baked cheese on table

Are you a savoury dessert lover like us? Especially after all those Christmas meat courses, sometimes a cheese offering is the best finale. This is an easy recipe with the winning combination of goat’s cheese, walnuts and honey. Complete the French experience and serve this with a toasted baguette and sweet wine. It looks decadent on the table. Truly, this is such an easy dish to make… only ten minutes under the grill for the ultimate baked cheese experience. Plus, the walnuts bring all components together with their earthy flavour and crunchy texture. And for the all- important drizzle of honey we used Apiary Made wildflower honey, but any honey will do. For the best result treat yourself to a high-quality goat’s cheese.
