Quick and Easy Goat Cheese Appetizer

Happy holidays, everyone!! I hope you're having an amazing Christmas Eve. I'm back today with the quick and easy goat cheese appetizer recipe that I learned from my friend. She's an amazing cook and I've made this recipe so many times (as you may have seen in my vlogs). A few of you were curious about it, so here it is.


• A small log of goat cheese--approximately 140-150 grams
• Half a large red onion, chopped into thin slices--approximately 150 grams (you can use any type of onion except for the sweet ones)
• 1 pint of cherry tomatoes--I've been using a bit more to up our veggie intake, but approximately 250-450 grams would work for this recipe (cherry tomatoes are better for this dish, but you can also use grape tomatoes)
• 1 tbsp of cooking oil
• Salt and pepper to taste (I usually only use a pinch of salt when sweating the onions)
• Balsamic reduction to taste
• Artisan crisps

Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a light meal.


1. Spread the goat cheese on a large plate in a thin layer.
2. Sweat the onions in the oil and add a pinch of salt.
3. Add cherry tomatoes and cook until softened.
4. Season with salt and pepper (optional).
5. Add the onion and tomato mixture on top of the prepared plate containing the goat cheese.
6. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
7. Serve with artisan crisps.

Quick, easy, delicious, and healthy! Please let me know if you end up making this. Thank you to my friend, M, for sharing this recipe with me!
