Easy Goat Cheese Sauce
My family and I eat lots of goat cheese sauce! Pretty much any time we go out and enjoy chips and salsa, we enjoy goat cheese sauce as well. I hadn’t gotten to experience (and remember) it until I was almost 20! I had never really had the urge to try it in my younger years. I’m sure it had nothing to do with me being even more of a picky eater than I am now!
Let me tell you something, though. If you have never had the luxury of enjoying it, please make some right now. Go to the store, get the supplies, and make some! As long as you can tolerate dairy, of course. You will probably crave it forever and ever after your first time!
Where Do I Begin?
Now that our saliva is full throttle, let’s consider our ingredients. Our goat cheese sauce could become many different things, such as a dip, burrito dressing, etc. Many people enjoy it over their rice, their veggies, and even their meats.
- Soft goat cheese
- Cream OR
- Vegetable stock
- Garlic clove
- Salt & pepper
Use just a splash more stock (or cream) than goat cheese. For a small serving, I wouldn’t use more than two tablespoons each of the other seasonings.
I like a decent bit of pepper with my goat cheese if I’m using it for anything other than a dip. I also love the combination of goat cheese sauce with salsa verde, specifically inside my chicken enchilada casserole! I think I should make homemade tortilla chips sometime very soon as well as this homemade goat cheese sauce! Have I reminded y’all lately how grateful I am for the Internet and everything it holds?
- Turn the cheese into wine. Not red wine or anything, but heat a pot or saucepan over moderate heat.
- Melt the cheese in an appropriate saucepan with your garlic, seasonings, and stock.
- If you have a small amount, it shouldn’t take very long to finish cooking. If you have quite a bit, you could cook it for quite a while for a more savory flavor and supreme thickness. (Which is perfect for dipping!)
The key here is to buy quality goat cheese, though. My mom and I tried cooking it several because it was “that easy.” We “succeeded” but something was off. We weren’t necessarily searching for the best quality stuff, though. Our taste buds weren’t as mature as they are now! You really get what you pay for when it comes to cheese and it’s definitely worth the extra dollar for better quality cheese!
