Goat Cheese Skewers

Goat Cheese Skewers | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

We were back in St. Louis this past weekend and there was a family get together at Mike’s parent’s house. His aunt brought these as an appetizer. They were delicious and elegant, so I felt I should share.

Since I didn’t actually make these I don’t have an exact recipe but this should be close enough.

Goat Cheese Skewers

  • 1 10-ounce log of goat cheese
  • 1 8-ounce package of almonds, finely chopped
  • 20 leaves of fresh basil
  • 20 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 20 wooden skewers
  1. Slice the goat cheese in half lengthwise, then slice each half into 10 even sections.
  2. Dip a piece goat cheese into the almonds, then roll into a ball. Then roll the ball through the almonds to coat.
  3. Place a piece of basil on top of a tomato. Put an almond covered ball of cheese on top and skewer, making sure that the tomato and basil are skewered on each side.
  4. Repeat with the remaining pieces of goat cheese.
  5. Chill until ready to serve.

Makes 20

Mike’s aunt said to use sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil. You want them to be pliable. Make sure to drain well before you start skewering. She also noted that she had leftover almonds. I guess you get an almond snack while you make them.
