Yesterday, I shared my marinated feta and olive recipe that I prefer to pair with pinot noir. Today, I’m sharing these little goat cheese appetizers that I love with a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc or even a rose wine.
You guys know I love an easy recipe, especially an appetizer that feels well thought out but is still easy to keep in your back pocket. Most of the time, I have these ingredients in the house. I’m constantly using goat cheese in an appetizer situation so I typically have it on hand. And aren’t they pretty?! Especially when you’ve got that swirl down!
I also really love a pop of green on this dish with the pistachios! The pistachios are an important part of this appetizer recipe; they really balance the sweetness of the honey and the tanginess of the goat cheese.
For this go, I used a standard honey, but I think you could totally shake this up, depending on what wine you are serving, to have spicy honey. Wouldnt spicy honey be so good?!
For the toasts, I used Trader Joe’s brioche crackers, which hold up really nicely to a knife spreading the goat cheese. You can do a thinner cracker, for sure, but just make sure your goat cheese is very whipped so it spreads easily without much force.
How else would you change these up? I would love to hear more ideas!
Goat Cheese Toasts with Honey and Pistachios
- 6 oz whipped goat cheese, room temperature see notes
- 1/4 c pistachios
- honey, for drizzling
- 12-20 toasts/crackers, or more
- Use a batch of my whipped goat cheese, see notes for instructions, spread the cheese gently on the toasts/crackers.
