My new favorite appetizer from Southern Living. This is super-fast to throw together before guests arrive, and the presentation is beautiful!

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!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 297.66 g goat cheese, log
  • 118.29 ml roasted salted sunflower seeds
  • 78.07 ml honey
  • mint, for garnish
  • berries, for garnish


  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. Place cheese on serving platter and drizzle honey all over the top. Garnish with any leftover seeds, mint, and the nicest looking berries you can find. Serve with crackers.
