Prep:

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

2 1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper
2 tsp
garlic
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
macadamia nuts, chopped
1/2 c
panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp
pepper ( preferably white, but dont buy it just for this)
2 dash(es)
salt
2
8 ounce logs of goat cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium-low heat until the oil is hot but be careful not to burn. Remove from the heat.
2
Add the red pepper flakes and garlic and set aside to cool and let the flavors infuse into the oil.
3
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
4
Add the macadamia nuts, panko, pepper, and a generous pinch of salt. Let cook until the nuts and breadcrumbs have absorbed all the butter and are lightly toasted, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
5
Transfer to a baking sheet and let cool.
6
Once cool, roll the goat cheese logs in the mixture, making sure they are completely coated. Place on a serving platter.
7
Add the Melba toasts to a large bowl. Drizzle the garlic-pepper oil over the toasts and toss so all the toasts are coated with the oil. Serve on the side with the goat cheese logs
