Baked Eggs with Green Peppers, Bacon and Goat Cheese

Are you a fan of goat cheese?  I have to admit that although I am a cheese lover, this is one variety of cheese that I hadn’t purchased in the past.  When I was given the chance to purchase it, I happily accepted, because cheese!  If you enjoy cooking with cheese, then you are going to absolutely love the variety offered by Joan of Arc Goat Cheese!

Joan of Arc Goat Cheese is light, flavorful, and an easy addition to meals ranging from an every day grilled cheese sandwich to your favorite gourmet meals. I would describe its texture as being slightly creamy and crumbly, making it very easy on the palette. This delicious goat cheese can be added to a cheese plate at a wine and cheese gathering, or be served as a part of other offerings in snack-sized portions, or as a part of full meals.

Available in 4oz. logs, and 5oz. bags, Joan of Arc Goat Cheese is available in a wide range of flavors, including Traditional, Sun Dried Tomato and Basil, and Cranberry & Cinnamon. The wide range of choices, in addition to the creamy and crumbly texture of the cheese, allows anyone to prepare creative meals, and add life and zing to the existing flavors of any dish.

Recipes and Meals Ideas

The products in the Joan of Arc Goat Cheese line are a great addition to pastas, pizzas, lasagnas, and so many other dishes that we traditionally enjoy with cheese. For example, the Dried Tomato and Basil option can add a nice flavor to your favorite pasta dish.  I tried it in one of my favorite breakfast dishes and it was perfect.  Philip, who does not like goat cheese didn’t even realize I added it to the dish until I told him!  Here’s the recipe.
