Fried Goats Cheese

The minute I saw the post on Fried Goats Cheese on Rachel Schultz, I had to make it. Within the hour I had organized my dad to bring back the cheese and had the breadcrumbs all ready. Instead of the soft goats cheese I wanted to try it with the melty-stuff but he couldn't find any so we ended up with rounds of goats cheese like this:

I didn't have any parsley so I replaced that with sage, and I didn't use flour - my modified recipe is below.

Fried Goats Cheese
Serves 4
4 rounds goat cheese
1 cup breadcrumbs
1.5 tsp sage
1.5 tsp thyme
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1 egg
Salt & pepper
Olive oil

Mix breadcrumbs, sage, thyme, garlic powder and S&P in a bowl. Crack the egg in a separate bowl and whisk. Dip the round of goats cheese in the egg, fully covering it, then dip in the breadcrumbs, pushing down on the mix to cover it completely.

Put a layer of olive oil in a pan and get to medium high/high depending on how thick your goats cheese is. Cook for 1-2 mins on each side (again, depending on thickness of cheese). Mine took two minutes on each side on a medium high heat.

Remove when golden brown. Great served with salad topped with olive oil and good quality balsamic vinegar. Delicious!!
