Goat cheese appetizer
Sometimes you need a quick and easy appetizer for a get together, enter in these stacks. Beautiful, simple, clean flavors, and easy to assemble! Enter in Ile de France goat cheese. They are having a recipe contest for a delicious appetizer involving their cheese.
I know some of you will recognize this recipe from a previous post, but it's just so darn good I couldn't pass up making it again! Ile de France mailed me a log of their goat cheese and I knew straight away that I would be making these with in... I think I'm going to try a pumpkin goat cheese cheesecake with the rest of the log... mmm cheesecake :)
Tomato, Spinach, and Goat cheese stacks
Take a big juicy tomato and slice it up.
Place some baby spinach leaves on top of the tomatoes.
Top off with the fried goat cheese and drizzle with some balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, crack some fresh pepper on top for good measure.
To make the cheese
Slice a log of goat cheese into medallions, dunk into a bowl with a beaten egg white, then dunk into a bowl with whole wheat bread crumbs/salt/pepper. Dip back into the egg white and then back into the breadcrumbs. Place in a frying pan with a spray of olive oil. Cook one side until browned, flip and brown the other side.
