herbed goat cheese spread

While reading this article on home fries in the NYTimes I discovered Maître D’Hôtel Butter. It is butter infused with herbs, lemon and some sort of allium. As I read the article it became increasingly clear that the star of this show was the butter.

Then I read about the benefits of eating fresh thyme.

Armed with this information I set forth to make a goat cheese version of fancy butter with my fresh thyme. It turned out lovely. Do it. Your body will thank you.

Herbed Goat Cheese Spread
Serves one.

  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 3-5 basil leaves, minced
  • 5-6 thyme stems, minced
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  1. Smash all ingredients together in a bowl with the back of a fork. Spread on freshly baked baguette slices, or your favorite bread.

  1. I totally prefer goat cheese to butter anyway. So tasty!
