Have you been planning your holiday menu for weeks?  Or…Not so much – still holding out.

Either way, keeping these Mini Goat Cheese Balls on your radar might not be a bad idea.  Just saying’.  They are truly the definition of Simply Delicious!  Simple to make, a delicious combination of holiday flavor & they look festive too!  …And as a total bonus they can be prepped ahead of time, or at the last minute if your holding out.  Which in our book is always a win for holiday get together prepping!  We made ours the day before & enjoyed how the flavors came together even that much more!

Ingredients
  • 1 Log (4 oz) Mackenzie Creamery Original Chèvre
  • 1/3 cup Pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup Dried Cranberries, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. Fresh Rosemary, minced
  • 1/4-1/2. tsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Butter

 

Instructions

In a small skillet lightly toast pecans on medium heat in butter (careful not to burn them, like me on round one)

Add rosemary & brown sugar at the very end for just a few seconds

Let cool before handling

Mix cranberries with the pecan mixture on a small plate

Shape goat cheese into balls, using a half teaspoon or so to shape

Roll each goat cheese ball in the cranberry & pecan mixture

Store goat cheese balls in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  We suggest covering them, or storing in a closed container so that they don’t get dry.

Notes

This recipe makes about 8-10 mini cheese balls.  We wanted these to be easily consumed in one single bite.  Feel free to adjust to your liking!

Enjoy!
