RECIPE: Goat Cheese and Scallion Roll

Goat Cheese and Scallion Roll

Goat Cheese and Herb Cheese Ball/Roll

3 tablespoons butter, softened
8 oz. Goat Cheese, softened
4 oz. Cream cheese, softened
3 shallots, finely chopped
2 tablespoons basil, finely minced
pepper
salt

Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. With a spatula, mix all the ingredients together until completely combined. Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap. Scoop the cheese mixture into your hands and pat it back and forth to make a shape that resembles a ball. Wrap completely in plastic and roll slightly into a cylinder/log shape. Place on a plate in the refrigerator. After about 1 hour, when the cheese has firmed up a bit, take roll/log out and while still in the plastic wrap roll it on the counter so that it makes a nicer roll. Place back in fridge for at least 30 minutes. Can be made and kept in the refrigerator up to two days in advance. Serve with fruit and crackers.

I like everything about this, especially the goat cheese, one of my very favorites. Sounds just delish.
