How to Make Toasted Pecan Goat Cheese balls

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll goat cheese into 1-inch balls and set aside
  2. Toast your pecans in a frying pan on med-low heat with 1 tsp of butter and the cinnamon and nutmeg for a few minutes stirring frequently to avoid scorching your pecans
  3. Let pecan mixture cool
  4. Roll your goat cheese balls in the pecans to cover/coat completely
  5. Put each covered goat cheese ball in a mini muffin tray and bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Serve the warmed goat cheese balls over a fresh bed of greens with thinly sliced pears or peaches if desired. A vinegrette dressing of your choice works well with this salad!
    This also makes a wonderful appetizer served with apricot or peach preserves and bread at your wine tasting party!
