This goat cheese recipe comes from Robyn of Robyn’s Online World.
My friend Karen (who I met thru Twitter) had a local BBQ tweetup last summer and served this and it was a hit with everyone! She modified the original recipe she had and so this is the way I’ve made it. By the way, if you have picky people who turn their nose up at goat cheese, just don’t tell them what it is until after they eat it – they will love it!
