Herbed Goat Cheese Balls

I love goat cheese but add herbs? Beyond easy to make, perfect to pack up and take for a picnic, or serve up as an appetizer with a pile of crostini. Done and done.

  • 2 large logs goat cheese
  • Fresh Parsley chopped
  • Fresh Dill chopped
  • Fresh Chives finely chopped
  • Fresh Basil chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • Toasted crostini


  • Cut the logs of goat cheese into 8 pieces each. Roll them into balls and place into a medium baking dish. Sprinkle the fresh herbs and red pepper flakes on top of the cheese and add the olive oil until it covers about ½ of the goat cheese.
  • Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Rotate the cheese balls before serving so they are fully coated with the olive oil herb mixture.
  • Serve with crostini, pita, crudite etc.


Mix up your herbs. A spicy version with red pepper flakes would be amazing.
