Fried goat cheese is one of life’s special pleasures. Coat each slice in crushed Candied Pecans (or any crushed nuts) or in crumbs (gluten-free for Passover) and quickly fry in oil. It’s crunchy, creamy and delicious. You can add the fried goat cheese medallions to salads or soups or just eat them with crackers, sliced apples or pears.

These days, there are many flavors of goat cheese to be had for Passover and all year round. There are goat cheese logs coated in pepper, in herbs, mixed with cranberries and even just plain goat cheese. Experiment with the kind you like best.
