Ingredients

  • 1 lg. log plain goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, corasely ground/chopped
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • red pepper flakes to taste

Directions

  • Beat egg white in a shallow container(plastic plate, glass pie dish...)
  • Combine pecans and red pepper flakes in another shallow dish.
  • Slice goat cheese into 12 rounds. It helps to freeze the cheese for about 15-20 minutes before slicing.
  • Dip each slice into the egg and then into the peacans. Make sure to coat well, pressing nuts into cheese.
  • Arrange slices on a cookie sheet and broil 3-5 minutes on each side, until flattned and nuts smell fragrant.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to crackers, serving platter, or salad greens.
  • Notes:
  • The cheese may be prepared refrigerated for a day or two before broiling.

Notes

I came up with this recipe when I combined two broiled goat cheese goat cheese recipes. It looks really pretty arranged on top of a mesculun salad with mandarin oranges, or just on top of simple crackers as a "pick up" appetizer.
