“Our local supermarket sells this fantastic little appetizer which they make in neighboring France. Seasoned goat cheese is rolled up in bacon and baked until gooey and the bacon browned. Serve with Baguettes, or baked potatoes. Even my wife who won't come near goat cheese likes this recipe. Easy to whip up and makes a great party appetizer.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Freeze the goat cheese for five to ten minutes if too soft and gooey so you can roll it into 8 lumberjack-thumb sized logs.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and roll in the chives.
  4. Wrap with bacon so that the whole log is covered.
  5. Place in an aluminum foil boat, or a shallow glass pan (i.e. a pie tin).
  6. Bake for ten minutes, or until the bacon is golden brown and the cheese bubbly.
  7. You can do these on the grill too if you have an aluminum grill pan. Or in a pan on the stove over medium heat turning occasionally so that it is evenly browned.
