Herbed Goat Cheese

one 7 - 9 oz log of chevre (fresh goat cheese)

2 tsp fresh chives, chopped
2 tsp fresh Italian parsley (flat leaf), chopped
2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped (or fresh basil or other herbs of choice!)
freshly ground pepper

Combine herbs & pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Place a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap on the counter & spread the herb blend evenly. Roll the cheese in the mixture to coat; don't press too hard, you want to retain the shape of the log.

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap & refrigerate until needed.

Serve with fine crackers, small slices of baguette or pita wedges.

The herbed cheese can also be added to pizza or pasta. Or serve a piece in the center of a bowl of warm Roasted Red Pepper & Eggplant Spread for a delicious treat!

Does this ever sound good - as do all your recipes. Jinx, I am so GLAD you've done this blog. It is a treasure trove for me. I was thinking the chocolate bread would be a fun gift for all the girls in my office for Christmas - a loaf of the bread and alittle jar of homemade raspberry jam.

It is a perfect gift pair! I did it one year, but paired different loaves with different spreads for my three sisters...who are all very different in their tastes!
