Dear Kathleen…

Dear Kathleen,

I love making and serving appetizers, but I am having a dinner party this coming holiday season and would like to know how to keep my guests hungry for dinner while still providing yummy appetizers? –Appetizer momma

 

Dear Appetizer momma; I always try to keep my appetizers light, abbreviated, and complimentary to the next course.  Goat Cheese Spread is easy to assemble, keeps for a few days in the refrigerator before serving, not too filling, and is very simple yet elegant in presentation. 

 

Goat Cheese Spread

8 ounces of goat cheese, room temperature

4 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature

6 tablespoons minced fresh chives

1 large garlic clove, minced

 

1.      Mix goat cheese and cream cheese together in medium bowl.  Add chives and garlic; mix well.

2.      Shape into desired shape; refrigerate until ready to serve.  Top with fresh chopped chives.  Great with sliced French bread.

 

Note: Can be made 2 days in advance.  Cover and chill.  Top with chives just before serving.
