This roasted goat cheese with honey and thyme recipe is a great appetizer. Petite wedges of cheese are roasted golden brown, drizzled with honey, and then sprinkled with thyme and ground black pepper. The sweet honey and fresh thyme nicely offset the sharp taste of goat cheese. Serve these alone or with balsamic-drizzled fresh berries as a garnish.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 6 ounces Bonde de Gatine cheese (substitute sharp goat cheese or Feta)
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 3 teaspoons chopped, fresh thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat a broiler. Slice the cheese in half lengthwise, and then crosswise into 6 pieces (you will have a total of 12 slices) and then arrange them on a very lightly greased baking sheet. Roast the cheese under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it just begins to turn light, golden brown.
Transfer the roasted cheese to individual serving dishes. Garnish each piece of cheese with 1 1/2 teaspoons of honey, 1/4 teaspoon of fresh thyme, and a pinch of black pepper. Serve immediately.
