I don’t know about you, but I love to serve up little appetizers before a dinner with friends and family. This way if I am running late, or some of my guests are running late I can offer them something until everyone is ready to eat dinner. This is the perfect party recipe, because you can make the cheese spread ahead of time, actually you could make it a couple of days ahead, and simply make up your canapes when you are ready to serve. Now these could be also be topped with a sun dried tomato, or maybe even a spiced nut, or some spicy picked vegetables. You have lots of options here.

Goat Cheese Canapes

Goat Cheese Canapes are so easy to prepare, and this recipe is perfect for your next cocktail party.


  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • toasted baguette slices


Allow both goat cheese and cream cheese to reach room temperature, this way it is easy to mix these two together. In a small sized bowl blend the two cheese together, and then add seasonings. Store cheese mixture in a air tight container, and let flavors marry for at least 1 hour before serving. To create the canape, simply spread about 1/2 tablespoon of goat cheese spread onto the toast, and just before serving spoon a small amount of pesto onto these appetizers.

    I love goat cheese in any form! Hot, cold, warm. I recently found a honey goat cheese. Oh man! Cheese is sooooo good and a tart goat cheese is wonderful.
