If you haven’t tasted a goat cheese log before you are in for a taste sensation. These easy goat cheese logs are a quick and easy but crowd-pleasing addition for any party or occasion.
They can be served with an assortment of your favorite crackers and vegetable crudites, or alternatively you can slice thinly and place on top of your favourite mixed green salad.
Tip: Regular kitchen knives tend to squish the log and don’t cut smoothly. A good alternative is to use dental floss to slice logs into even, round slices. Just make sure it isn’t the mint flavoured kind, unless of course you particularly want a mint flavour on your cheese log.
This recipe is just an example to give you a starting idea of the different things that can be done with goat cheese logs. There are many variations you can create with just a few simple ingredients.
One suggestion is that you can try using toasted walnuts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, pine nuts, or pistachios instead of pecans.
Alternatively, you could eliminate the nuts completely and use your favorite fresh herbs, edible flowers or dried fruits, such as cranberries, apricots, or figs. For a truly decadent treat, try coating a goat cheese log in a semi-sweet chocolate ganache topped with chopped peanuts.
If you want to make several varieties, it is more cost-effective to buy the larger 11 oz. goat cheese logs and cut them into 3 smaller logs.
