Baked Goat Cheese Spread
This is the perfect appetizer of baked goat cheese spread with a bit of spice from chili oil and roasted tomatoes use with crackers or toast or eat straight from a spoon.
Servings: 1 cup
- 6 to 8 ounces goat cheese
- 5 to 7 cherry tomatoes
- 1 to 2 tsp chili pepper oil
To make chili oil - in a saucepan add 1/4 cup olive oil and 1 to 2 tsp dried red pepper flakes
Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from stove top to cool.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spread goat cheese in a 1 cup ovenproof bowl with at least an 1 inch lip
Quarter cherry tomatoes, spread all over goat cheese
Drizzle 1 to 2 tsp chili pepper oil over tomatoes and goat cheese
Bake for 15 minutes
Turn oven to broil and broil for 3 to 5 minutes
Serve warm over a good bread (I used sourdough slices) toasted with a little butter
