approx 8 oz goat cheeseyou will need approx 2 oz per person
olive oil for brushing
1cupraw or roasted pistachios
2heaping Tbsp fresh mint leaves
dash of saltif using raw nuts
For Marcona Almond/Rosemary
Marcona almondsI like the roasted, salted, skin on variety
2heaping Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves
Set oven to 350F
Put the nuts and herbs in a mini food processor and process until the mixture is finely chopped.
Slice or form 4 round patties of cheese. Brush the patty with oil and pat the crust on the top, sides, and bottom, making sure to cover it all.
Set the patties on a lightly oiled baking sheet or dish. I recommend a rimless baking sheet for easy removal since the cheese is very delicate when hot.
Bake for about 15 minutes. I ran mine under the broiler briefly just to get them sizzling, but be careful, if they get too hot they can start to melt. If you have difficulty removing the hot cheese without it falling apart, let it cool briefly.
