How To Make macadamia nut crusted goat cheese

  • 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
