  • 8 ounces plain goat cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper
  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon, fried and chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup pistachios, chopped and crushed


  • In a large bowl, combine softened goat cheese with peppers, bacon, garlic salt and pepper. Using a large spoon, spatula or even your hands, mix and stir until combined well and everything seems equally distributed through the goat cheese.
  • Roll the goat cheese into 1/2-1 inch balls (or smaller or larger, depending on your preference), then roll through the pistachios to coat. Set on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. These can be made well ahead of time – I’d say at least about 3 days.
  • Store in the fridge!


Note: you can roast your own peppers or use jarred roasted reds. You just want about 1/2 cup of chopped peppers. I also think some fresh herbs would be perfect in there.
