Creamy goat cheese. Tart lemon. Fresh thyme. Crusty bread.
Need I say more? I wanted to make a spread or dip with goat cheese for a get together and came across this recipe on epicurious.com. It sounded perfect, light, and can easily be made ahead of time. When recipes combine cheese and bread, I rarely need anymore convincing.
Switch up the fresh herbs and serve with baguette slices, crostini or crackers.
