Did You Know?…

The recipe comes from a terrific cookbook called 300 Best Casserole Recipes by Tiffany Collins.

(You will find our review of Tiffany’s cookbook here.)

Like most people Tiffany has friends and family who would turn up their nose at the mere hint of goat cheese, without ever trying it.

For those folks, Tiffany says this about her wonderful goat cheese appetizer recipe:

“If, like me, you have friends who turn up their nose at goat cheese, don’t tell them what’s in this dish until they have a taste. Then you can laugh at their expression when they realize how good goat cheese really is!”

Whether you are a die hard goat cheese fan already or not, this recipe is sure to turn you into one.

This is a wonderful diabetes recipe. Use vegetables to dip, or a few low carb crackers.

An added bonus is that it is a vegetarian appetizer recipe, and there is always someone in the group who looks for vegetarian recipes these days.
