Try a New Holiday Treat

Andy Druetzler, a man who won my heart thirty-some years ago (Andy is the son of our close friends), sent me this easy recipe to share with you. He recently started bringing this simple appetizer to parties and it has been a hit every time. Studs, Kid, and I agreed, Andy has created a winner.

Andy’s Simple Appetizer
½ - ¾ cup marinara sauce
4 oz. goat cheese, unseasoned*
Pita or bagel chips

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Pour a thin layer of marinara sauce into a 1½ - quart oven proof dish.

Slice goat cheese to ¼ - ½ inch thicknesses. Lay the pieces over the majority of the marinara sauce.

Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

At this point you may either stir the mixture into a creamy blend or leave as is.

Let cool and serve with toasted bagel chips or pita chips.

*Sloane here, I made this recipe twice, once with plain goat cheese, the other time with garlic herb goat cheese. The plain is far better. The flavored was harsh had our taste buds screaming for relief.

Mangiare Bene!
