Warm melty goat cheese crusted in toasted walnuts, chives and savory mushrooms. With this surprise tip, you cheese will come out perfectly melted – but not a puddle of cheese.
Larger pieces of nuts in the crust are prettier – but the smaller pieces are easier to work with.
Logs of cream cheese or other soft cheese could be substituted for goat cheese.
If you freeze the cheese longer than 20 minutes, the walnuts may not stick into it as well; if this happens, just let it thaw a few minutes before trying to rolls cheese in nuts.
