You can file this one under “simple ideas that make me ridiculously happy.” I love goat cheese, but it’s not the prettiest cheese for a cheese board. So this past weekend I tried covering three logs of goat cheese with random toppings and they came out REALLY cute!
The toppings are toasted coconut, wasabi peas, and unsweetened chocolate chips (to which I also drizzled honey). Sweet and savory!
Some other toppings I want to try are pan-fried rosemary, salted caramel and diced peaches. mmmmm.
Next time you’re making a cheese board, try adding some goat cheese logs with fun toppings! What flavors would you choose?

These are so cute and fun! I can’t wait to try them!
Oh, nice! I can get this delicious small farm goat cheese in South Korea… I will be ordering some just to try these out!!
Yum! I would have never thought of doing this. I also love goat cheese, but I agree that it’s not the prettiest cheese to put on a cheese plate all by itself. I love the idea of experimenting with different toppings.
I make a goat cheese ball with pesto and sundried tomatoes, so good! I would never think of wasabi peas but the little green balls look so cute!!
We like to coat the log in sunflower seeds, drizzle with honey, and garnish with fresh blackberries.
Definitely something to try on a Friday night! x
ahhh i want this NOW. never would have thought to put chocolate on goat cheese but i trust you 😉
Goat cheese logs are so good!!
Great idea for dressing up Goat cheese. A whole list of try-outs comes to mind with this recipe of inspiration. Can’t wait to try out for our next social get together. Stay beautiful!
This is one of my favorite go-to apps! My personal favorites are: bacon & chive, dried cranberry & pecan, and dried apricot & pistacios! =) I’ve made them into little bite-sized balls….so good.
Oh god these logs looked really mouth watering, amazing recipe!
Goat cheese is also fabulous with extra virgin olive oil! I just put a log on a small oblong dish, let it go to room temp, drizzle the oil over it, and serve with rosemary olive oil bread or crackers. Now I’m going to have to try your take on it!

OH my gosh they look so yummy!!! Will definitely try this next time I make a cheese board.
A note of interest: As vegetarians we may choose goats cheese as an alternative to meat. However, due to the growth of the goats cheese industry more goats are being bred. The females are kept, but unfortunately, as goat is not a popular meat for eating, the males are destroyed. Goats cheese may not be as animal friendly as we think! eek!
Wow! This is SO COOL and seems SO DELICIOUS! I would make it right now for breakfast!
Need to try. This week!
Thank you! 🙂
These look like so much fun! Would you ever consider sprinkling some fresh pepper or other spices on the goat cheese?
Oh this is just perfect for a picnic. I hope I’ll find wasabi peas here in Germany.
Lots of love,

I simply love goat cheese, and your flavor combinations sound so interesting that I have to try them! Thanks for sharing!
These look lovely! I personally don’t love goats cheese, but we buy a roll that’s smothered in garlic when we visit our farmers market and it’s delicious! I’ll have to try some of these!

The perfect light lunch option for hot summer days! I live for cheese & crackers-this takes my love to a whole new level. Thanks for the idea Elsie!
