Breaded Goat-Cheese Slices

Preparation time: 10min, Frying time: 5 min

What do you need:

6  ounces chevre cheese or 6 ounces goat cheese
3/4  cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 1/2 cups oil
(optional: 1/3 cup honey for drizzling on top in the end)

As a main dish serve with: cooked potatoes and/or salad

1. Slice the goat cheese log into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch medallions. (For easier slicing, make sure the cheese is well chilled. Tip: place it in the freezer for about 10 minutes before slicing.)

  1. 2. Now put breadcrumbs on a plate.
  2. 3. On another plate lightly beat the egg with a fork.
  3. 4. In a shallow sauté pan, heat about 1/2 inch of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. 5. Dip the cheese slices in egg, and coat with the breadcrumbs until fully covered. Due to the strong flavor of the goat cheese, you don't need any seasoning.
  5. 6. Gently place the breaded medallions into the heated olive oil in pan. Fry until golden brown on each side, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  6. 7. To serve as appetizer place medallions on a plate on top of a green salad. As a main dish you can serve it with some cooked potatoes and tomato salad as a side-dish.

  7. Optional: If you want, you can drizzle each with a little honey and garnish with the peppers.
