Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Goat Cheese and Avocado Crostini

 Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Goat Cheese and Avocado Crostini  from Noble Pig
It was my birthday this past weekend and we HAD to have a few appetizers and a glass of sparkling wine before heading out to dinner. I am lucky enough to currently have a fridge full of goodies sent to me by Vermont Creamery. I had never tried their products until recently and I am so pleased with what I’ve found.

It all started in Austin this past June while I was attending Blogher Food. I sat down for breakfast and the girls from Vermont Creamery were also at my table. We chatted it up and it was interesting hearing about all the wonderful things they make in Vermont at the creamery, especially goat cheese.

I received a message recently they were sending me a package of treats and oh my goodness, there were some amazing goodies in that box.

Creamy goat cheese is new to me as I’ve only tried the ones available in the log shape. I really loved the packaging on this one, it’s perfect for tossing in the picnic basket. While this cheese came in a sweet little round container, it is also FULL of largely, chopped red peppers. I was really amazed. The flavor doesn’t disappoint with that characteristic goat cheese tang, but it’s smoother and has the peppers mixed in. It’s addicting too.

One taste and I immediately knew I wanted it with avocado, and a little salt and pepper. It was so perfect for a quick, before-dinner bite. The creaminess of the goat cheese makes this an elegant snack to serve your guests or your family.

    I buy Vermont Creamery goat cheese at Whole Foods. Great packaging! I like to stuff peppadews and mini bells with that tart creaminess.

    These look perfect for the next football game. I imagine they would be delicious with mushroom as well.
