Recipe Sunday: Baked Canterbury Soft Goat Cheese

June 8, 2015

Given that we make about 5000 pounds of Canterbury soft goat cheese a year here at Edgwick Farm, we always have some on hand and it is our go-to cheese for quick appetizers.  This recipe for baked goat cheese is a stand-by in our kitchen and we can promise you, it will be consumed quickly!

Canterbury soft goat cheese is truly a versatile cheese. Just putting out a medallion of unadorned soft goat cheese with some crackers is usually enough to make everyone happy. However, why stop there when with a little effort you can create something truly memorable. Baking it with some goodies on top from your well-stocked pantry kicks it up a notch. The great thing about this dish is that it can be prepared quickly and with only a moment’s notice. So take some advice from us at Edgwick Farm: keep a little Canterbury soft goat cheese on hand and along with a few other staples like olives, artichoke hearts, and capers you will be good to go.

Our ‘go-to’ basic baked goat cheese consists of olives, artichoke hearts, capers, and garlic, but the sky is the limit when coming up with other flavor combinations. Look at what bits of this and that are left in your refrigerator and get creative! Almost anything would be good baked on top of some soft goat cheese!
