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.

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp
    crushed red pepper
  • 2 tsp
  • 2 Tbsp
  • 1/2 c
    macadamia nuts, chopped

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
