The smooth creaminess of goat cheese pairs magnificently with the spicy cherry bomb peppers in Spicy Strawberry Bomb. Take this to your next holiday party for an impressive addition to the appetizer table.
16oz. Goat Cheese, softened
3 Tbs. Sour Cream
2 Tbs. Fresh Herbs (we used basil and rosemary), optional
1 Jar Slow Jams Spicy Strawberry Bomb Jam
½ Tbs. Olive Oil (or Cooking Spray)
Line a 1 Quart mixing bowl with plastic wrap and coat the inside of the bowl with olive oil (or use a cooking spray).
Using a mixer, beat the goat cheese, sour cream and fresh herbs until combined.
Beginning with the goat cheese mixture, layer ½ a cup of goat cheese on the bottom of the bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom so it is even. Take 1/3 cup of Spicy Strawberry Bomb Slow Jams and spread a layer over the goat cheese. Repeat with remaining layers, goat cheese, then jam, ending with goat cheese.
When you are finished layering the goat cheese and jam, fold the plastic wrap over the bomb and press firmly so the mixture molds firmly into the bowl. Chill the bomb for at least 2 hours (if you are pressed for time, you can place in the freezer for up to 1 hour).
When you are ready to unmold the bomb, carefully pull the mold out of the bowl and invert onto a plate. Unwrap the bomb, garnish with fresh herbs and serve with crackers or fresh baguette.
