goat cheese recipes

I'm a big fan of goat cheese but sadly, DH isn't. He'll be working a lot the rest of the week so I will be having some goat cheese while he's at work. I only have one recipe in my collection that calls for goat cheese. I will share mine, if you will share yours...
BTW, does anyone know if you can freeze goat cheese?

Chicken Breast stuffed with Goat cheese, Art hearts & Mushrooms
2 Tablespoons breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons lemon rind
teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper
1 (6-ounce)jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 (3-ounce)package goat cheese
6 mushrooms, sliced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Cayenne pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Combine first seven ingredients; stir well.
3. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to -inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Top each breast with 2 Tablespoons cheese mixture; roll up jelly-roll fashion. Tuck in sides; secure each roll with wooden picks.
4. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray or oil over medium-high heat.
5. Add chicken to pan, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Finish in the oven and bake at 375F for 15 minutes or until chicken is done.
Serves 4

What kind(s) of goat cheese do you like? There are many. I cook with it all the time.

Try roasting a beet, slicing it, setting the slices in some sherry or balsamic or red wine vinegar and a little salt, chilling in fridge. then serving on a bed or arugula with some soft goat cheese crumbled on top.

This thread has been moved to the dairy/eggs/cheese forum.

PS - I love goat cheese with dried cranberries and candied pecans over spinach salad and vinaigrette.

Oh this looks so fabulous corazon, thanks for putting it up, I adore the taste, texture and versatility of goat's cheese. It's great crumbled over a thin pizza crust with a scattering of sun dried (or sun-blush) tomatoes and a drizzle of good quality evoo.

One of my favorite restaurants in Norman Oklahoma is Legend's. ICadvisor pizza idea reminded me of it. They have a few goat cheese recipes on their menu that I love.

1. Pizza with thin crust topped with a pesto of oven roasted tomatoes and greek olives, goat cheese and sliced roma tomatoes

2. Portobello Mushroom Appetizer- a roasted Portobello mushroom topped with goat and mozzarella cheeses warmed with a slice of fresh tomato and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing

3. Lasagna-fresh spinach, feta and goat cheeses, lasagna noodles, baked in a sun dried tomato marinara

4. Greg's Chicken-Goat cheese and spinach stuffed boneless chicken breast dipped in bread crumbs and sauteed and then probably baked, topped with a sherry mushroom sauce.

When ever others really enjoy a particular food, I am intrigued, and I get this feeling like "....mmmmm, that looks interesting......oooh, I think I'll have some of that!". Sadly, I didn't take to goat cheese. A good friend of mine (who is a great cook) from New Zealand once said she thinks it tastes/smells like goat's bum, and now, when we see it on a menu we chuckle, remembering the goat's bum remark, and pass it up. Now I read your posts, and I'm thinking '.........mmmmm, that sounds interesting......oooh, I think I'll have some of that!". I'm going to try again. Today.

Hi sandy.

Read some of your posts & kept meaning to say hello & welcome to dc...and your pooch is so cute I'm a big cheese fan. (Sometimes I'd rather have cheese as a snack than chocolate -- both fattening.) If I see a recipe I like, I usually subsitute it with any favorite...feta, mozzarella, parmesan, gouda, brie & on and on. Think a tip I heard somewhere for slicing goat cheese, is to use dental floss. The recipes do look very good. Thank you for posting them for us.
