What to do with too much goat cheese?

I'm thinking some kind of flan or baked thing. It's a soft white cheese with no rind.

  1. It tastes great in salads or on toasted italian bread with some bruscetta

    1. It is wonderful in polenta, in a quiche, or on a thin crust pizza with wild mushrooms.

      1. I agree with Ellen and here's a delicious and beautiful recipe for goat cheese and polenta tart from Cooking Light...I like adding roasted red pepper to the top in addition to the yellow and green squash:

        1. I'm not sure it is possible to have too much goat cheese ...

          I realize you've asked for sweet ideas, and I'm sorry I don't have such a recipe to offer (I've eaten some spectacular cheese cakes made with goat cheese), but I do have this recipe for a mushroom and goat cheese tart that is simple and delicious:

            I didn't ask for sweet ideas - this looks very good.

              cheesecake made with goat cheese is outstanding.
              so is goat cheese pizza: spread goat cheese on a prebaked pizza crust then top with roasted eggplant and roasted red peppers. so good!

                I thought the same thing. What a great problem to have. I love goat cheese in tossed green salads with toasted pine nuts and roasted red peppers. Maybe some kalamata olives. A light dressing. Yum.

                  Also wonderful in a salad of just watermelon, a little olive oil and the goat cheese. Olives too if you have them.

              2. My husband made a goat cheese panna cotta topped with bluberries and maple/bacon sauce, that was very good. Used some goat cheese, but also goat milk and regular milk. We used the rest of the goat milk to make cajeta. I love that stuff!
