Easy Cheesy!

Its been a while since I had time to cook properly. I have been so busy with essay writing, report writing and  Jilly Beans projects that food has been a strictly quick and practical. Although I’m still quite busy, I’m on holiday now for a fortnight (hurrah!) and so I am beginning to have time to try out some new recipes. I’m starting with something that was quick and easy but at the same time was super-yummy. I’m a huge fan of cheese – all kinds. Goat’s cheese is a firm favourite and so I thought I would try out these cute little parcels…

Goat's Cheese Parcel

 

The recipe is very easy and took me hardly any time at all. The end result was delicious!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 goat’s cheese log
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • olive oil

Method:

  • Chill your cheese in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. This will make it easier to cut (goat’s cheese can be quite sticky)
  • Mix the breadcrumbs with the other dry ingredients, but NOT the flour, in a bowl.
  • Put the eggs in a second bowl and beat them.
  • Put the flower in a third bowl.
  • Set aside a plate or a tray to lay out your cheese parcels on after you coat them.
  • Line everything up on the counter – flour bowl first, the beaten eggs next then the breadcrumb mix followed by the tray or plate.
  • Take the cheese out of the freezer and cut into slices with a sharp knife. (You can heat the blade of the knife in a cup of boiling water to help cut the cheese more neatly)
  • Dip the cheese into the flour and coat evenly (not too much)
  • Repeat with the egg then the breadcrumbs.
  • Lay the parcels out on the tray or plate.
  • Once you have coated all the cheese heat the olive oil in a frying pan (you only need a couple of table spoons)
  • Gently fry the parcels on both sides until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Serve immediately with a side salad – yum!!

This makes a really lovely starter or a light lunch. Why not give it a try?
