Fried Goat Cheese

Goat cheese is a great for those who are lactose intolerance. I found this recipe on the evolving table web site. Both the kids I care for and parents I work for love this delicious fried goat cheese with their salads.

You Will Need:

9 oz. goat cheese log softened
½ tsp. rosemary fresh, finely chopped
½ tsp. thyme fresh, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. honey
⅓ cup flour gluten-free 1-to-1*
¼ tsp. salt to taste
⅛ tsp. black pepper to taste
1 egg
1 Tbsp. milk
⅔ cup Panko breadcrumbs gluten-free*
½ tsp. garlic powder
2-3 Tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil*

What to Do:

1. In a medium-sized bowl mix together the goat cheese, herbs, and honey.

2. Place goat cheese in the center of a piece of wax or parchment paper and roll into a log.

3. Freeze goat cheese log for 20-30 minutes or refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

4. Once goat cheese has hardened, cut cheese with a sharp knife into 8 medallions.

5. In three separate shallow bowls add the flour, salt, and pepper to the first bowl, whisk the egg and milk in the second bowl, and whisk together the Panko breadcrumbs and garlic powder.

6. Dip each goat cheese medallion in the flour mixture, dredge in the egg wash, and then coat completely in the Panko breadcrumbs. Repeat with remaining goat cheese slices.

7. In a large skillet over medium heat add 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Let oil heat up completely and then add 4 goat cheese slices. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until the coating becomes lightly golden. Remove from skillet and place on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining oil and goat cheese slices.

8. Serve fried goat cheese with a Fall Harvest Salad or as an appetizer with additional honey and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
