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.

  1. 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.

  2. Yum and Yum. Love that the garlic is in the cracker instead of the cheese. Making and pinning.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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...

  6. This sounds fabulous! I can't believe that I have never had whipped cheese before! I so need to, and now!

  7. next to feta, goat cheese is one of my faves. I'll be whipping some up soon. Thanks for the recipe.
