This simple recipe for easy goat cheese truffles is the quick and scrumptious appetizer recipe you’ve been looking for!  Grab some goat cheese and get ready for them to disappear.


  • 8 ounces of your favorite goat cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 slices of bread, any kind
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 chopped fresh parsley


  1. Break off small pieces (about 1 inch or so) of the goat cheese and roll them between your palms to make little balls.  Place on a cookie sheet or plate while you make the bread crumbs.
  2. Whirl the bread in your food processor for a few seconds until it is in fine crumbs.
  3. Pour the olive oil into a skillet and heat over medium high heat.  Add the bread crumbs and stir until they are a nice crispy golden brown.  Pour into a shallow bowl and stir in a pinch each of salt and pepper and let them cool down for about 5 -10 minutes.  Stir in parsley.
  4. Roll the goat cheese truffles in the bread crumbs, pressing them in slightly, and arrange on a pretty plate.  If you are not serving them right away (or if you want them to have a firmer consistency), pop them in the fridge.
