How to Make Goat Cheese & Honey Bruschetta

What nuts go well with goat cheese bruschetta with honey?
I think that hazelnuts go perfectly but we can’t overlook that walnuts would also make a fabulous pairing. You want to make sure that you use a nut that is on the softer side and with a “buttery” texture if that makes sense. Nuts like macadamia nuts would be a perfect example of this but those are very high priced so walnuts and hazelnuts are good affordable options. Harder nuts like almonds and pecans may taste great but will need to be slivered so that they aren’t too hard to bite through.
What do you eat with honey goat cheese?
Find yourself with leftover cheese spread? go ahead and serve it up with some sliced fruits like nectarines, apples, strawberries or peaches. Cooked or grilled fruits would also pair together wonderfully.
How long is honey goat cheese good for?
You can keep the leftover cheese spread in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks at most. I recommend eating it sooner rather than later though as it will taste best when freshly made.
