|Goat Cheese & Walnut Truffles|
A great, elegant appetiser.. Quick to make and perfect for a pre-dinner drink , it will impress your guests. You can coat the truffles with all sort of spices or nuts (hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachio, paprika... to name just a few).
In this recipe I have used sesame and poppy seeds, as I like the contrast of the colors.
- Goat Cheese, 150g
- Chopped walnuts, 80g
- Salt and pepper
For the coating
- Sesame and poppy seeds, or,
- Chopped Walnuts
- Chopped hazelnuts
- Chopped pistachios
- or anything you like!
Prepare the coating and set aside.
In a bowl whisk together the goat cheese, the walnuts, salt and pepper. Chill the mixture for about an hour. Take a small spoonful of the goat cheese mixture and shape it into truffles.
Roll the cheese balls in sesame and poppy seeds (or in the coating of your choice) and place on a serving plate.
If you think the goat cheese is too strong, you can mix it with some plain soft cheese.
