I guess by now you have figured out I’m into goat cheese and balsamic vinegar. I will try them in every variety I can! So, yes, here’s another goat cheese and balsamic recipe.
This is another super simple recipe. This took about 10 minutes, tops, to pull together. It’s a great snack or appetizer.
Start by making a blueberry balsamic reduction. Although blueberries are in season, I actually prefer to use frozen. They release so much more liquid when they are heated. So, add frozen berries to pan with honey and balsamic. Cook over low heat until reduced. Mine went pretty quick, about 8 minutes. remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
For the goat cheese base, simply mix cream cheese and goat cheese. I like to mix it on high speed for at least 3-5 minutes. I like it be kind of fluffy.
Now to assemble, smear cheese mixture on the bottom of a tray. Top with the blueberries. We used a wheat cracker, but you could also use any type of bread you prefer, thinly sliced.
Now, sit back and enjoy! You deserve it.
