How to make a Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Log
The first step to making this simple appetizer is to gather all of your ingredients:
- Goat Cheese Log– these logs can usually be found in the deli or specialty cheese section of the grocery store. This recipe calls for a plain one, however if you see a flavor you would like with the cranberries and pecans, go for it!
- Cranberries– dried sweetened cranberries roughly chopped is all you need.
- Pecans– Roasted and unsalted. I prefer to buy the ones in the baking section that are raw. Then, I toss them on a pan and roast them at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. Chop them up and they are ready for this recipe.
- Honey– any type will work, use your favorite.
Once you have all of the ingredients ready, combine the cranberries and pecans on a plate. Take the log out of the package and roll in the cranberries and pecans. If necessary, push them in so they stick to the cheese better. Once the log is covered on all sides, move it to a serving platter. Drizzle with honey.
Serve with crackers, pretzels, fruit, etc. A small knife will make serving the cheese log easier as well.
