Herbed Goat Cheese

My latest concept recipe – thank goodness readers like flexibility and adaptability as much as I do – that starts with a creamy base of goat cheese and cottage cheese mixed and baked until warm with bits of vegetables and fresh herbs.

Great for Meal Prep.

That's right, it's a BLT Salad instead of a BLT sandwich! Fresh & Summery. Weight Watchers Friendly. Low Carb.
