Goat Cheese Bake


About this Recipe

It’s time time switch things up a little!

This goat cheese bake is surprisingly full of flavor, high in protein and low in carbs.

Did you know that goat cheese is a great source of calcium and other nutrients, such as vitamin A and riboflavin?

Some potential health benefits of goat cheese include these: 

  1. Heart health: Goat cheese is lower in saturated fat than many other types of cheese, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
  2. Digestive health: Goat cheese is easier to digest than cow’s milk cheese due to the smaller size of the fat globules in goat milk. This can be beneficial for people with lactose intolerance or other digestive issues.
  3. Strong bones: Goat cheese is an excellent source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong bones and teeth.

It’s worth noting that while goat cheese can be a healthy choice, it is still high in calories and should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

We’ve used a 8 oz dish in this recipe. But don’t worry if you can’t manage it all. Simply set the rest aside for for later!
