For a cheese plate appetizer dish that is worthy of even the highest caliber dinner party guests, check out this easy appetizer recipe that can be ready in mere minutes.

When it comes to entertaining it can seem like a nightmare to try and find recipes that everyone will love. Between food allergies, the cost of food, and making it actually taste good, having people over for lunch or dinner can be a bit nerve racking. However, there are certain recipes that are absolutely fool proof and provide a wonderful appetizer experience with little effort involved. Case in point, the Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Plate.

The Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Plate is simple to put together and requires just a few ingredients. With so many wonderful goat cheeses available at the super market for a reasonable price, this plate is pretty cost effective as well. This particular dish gives the guests options to indulge in the saltiness of goat cheese and roasted garlic, or taste the sweetness of the honey, walnuts, goat cheese and French bread. Here's how to make the Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Plate appetizer dish.

Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Plate Appetizer

Things You'll Need

Head of garlic

Package of goat cheese (8 ounces)

Olive oil

French bread



How to Roast Garlic

The only 'cooking' involved in this appetizer plate is the actual roasting of the garlic. It is really quite simply, just follow these steps.

1.Pre-heat the oven to '00 degrees

2.Peel away the outer loose' skin of the garlic bulb

3.Slice the top quarter of the garlic bulb off exposing some of the garlic cloves.

4.Place the garlic in a small roasting dish.

5.Spoon or drizzle olive oil on top of the exposed garlic cloves.

6.Cover the garlic with tin foil.

7.Roast for 30 to 35 minutes.

8.Once browned, remove and let cool slightly.

One tip is to roast several heads of garlic at once and set the extra aside to enjoy with meals during the week!

Assembling the Roasted Garlic Goat Cheese Plate

1.Slice the french bread into small rounds and place in a basket to serve.

2.Place honey in a small serving dish with a serving spoon.

3.Sprinkle a mount of walnuts onto one area of the place.

4.Place the roasted garlic in the middle of the plate with a small serving fork so that guests may remove the roasted garlic from each clove.

5.Add the goat cheese log to the plate and serve to the guests.

(Note that the goat cheese goes nicely with the honey or garlic, but not both!)

Good luck.
