sprinkled it with the sunflower seeds, drizzled the honey over and topped with the raspberries. Easier to eat. Next time I am going to melt a little raspberry preserves into the honey and see how that goes. Or maybe a little berry liqueur into the honey? oooooooh!
