Do you need a Gr8 make ahead appetizer to take to a party? Or to serve at your own party? This Fig Walnut Goat Cheese Terrine is the answer to all your appetizer questions. It’s almost like having a cheese platter in a bowl! Make it a day ahead of time. When party time is close, turn it onto a platter, add the crackers and you’ve got a pretty and tasty appetizer.
I made this up for Kyle and Joel’s recent Gr8 Autumn Dinner and it was a hit! People who don’t generally like goat cheese like this because of all the supporting flavors. The figs and honey add a little sweetness to balance the goat cheese, walnuts and olives. I’d say it’s perfect, but that would be bragging!
AND it’s healthy! Figs are high in essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. And walnuts are shaped like a brain for a reason…they are good for our memory! Goat cheese is a good source of protein, healthy fats, and probiotics.
Add this recipe to your repertoire for all your holiday entertaining. It will check off a big box on your “to-do” list!
