Lemon Rosemary Whipped Goat Cheese is an impressive appetizer made with only a few simple ingredients! Serve it with crackers or fresh veggies for a delicious, refreshing and flavorful snack!
Lemon and rosemary are two ingredients that I always have available in my kitchen. Fresh rosemary grows in my herb garden year round and lemons are available from my lemon tree during the winter months. Even when lemons are not in season, I always have fresh lemons stored in my fridge. A few simple seasonings are incredibly helpful when I am trying to make something for dinner at the last minute or need a quick and easy appetizer for a Friday night wine and cheese tasting with friends.
My Sundried Tomato Whipped Goat Cheese is popular for good reasons. Whipped goat cheese combined with a little bit of cream cheese and a few simple flavors creates an appetizer or snack that is ready in less than five minutes. The lemon zest adds a hint of fresh citrus flavor that pairs well with the rosemary.
What ingredients do you always have available in your kitchen? What are some of your favorite last minute appetizers or snacks? I am always looking for easy and impressive recipes and always want to hear your comments or suggestions.

i’ve come to this yummy recipe because of the GOAT cheese, and i am hoping i can omit the cream chz as i have high maintenance family members that are cows’ milk intolerant! can’t give stars since i have yet to make it & taste it…
You can omit the cream cheese. It might not be as creamy but the recipe will taste just as good. Enjoy!
This is amazing piped into roasted mini bell peppers. Delicious!
This looks amazing! I’m in New York at the moment and would LOVE this slathered over a freshly toasted bagel!
