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.

You won’t be able to eat just one…or four. Give it a try for a quick and simple appetizer for a night of entertaining.
Disclosure: While Vermont Creamery sent me the goat cheese, all opinions are 100% mine as always! Please continue to support these wonderful family businesses who make food we all love to eat.
