This is good not only in a basket of breads for the dinner table but also as a tangy breakfast item. You can bake the entire amount of dough in a loaf pan and make one big bread, but I prefer the small muffin-size version. If you can get it, use the New Orleans–made Chisesi ham, which has the perfect taste and texture for this.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 8 oz. fresh (not aged or feta) goat cheese

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin-tin pockets or a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with the butter.
  2. Combine the goat cheese and cream cheese in the bowl of a mixer and mix until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, while the mixer is running.
