With January in full swing and the endless barrage of meetings, dinners, chores, etc. who has time to plan each and every meal?
I have often shared this recipe – it remains a tried and true (and freezer friendly) go-to dinner staple, thanks to my amazing friend Jules – melba-crusted goat cheese + salad.
Do you have 15 min? You will be in luck and swooning over this easy, tasty and quick dinner or lunch idea – here’s how you can channel this easy meal for your frazzled weeknight dinner or lunch:
Melba-Crusted Goat Cheese Salads
4 oz. goat cheese – plain or try one pre-made with added herbs/ingredients
Salt + Pepper
1 egg, lightly beated
2 cups of melba snack crackers, crushed
Salad greens + veggies of your choosing (♥ simple salad of tomatoes/cucumbers/greens)
Roll goat cheese in Italian seasoning or other seasonings you love (herbs de provence)
Include additional seasoning in the crushed melba snacks or grab a box of flavored melbas
Divide goat cheese log into 2 patties and season with salt/pepper, as desired. Dredge each
patty into the egg and roll in the crushed melba snacks. Place the patties into plastic bags and store in the freezer for at least 5 minutes – they can be left in tightly sealed bags for up to a week.
When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake until soft, approximately 12 minutes. Place on a bed of greens and enjoy!
