When you have guests and want to serve adult beverages and a snack, cheese, fruit and crackers are perfect. I was hoping to find the fresh goat cheese spread that our favorite party store usually carries but they were all out. I have a few good hard, savory, even stinky cheeses to serve but wanted a milder, spreadable cheese. Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. I put together a real simple, 4 ingredient spread that tastes pretty darn good. Unlike cream cheese, goat cheese has a little kick or zing. But if you’re one of those people who dislike goat cheese, cream cheese would work in this recipe.
10 oz package goat cheese at room temperature
8 oz lemon (or plain) yogurt
zest of one lemon
2 T honey plus a little more to drizzle
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until everything is incorporated.
Use a spatula to transfer the spread to a serving container and refrigerate.
Before you refrigerate, have a sample first. Because a good cook tastes everything before serving their guests.
Drizzle wth a little more honey before serving. Enjoy!
NOTE: Like I mentioned earlier, this would also be good with cream cheese as well…might taste a little like a bite of cheese cake actually. You can add a little more zest or honey based on your personal tastes. May also be good with a little fresh mint or thyme mixed in.
