Goat Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes...


Crab stuffed mushrooms are my go-to appetizer for family dinners, dinner parties, holidays and the like... They're so small but filled with so much flavor. While in search of a new crab stuffed mushroom recipe, I came across this delicious recipe for goat cheese stuffed cherry tomatoes from en petit chef


{goat cheese is an amazing flavor... you must try it, if you haven't already...}

Goat Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

  • 1 dozen cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Oz. Goat cheese
  • 1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp fresh minced basil
  • 2 tbsp fresh minced chives
  • A dash of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


Preparation
  • Begin by slicing the tops off of the cherry tomatoes and using a melon baller, scoop out the seeds and pulp.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine goat cheese, Greek yogurt (which helped to loosen the cheese up a little bit, though sour cream, or a splash of buttermilk would work equally well), prepared horseradish (to taste), one small garlic clove (which I grated on a microplane zester), minced fresh basil and chives, a dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
  • Load the cheese mixture into a zip lock bag, snipped off the corner, and “pipe” the filling into each of the tomatoes. (Depending on the size of your tomatoes, you should be able to fill about a dozen or so.) 
  • The tomatoes are beautiful served on a bed of fresh chives (splayed out “pick up sticks” style), and garnished with either more fresh chives or a chiffonade of fresh basil, and the tiniest sprinkling of pimentón.


enjoy...
