Oh how I love goat cheese! Seriously – it’s such a versatile cheese, which is why I’ve shared quite a few recipes on this blog that include goat cheese. It adds amazing flavor to both dinner recipes, like stuffed Apple Spinach Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken, and appetizers, like my Lemon Herb Goat Cheese Log or my favorite Baked Goat Cheese Marinara Dip. I actually promised you all a goat cheese recipe every month to the end of the year, so here I am stopping by with the November recipe for Cranberry Orange Goat Cheese Log!

The Cranberry Orange Walnut Goat Cheese Log has a great combination of tang and bitterness along with the creamy goat cheese. It’s definitely full of flavor and gorgeous color, making it perfect for your holiday get togethers. Plus, it’s so easy to make. This goat cheese log only require some chopping and dicing (which I use my food processor for), some quick zesting, and some rolling. Done! You can have this ready to go in under 10 minutes.

What I especially love about this recipe (and about the goat cheese recipe I will be sharing with you all in December) is the cranberries! I feel like cranberries are often given the short end of the food stick, often being relegated to just cranberry sauce for the holidays. Now, I like cranberry sauce. I do. But cranberries can offer so much more to your holiday tables, like this goat cheese log or like my Cranberry and Orange Egg Nog Scones or my Cranberry Jalapeno Cream Cheese Dip. So don’t be afraid to introduce cranberries into new and different recipes for your family!
