Crispy Fried Goat Cheese

Food blogging has introduced me to so many new ingredients that it’s crazy to think that, this time last year, I didn’t even know about half of the foods that are now my staples! Goat cheese is one of those foods that food blogging has introduced me to. It’s definitely an acquired taste, but I love it.
Last week, after making the Bacon, Date, and Goat Cheese Galette, I was left with half a roll of goat cheese just waiting to be used. Now if there’s one thing I need to work on (other than procrastination) it would be wasting food. I don’t do it intentionally, of course, but far too many times I’ve put something half used into the fridge, forgot about it, and then discovered it a week or two later after it has spoiled. :-(
I definitely didn’t want that to happen. Especially not with goat cheese. Goat cheese is too good to waste so I decided to take action. Immediately I got on Google and started searching for some goat cheese recipes. I stumbled across this recipe for Crispy Fried Goat Cheese and right away I knew I was in love.
Crispy, crunchy breading filled with ooey gooey melted goat cheese? These are like a more sophisticated (and more delicious) version of mozzarella sticks.
And yes, they’re just as delicious as they look!
