Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter G

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Goat Cheese Baked in an Herb Crust! This elegant appetizer is the perfect compliment for an intimate gathering. The soft creamy cheese spreads nicely on bagel chips and water biscuits. I serve it together with shrimp cocktail and Sauvignon Blanc simply because of its aromatic uniqueness. 
GOAT CHEESE BAKED in an HERB CRUST
Ingredients:

8 ounce Goat Cheese Log

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Herbs:

1 tablespoon oregano 

1 tablespoon basil

1 tablespoon marjoram 

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon minced onion

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine herbs and sprinkle on a piece of waxed paper. Gently roll the cheese log in the herb mixture to coat it completely. Place goat cheese in a covered baker and drizzle with olive oil. Bake covered until softened, about 15-20 minutes. For a crusty top, brown for a few minutes more under the broiler. 
***Leftovers are a delicious substitute for mozzarella in the recipe for Letter C, Caprese Salad.
