I hope that you are as obsessed with goat cheese as I am because this Goat Cheese and Apricot Spread is effortless and delectable.  When it comes to dips and charcuterie boards, goat cheese is a staple, but this recipe calls for two unique ingredients: apricot and peppercorn.

The lowdown on the inspiration behind Goat Cheese Apricot Spread.

This app was created after a rowdy trip to Portugal with my fiancé & friends where we visited AdegaMãe Winery.  Not only did we get to try the wines – plus a vintage bottle from their first label – we were treated to a full-on spread, including a peppered-rim goat cheese.  It was UNREAL good! See the original here, where I added some orange marmalade for a spicy and fruity combo.

Side note: I have ten other European inspiring eats that you must read on this previous post!

This Goat Cheese Apricot Spread take 8 minutes to put together and requires only 3 ingredients. Here is how they come together:

  1. Lay out goat cheese log on serving dish (I know, I know, I can’t get over the term, “log” either!)
  2. Smooth Apricot marmalade to cover the goat cheese. You don’t have to perfect here, because it will be gone in no time.
  3. Grind peppercorn into a strainer, hold over dish and gently hit the edge so the pepper falls on and around the goat cheese.

In summary.

The Jolly Hostess twist this week takes a peppered goat cheese from a wanderlust trip to Portugal and adds an apricot marmalade & peppercorn.  These two ingredients are topped directly on a goat cheese log.  It will look like a gorgeous masterpiece and for my busy hostesses, Goat Cheese Apricot Spread takes almost no time at all to put together.  And will be gone in seconds!
