When I was working as an event planner, I had the pleasure of sampling a wide array of delicious hors d’oeuvres. One that really stood out to me was a goat cheese tart that had little bits of bacon and a balsamic drizzle on top. Oh my gosh it was so good. I had it on my list of things to try and recreate for quite some time. I knew I wanted to make a fried goat cheese with this inspiration, then topped it with extra crispy bacon and drizzled a savory balsamic reduction over top. The result is spectacular. Just the right amount of creamy goat cheese to salty bacon to tangy balsamic. You really must try these!
After this week, things will go dark around here for about 2 weeks. Due to family reasons, my husband and I are moving home to Jersey City, NJ. It has been a whirlwind these past few weeks, but we’ve had amazing support from our family and friends. I have some plans for a few new Thanksgiving dessert treats, but I’ll probably be getting back into a routine of cooking and menu planning in December.
