This is an easy easy quick recipe. I made it for our PTA Christmas dinner. Everyone LOVED it even picky ones who thought they would NEVER try goat cheese! I orginially saw it on Food Network.

How to Make Macadamia Nut Crusted Goat Cheese


  • 1Heat 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.
  • 2Add the red pepper flakes and garlic and set aside to cool and let the flavors infuse into the oil.
  • 3Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  • 4Add 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.
  • 5Transfer to a baking sheet and let cool.
  • 6Once cool, roll the goat cheese logs in the mixture, making sure they are completely coated. Place on a serving platter.
  • 7Add 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
