Easy & Elegant Goat Cheese Appetizer from

Want to hit a 'home run' with your guests? Try this Goat Cheese with Thyme, Peppercorns and Garlic/Lemon Oil appetizer recipe from So easy and looks very 'swishy'. The color combination is wonderful: white, pink/red, green and yellow. You can even take an extra minute to mold the ball into a theme shape (ie: heart shaped for Valentine's Day, or Christmas tree, etc.) Be prepared to hand out the recipe at the end of the night.

The posted reviews for this recipe are very helpful. I like to make a little extra garlic/lemon oil and add it to the cheese (not to much because the oil will make the cheese become runny) and then pour the rest of the oil over the ball in advance of the event to allow the flavors to blend in the fridge.

To form the ball, I place a piece of plastic wrap on the inside of a cafe au lait bowl and push the cheese into it. I then lift away the bowl, place the cheese ball on a platter and peel away the wrap - very easy and you don't get your fingers messy.

~ Enjoy
