We’ve all been there. You’re talking with friends and somehow you’re hosting the party tonight. Great! Now you have to put up the laundry that’s been lying on the couch, sweep the floors, find a place for random household knick knacks, oh and figure out something for everyone to eat. Stop stressing and add this recipe to your go to entertaining menu.
My blackberry and rosemary goat cheese bites are ready in no time and are oh so pretty! Instead of spreading the goat cheese out on the crackers, I serve it as a goat cheese log. Not only does it make this simple dish appear fancy, it takes less time! Let your guest do the spreading! You need all the time you can get when hosting last minute gatherings.
I love Breton’s Artisanal Sweet Potato & Grains entertaining crackers. Their tender crisp texture makes the perfect base for my goat cheese spread. You can taste the ancient grains and sweet potato pieces baked right in the crackers!
Whether prepping for a special occasion or an impromptu get-together, Breton crackers make each bite better.
