When it comes to a hero cheese in the kitchen and the ultimate in versatility in cooking you truly can’t beat imported Goat Cheese!  It has a rich, creamy texture and slightly tart taste that works well with everything from appetizers to main dishes, salads and desserts.  You can even enjoy it chilled and crumbled, melted, or as pretty pop of color and flavor as a garnish.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas to get you going!

Starters

When it comes to starters and snacks imported Goat Cheese can’t be beat!  It lends itself to so many different types of dishes, flavors, and cuisines.

The meltability of goat cheese adds incredible flavor and creaminess to these Savory Mushroom, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Crepes.

Try our topping pizzas and flatbreads with a sprinkle of goat cheese like in our Flatbread Pizzas with Goat Cheese and Baby Tomatoes – it’s a simple starter everyone will love.  You can also fold goat cheese into your favorite dips, melt it into quesadillas, or even use it to top your favorite nachos for a creamy-tart elegant edge.

Or make imported Goat Cheese the star of the party with our ridiculously easy, bubbly, highly shareable Baked Goat Cheese and Marinara Dip with Garlic Toast.

Soups and Salads

Just about any soup or salad is made even more delicious with crumbled imported Goat Cheese as a topping!  Try sprinkling some on your favorite butternut or black bean soups this fall instead of your usual sour cream.  You can also add it to your everyday lunch or dinner salads topped with balsamic or other vinaigrettes.  

For an upscale, French-inspired salad that also works as a side dish we love this French Lentil Salad with Tarragon, Cranberries, and Goat Cheese.
