How to make the best goat cheese board
You will need:
- a large board
- goat cheese (I used 2 logs)
When choosing toppings you can pick whatever you want but here are some things that I think are great options:
- dried fruits (aprciots, cherries, cranberries)
- jellies, preserves or an apple/pumpkin butter
- cured meats
- fresh herbs
- drizzle with honey, balsamic glaze, olive oil
- serve with some crackers, pita chips, or crostini
I chose to make a trio of different flavors so there’s a variety but you can do whatever you’d like!
Here is my recipe:
You will want to start by taking your goat cheese out of the refrigerator and allowing to get to room temp to make it easy to spread. Using a spoon or spatula, spread onto your board. Divide the board into 3 sections lengthwise. In the first section, top with dried cherries, dried apricots and nuts. Drizzle with honey. In the middle, top with some pepper jelly. On the last section, top with blackberries, chopped basil, grated lemon and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Doesn’t this look delicious???
