quick & easy appetizer: endive leaves with goat cheese

If you are going to a Thanksgiving dinner or gathering this week or throwing a party and need a quick & easy appetizer, try making endive leaves with goat cheese! All you do is mix softened goat cheese, 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil, chopped fresh dill, and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Then you add a spoonful of the cheese mixture onto each endive leaf. Garnish with a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper & dill. I like the crunch from the leaves and the savory cheese. It just takes a few minutes to mix and assemble everything and you’ll have a plate of pretty leaves in no time! Advertisements
