Don’t sweat it, though, I’m including a recipe in case you forget the ingredients or feel like you still need a little guidance.

I usually start with about five ounces of goat cheese and a little heavy cream (about a couple of tablespoons). I’ll put all of that in a blender (my Vitamix, of course!) along with a little honey and coarsely-ground black pepper. Oh, and a little salt.

I’ll go lighter on the honey if I plan on drizzling a little on the top. And I always plan to drizzle a little on the top; it looks so pretty! You can also add a few fresh thyme leaves if you like.This Whipped Goat Cheese Appetizer with Pepper and Honey is one of those recipes that you don't need a recipe for!

Everyone always loves this whipped goat cheese appetizer, but no one loves it as much as the person who makes it. And only that person will know how simple it was to make yet will still soak up all the accolades. Total win.

I have only made this whipped goat cheese appetizer in my Vitamix which gets the consistency consistently smooth (say that one five times fast, ha!). I’m sure you could mix it by hand but be certain you really get it mixed up and “whipped”. The smooth texture changes the whole ball game, I tell ya’.

What do I serve this delicious whipped goat cheese appetizer with, you ask? Usually just some good crackers (I am very partial to the ones you see in the photo) or, even better, some crostini and a tray of prosciutto & figs along with extra honey and pepper. And be sure to use a good honey! I used some local honey for mine but I’ve used Tupelo if I’ve had it on hand.

I absolutely love honey goat cheese. We get fresh goat cheese at the farmer's market and I had every intention of trying to make my own honey goat cheese last summer but never got around to it. Now I have your recipe to try...can't wait!
