I craved that goat cheese for days afterward, so one night when I was on my own for dinner I decided to forgo making a meal and just made these as a late-night snack. Amazing!
Here's the recipe:
(Adapted from Sur la Table)
3-4 oz goat cheese, in 4 slices
3/4 cup panko (I used homemade) breadcrumbs
1/2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
1/2 tbsp rosemary, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
extra virgin olive oil
Roll the goat cheese slices into balls, then roll in the herbs. Dip into the beaten egg, then cover with bread crumbs. Flatten very slightly with the palm of your hand. Set in the freezer for about a half hour.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet (I used a small pie pan) with parchment paper or silpat, then brush both sides of the goat cheese with EVOO. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
