Last month while at our company meeting at a Hilton hotel, this appetizer was one of a few served during our cocktail hour. And it was DELICIOUS.
When I got home, I made more for myself as a mini meal one night. How easy are these – three ingredients, no cooking, and super low maintenance when it comes to serving…they can sit out (safely) for a bit, and don’t need to be overly warm or cool to be enjoyed. Plus, I love anything that indulges both sides of any food spectrum – these are both salty and sweet, creamy and crunchy, all in one delectable bite!
To make these (did I mention? SUPER easy!) just roll goat cheese into balls, roll the balls in crushed pistachios, and top with a dollop of a sweet jelly. I used some Georgia Peach jelly still in our pantry from our trip south,Â but I believe the hotel used an apricot flavor. Either way, the unexpected bit of sweet is awesome. If you don’t have a jelly on hand, you could throw some craisins in with the pistachios and roll the cheese in the mixture of both to get the fruit aspect.
Bon appetit – and invite some friends over for an excuse to serve these!
