You never know what surprise items you’ll find at an Aldi store. In the cheese aisle, goat cheese lovers can currently find goat logs in three fun holiday flavors that are new this season:
Cranberry Stuffing Goat Cheese
Gingerbread Goat Cheese
Eggnog Goat Cheese
For breakfast: With bagels, croissants and toast, in a cheese omelet, mixed into scrambled egg batter or sprinkled on top of the cooked eggs.
On a sandwich: These sweet cheese flavors pair with ham and turkey.
Pasta: Create a dessert pasta dish with bowties, small shells or other shape, raspberry purée, and crumbled sweet goat cheese. You can grate chocolate over the top!
With salads: Crumble atop mixed greens or a spinach salad. Add sliced or matchstick beets: They’re a beautiful pairing with any fresh goat cheese, as are pecans, pistachios, walnuts and other nuts.
For dinner: Stuff into chicken breasts and ravioli. Crumble onto asparagus and grilled vegetables. Stuff a baked potato or sweet potato.
For dessert: Serve a disc drizzled with honey, with or without nuts and fresh or dried fruit (fresh berries pair well).
Baked: In quiches, soufflés, tartlets and turnovers.
That makes for sweet goat cheese on a cheese plate or a charcuterie board, with nuts and fruits. You can serve them with graham crackers for dessert. Or, how about these recipe ideas:
