This whipped goat cheese is topped with crispy sage for a simple but incredibly delicious appetizer! Use it as a spread on your charcuterie board or serve it with veggies and crackers for a tasty snack.
I’ve been on a bit of a goat cheese kick and after making goat cheese flatbread and goat cheese pasta, I started thinking about other ways I could use this tasty cheese. Since I love whipped ricotta, I thought I’d give whipped goat cheese a try. It was so delicious and the crispy sage took it to the next level! If you don’t have any fresh sage, don’t worry. This whipped goat cheese is still flavorful and tasty without the sage.
Goat cheese– I recommend using a log of goat cheese instead of crumbled goat cheese. Crumbled cheese has anti-caking agents that can make the dip less creamy. Plain goat cheese works great in this recipe, but you could use herbed goat cheese for a different flavor.
Cream cheese– A little cream cheese is the secret to this dip. It makes the goat cheese extra creamy. It also tames the tanginess of the goat cheese.
Garlic powder– A pinch of garlic powder enhances the flavor, without adding the bite that raw garlic can have.
Lemon juice– This brightens the overall flavor of the dip.
Sage– The crispy sage is optional, but I think it adds a lovely depth of flavor to the recipe.
Butter– A bit of butter helps bring out the flavor of the sage and makes it nice and crispy as a topping.
