Beets Horseradish and Goat Cheese Appetizer

Posted Jan 30 2011 12:00am

So it's a Sunday night and even though its the bi-week for football and there are no NFL games on its still nice to have Sunday as that "cheat" day and have fun with what you can eat. Sunday's after 2pm are days for relaxing with movies and sweatpants in our house. There is no high class, high adventure times to be had but instead its the time to just lay back and take in the relaxing day which in turn always means that it's perfect snack time (aka my creativity time) where calories don't matter and I can really have fun with what we want to eat.

One of the simplist yet delicious appetizers I've ever made was found on a visit to my local farmers market. Farmers markets not only have the best fresh grown food available but they offer special "grandmother" advise that you could never get at any other local grocery store. There is something called Horseradish Beets that you can find at most of your farmers markets or even at your local grocery store. Try and buy a jar with the simplest ingredients ( less than 5 ingredients and ones that you would actually know what they are) therefore you are eating as close to natural foods as possible.

Goat Cheese
Horseradish and Beets
Crackers for spreading
The simplicity of this recipe is taking a log of goat cheese and spreading 3-5 lg spoonfuls of beets & horseradish over the top. Serve with specialty crackers or wheat thins. The flavor of the sweet-tart horseradish beets over that creamy delicious goat cheese is just a taste you will love.

This is such a quick and simple recipe that you can pull together in second and create such a tasteful snack that you friends and guests will hover over and even though I have my 'Sunday' rule of unhealthy food, this appetizer barely falls into that category. Its the snack that keeps you coming back to the table I promise. Hope you and your friends love it ...Enjoy :)
