This is the most popular Appetizer that I have ever had the fortune to throw together! What’s more amazing is It’s simplicity! It’s a simple Cheese appetizer!
Goat Cheese Appetizer with Fig Jam
I was wandering the grocery store without a plan, trying to figure out what to serve my guests besides ham and sausage, nuts and the usual cheese ball – cracker combo.
My grocer has a large selection of cheeses and I was going to get a Brie and bake it but my husband is always telling me “that’s too frou frou”. So trying to do something different and delish without being “frou frou”, (is that really a word?) I was looking at the little logs of flavored Goat cheese. Then I was thinking I needed something to “jazz it up”.
I could not get wi-fi to look something up on Foodnetwork. dilemma ! I first had to decide…plain Goat cheese or flavored? I chose Honey because it would be light but not bland.
Still wandering around looking for inspo, I saw jams and Jjellies. I had never tasted Fig before but I thought it was a good Fall flavor….not too sweet. (I hoped!) I chanced it!
Well, long story short, Imagine my astonishment when everyone went crazy for it and devoured the whole plate rather quickly! Now I always include this affordable, easy and elegant cheese appetizer when I entertain in Fall and Winter!
It’s an inexpensive log of Honey flavored Goat Cheese, A jar of St. Dalfour Royal Fig Jam, and some Butter crackers of your choice to serve it on! (I buy the store brand!) This is a $3.00 jar of Jam but I have never tried a cheaper one because this one is so perfectly flavored. Not overly sweet, which is why I think It’s such a hit.
The Goat Cheese Appetizer “Recipe!”
(If you can call it that!)
Place the cheese on a plate and pour jam over it. I would do at least 2 plates because it goes so fast! Two or Three 4 oz. packages of Honey flavored Goat Cheese logs, One jar Of Fig Jam and a box of Butter crackers and you have a hit on your hands! Enjoy the Amazing Goat Cheese Appetizer with Fig Jam!
