    • 10 1/2 ounces goat cheese, log
    • 1/2 cup roasted salted sunflower seeds
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • mint, for garnish
    • berries, for garnish


    1. 1
      Spread the sunflower seeds on a piece of wax paper. Roll the goat cheese log in the sunflower seeds on all sides and on the ends. You will need to firmly press the seeds into the cheese to make them stick.
    2. 2

      This recipe had people raving! I chose it because it was one of those "instant" appetizers. I will make it again because it was so delicious as well! I used a smaller log of goat cheese, so just drizzled some honey on top after rolling in sunflower seeds. The most difficult part was getting the sunflower seeds to stick! YUM!

      I made this for a family get together and I only had a little chunk left over to bring home ~ everybody enjoyed the sunflower seeds and honey drizzle. I used 2 different cheeses ~ 1 lemon, and 1 cracked pepper ~ and both got rave reviews. Thanks for such a quick and classy way to serve a cheese log. Made for the FAMILY PICKS Round of ZWT5, for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.

      Oh wow! I made this for a picnic today and it was just wonderful! I accidentally bought sun dried basil goat cheese, but it didn't seem to make a difference. It was still good. I rolled the cheese in sunflower seeds, then when I was ready to eat it, I layered it - french bread, cheese, mint, berry then honey. It was less sticky and easier to control how much honey was on each slice by putting it on right before I was going to eat it rather than on the whole thing. Wonderful - and will made again soon. Made for ZWT5, RRR.
