Ingredients

  • 12 ounces Goat Lady Dairy goat cheese room temperature & crumbled
  • ½ cup Wholesome Country Creamery Greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound Firsthand Food's thick-cut bacon thinly sliced or chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey plus more for garnish
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh rosemary plus more for garnish
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh thyme plus more for garnish
  • Dashes of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup Summerfield Farms Blackberry Jalapeno Jam
  • 1 bag Camino Bakery's Crostini or Bread

Instructions

WHIPPED GOAT CHEESE:

  • Allow your goat cheese to come to room temperature. It doesn’t have to be super soft, but letting it sit out for 20-30 minutes helps!
  • Place the crumbled goat cheese in a food processor or blender, add Greek yogurt, and blend. Scrap down the sides as needed. You want to blend your goat cheese until it’s smooth and creamy. If not blending to the right consistency, add more Greek yogurt. Set aside.

BACON TOPPING:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place your bacon in a single layer on top of the parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is 75% done cooking to your preference.
  • Remove the bacon from the oven and drain the fat if desired.
  • Add brown sugar, honey, rosemary, thyme, and cayenne to the baking sheet. Toss together until the bacon is evenly coated and arrange back into a single layer.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes or until the brown sugar and honey dissolve.

ASSEMBLE:

  • Scoop the whipped goat cheese into a serving bowl and smooth out. Use a spoon and dollop Summerfield Farms Blackberry Jalapeno Jam on top. Swirl into the whipped goat cheese if desired. Top with warm bacon.
  • Drizzle with extra honey, fresh rosemary, and sea salt.
  • Serve with Camino Bakery’s Crostini or Camino Bakery’s fresh bread.
  • ENJOY!

Notes

Make It Your Own: Add dates or pecans to give an extra crunch. Just chop them up and add them in when you add the brown sugar, honey, etc. to the bacon.
