    JanuaryBride's Note:

    We had this at Brennan's Wine Bar in St. Louis on Saturday night and loved it. Very simple, but I would have never thought to throw this together myself. It's sweet, savory, creamy and crunchy.. .we devoured it in no time flat!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 ounces sliced drunken goat cheese
    • 3 ounces sliced manchego cheese (may sub any sharp, sturdy white cheese)
    • 20 onion flavored crackers
    • 1/4 cup blackberry jam
    • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
    • 2 tablespoons pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Get out a nice square platter and 2 small bowls (which fit on the platter).
    2. 2
      Place goat cheese fanned out in one corner.
    3. 3
      Fan the manchego out on the opposite corner.
    4. 4
      Place jam/preserves in one bowl and place in an empty corner of the plate.
    5. 5
      Then mix the seeds together in the remaining bowl and place in the opposite corner.
    6. 6
      Feel free to garnish the plate with fresh berries and mint if you have some.
    7. 7
      Place crackers on another plate and serve!
    8. 8
      Guests will take 1 cracker, put 1 piece of cheese on it, spread a small amt of jam on the cheese and top with a small sprinkling of the seed. DELISH! (NOTE: You can also serve them on a platter already made up in this manner).

      Everyone enjoyed. It's class and easy. Add some raspberries / grapes / blueberries on the plate for a little extra awesomeness!

      This was excellent, and a great change to buy two (new to me) cheeses. Both were stunning! And both were great with the jam.<br/><br/>We didn't end up putting out the pepitas or sunflower seeds, because the tray was already super full, since I was also serving with Marcona almonds, Baked Olives (http://www.food.com/recipe/baked-olives-12726) and Roasted Grapes (http://www.food.com/recipe/roasted-grapes-for-cheese-platter-68990).<br/><br/>Thank you so much for posting!<br/><br/>(One final note: I went looking for the Drunken Goat cheese in the aisle with the soft goat cheese, but it actually turns out to be a hard cheese)

      Something as simple as this is always my kind of food! Living in France I often find myself with a cheese and bread lunch, especially when I am by myself........however, this was a nice twist on my usual fare. I have no idea what pepitas are, so I went ahead and used Ste. Maure Chevre cheese (goat's cheese), Tomme (hard cow's milks cheese from the SW of France), pumpkin seeds ( I had no sunflower seeds!), Ritz crackers and home-made Blackberry Jelly. The combination of the sweet with the salty and the cheeses was wonderful. I agree with Susie Cooks, and I may add some olives next time and a handful of almonds would also be nice. Made for the Veggie swap #16 and very much enjoyed thanks! FT :-) PS. I served mine on a rustic round wooden bread board!
