With Thanksgiving a couple of weeks away, it is officially Holiday Season ... aka appetizer season.
It's the only time of year where everyone can go crazy over apps, snacks, and goodies. It's pretty much my favorite thing ever, minus the 10 extra pounds I am left with on January 2nd. But no regrets, all those appetizers are definitely worth is.
When it comes to holiday entertaining, I always stick to super easy appetizers - nothing fussy, nothing with a thousand steps, nothing that I need 5 days to prepare, and most definitely nothing that is difficult to transport to someone else's house.
When it comes to selecting goat cheese, I always choose Joan of Arc® goat cheeses. They are pleasantly fresh with a slightly tangy flavor that adds the perfect pop of flavor to any dish.
Honey Thyme Whipped Goat Cheese Bites with Pomegranate
- 8 oz goat cheese room temperature ( I used Joan of Arc)
- 4 tbsp cream
- 2 tsp fresh thyme
- 16 crackers
- seeds from 1 pomegranate
- 3-4 tbsp honey for drizzle
- Whip goat cheese with an electric mixer until softened, about 1 minute. Add cream and whip on medium speed, until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Stir in thyme.
- Lay out the crackers and top each with a spoonful. Add pomegranate arils and drizzle with honey.
