Cheese has a regular place on my table, especially when I’m sharing it with guests.
Unfortunately, the cheese platter can start getting a bit predictable. Don’t believe me? Let me guess what you’ve been doing…
You’ve been buying your go to favorites and showcasing them on a lovely tray. And if you’re feeling fancy, you’re dressing it up a bit, drizzling it with a touch of honey or maybe pairing it with a rich fig jam.
I know that’s what you’ve been doing because I’ve been doing the same thing. And you’ve probably kept it up because, well, it works. But if we really want to do something special, we need to get a little more adventurous.
I think my latest discovery will bring a little delight back to our Champagne hour!
This week, I’ve been playing with a French cheese puff concept. But instead of grating in a hard cheese, like you would traditionally find in this recipe, I used a soft goat cheese, that is a Bijou-like Crottin with a light, delicate flavor from Vermont Creamery.
I know you love that cheese is so quick and easy. Trust me, I’m not about to add stress to your packed schedule (or mine)! That’s one thing I love about this recipe: it’s only about 8 minutes of prep and 10 to 15 minutes of baking time.
Feel free to experiment with this recipe to suit your taste and your creativity. You might want to try different herbs or cheeses, to start.
These delicious little cheesy bites really shine when paired with a glass of sparkling rosé.
(I tested it for you . . . just to make sure.) You and your family and guests will love them. And they’re so much more interesting than tiers of cheese on a plate!
