The best part about holiday entertaining is all of the delicious food. We spend a lot of time thinking about the turkey or ham when it comes to holiday food, but today I’m sharing a delicious appetizer idea that will be perfect for your holiday party. I whipped up these Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese bites, and topped them with toasted pecans and pure maple syrup for a delicious appetizer that has some pretty great flavor combinations.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these-
- 2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 3-4 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 4 oz goat cheese
- 2 tbsp milk
- Notable Chardonnay to pair with these delicious little bites 😉
To make them, preheat your oven to 425 degrees and spray a large rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, toss potato slices in olive oil and cinnamon to coat. Then, lay them down in a single layer. Pop them into the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Take them out, flip them all, and put them back into the oven for another 8 minutes. Meanwhile, whip the goat cheese and milk in a medium bowl until fluffy.
Once the potato slices are baked, spread about a tsp of the goat cheese mixture onto each one. Top with toasted, chopped pecans, and then drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy!
These paired wonderful with Notable Chardonnay. I love Notable, because they let you know what flavors you are getting right on the front of the bottle. Shopping the wine aisle can be pretty intimidating with all of the choices available, so this is so helpful. The oaky and buttery notes of this Chardonnay are so perfect for the holiday season. You can find Notable Chardonnay in stores now.
With these sweet potato and goat cheese bites and Notable Chardonnay, your holiday gathering will be a hit from the start. The holidays don’t have to be stressful, hopefully this easy appetizer and drink idea will give you some inspiration for your holiday planning.
