One of my favorite appetizers is also the fastest and easiest to make. (Ok, so maybe I shouldn't be telling the world this fact!) It's simply a log of goat cheese rolled in a mixture of peppercorns, fresh and dried herbs. We serve it with crostini, an assortment of olives and fresh grape tomatoes.
1 - 6 ounce roll of goat cheese (chevre)
2 teaspoons of cracked peppercorns
1 teaspoon of lemon pepper blend
2 teaspoons chopped chives or finely chopped fresh basil
Mix the herbs and pepper together and spread out over a cutting board or flat plate
Roll the goat cheese in the herb mixture until it is coated on 3 sides. Place the uncoated side face down on a serving plate. Serve with crackers or crostini.
Enough for 6 to 8 people as an appetizer
