Let's go ahead and get this out of the way - I love goat cheese. If you tracked our Costco purchases for a year it would primarily consist of the 2 for $6.99 logs of goat-cheese, and chocolate covered almonds. Seriously that is all we buy from there.
The best is that EC dislikes goat cheese and never asks for a bite, essentially I never ever have to share. Which is great because I put it on everything and anything that I feel it could enrich. Having an omelet, add goat-cheese. Eating a lean cuisine just throw in some goat cheese. Pasta - there's always a sauce that could use a little goat cheese. Seriously if it might go with it I'll try it.
I'm not sure it's true and I don't want to research it and run the risk of seeing something I can't unsee and falling out of love with goat-cheese, but I feel like it's a healthier cheese. It's not extremely mass produced and it retains the creamy texture and tangy flavor profile. No one tell me if it isn't healthier but in my mind it's a staple for a balanced healthy diet.
For tonight's dinner I whipped up some toast. Sounds fancy right? It's actually a very simple recipe.
- Take half a medium avocado and crush in a bowl, after it's consistency is softer mash in onion powder/garlic powder/salt/ and pepper to taste.
- Use 2 strips of real bacon (because Turkey bacon just doesn't compare) and cook until extremely crispy.
- While that is cooking toast bread and spread over the avocado mixture.
- Top the Avocado with crumbles of Goat-Cheese and once bacon has cooled slightly top the goat-cheese with the Bacon.
My current New Year's goal that I'm working on is trying to eat local and shop local. I'm hoping to find a farm near Atlanta where I can buy eggs/cheese/butter/ and produce. Let me know if you hear of any good ones!
