My love of Whipped Goat Cheese runs deep! It’s one of those snacks that I absolutely love!! Slather it all over some freshly toasted bread and call it a day.
I’ve been making whipped goat cheese for a while and using it for my go-to appetizer on ALL THE WEEKENDS!! In fact last weekend it made an appearance on my bruschetta bar spread and was the first thing to disappear!
It’s easy to whip up ahead of time and then serve it up with some crostini or crackers and call it a day. I use fresh thyme, red pepper flakes, garlic and lemon to add extra flavor – but you could add some number of seasonings to give it whatever vibe you want! Add extra cracked black pepper for more kick, maybe some oregano and basil if you want it more Mediterranean, skies the limit!
It stores well in the fridge for about 4-5 days so you can easily prep the Whipped Goat Cheese ahead of time and use it as needed. Add it to sandwiches, toss some of it into a pasta with a little water to smooth it out, or dip some veggies in it for extra crunch! You’re gonna love it.

oh for the love gaby! Jeez- I would spread this on my body if I could get away with it 🙂
What a yummy snack!
next to feta, goat cheese is one of my faves. I’ll be whipping some up soon. Thanks for the recipe.
This sounds fabulous! I can’t believe that I have never had whipped cheese before! I so need to, and now!
I’m right there with you on the goat cheese!
I’m all about goat cheese, and this looks like a fantastic way to enjoy an entire bowl of it. I mean, I’ll totally share it, if I haaaaave to…
One of my favorite appetizers!
Why have I never tried either of these things???? Must remedy immediately!!
I have a bit of a love affair with goat chese. Ever since I had a 3 greens and goat cheese lasagne, I have been hooked. Can’t wait to try this. Pinned and shared 🙂
The little toasts are so cute, but I’m afraid I’d just have to attack that bowl with a spoon. I love goat cheese madly, and I’ve whipped feta, but never goat cheese. It’s craziness. I. Must. Make. This.
Yum and Yum. Love that the garlic is in the cracker instead of the cheese. Making and pinning.
Oh yum. It’s just you and me splitting this, right?
Is it socially acceptable to just shove your whole face in the bowl? Because that would be what I’d do. Looks amazing Gaby. The little toasts are too cute for words too.
Oh yum! This sounds like the perfect dip!
What a great idea. I’ll have to look for the Twistos.
is it weird that I want to both eat this and swim in it? Yum, great recipe, I love me some goat cheese, like woah!
Oh yah!! I could eat this all day! Sooo good 🙂
Whipped goat cheese must taste like heaven in a bowl!
I bet this is so light and delicious!!! Love goat cheese!
I wasn’t hungry until I saw this! Looks amazing and love how easy it looks to. Gotta try it!
I have always loved goat cheese, can’t wait to make it…I always serve it with cranberry chutney during the holidays.
Easy. Tasty. Brilliant.
Yes! It’s amazing how just a few simple additions can make goat cheese THAT much better! Delicious!
Oh man. I bet this is so good on pretty much everything!
dying! that whipped goat cheese…. my fav.
I’d legit put this on eveeeerything.
Seriously!!!! ON.THE.BUMPER.OF.A.CAR. and everything in between is what this would be fabulous on. Served it with my mushroom soup for dinner…YUM-EH!
This is very tasty! I’m planning on smearing it onto a holiday crescent roll veggie tree! It was super difficult to whip, I tried with my cream cheese and goat cheese straight from the fridge, might be easier if theses are left out to soften a bit?
