I’m excited to team up today with Vermont Creamery and Zutano, both Vermont based companies, to bring you a fun, easy and tasty kids friendly recipe plus a fun giveaway. Vermont Creamery and Zutano have teamed up this month on a great campaign: Kids & Kids. A fun play on words, they’re bringing kids clothing and baby goat (kids) cheese recipes to you! I’ve always been a fan of both companies so I’m thrilled to work with them on this. My older son had quite the Zutano collection when he was younger and, of course, passed it all along to his younger brother who has just about outgrown it all. *sniff, sniff.* How do they grow up so fast? I swear, I blink my eyes and they’ve grown a size overnight.

Vermont Creamery makes the most amazing cultured butter– and you know how much I love my butter, so that’s saying quite a bit! The goat cheese is just as spectacular. The chèvre is great crumbled over a salad or smeared onto a baguette with some fresh herbs but I’m totally digging their creamy goat cheese spreads right now as they make a great quick snack spread on crackers or some celery sticks- the roasted red pepper is to die for! Goat cheese can be a great option for growing bodies as it’s high in calcium and protein. It’s a little easier to digest than cows milk cheese so those with dairy intolerances can often eat goat cheese instead. The fact that there are no additives, preservatives or growth hormones in Vermont Creamery’s products makes me one happy mama!

I wanted to make a kid friendly recipe that was quick and one the kids could could actually help me make. Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day so we got to work Sunday afternoon, making this breakfast for dinner. In all honesty, this isn’t much of a recipe. It’s ultra quick to put together and hardly requires any cooking at all- unless you count toasting waffles in the toaster… it’s been so hot out, any excuse not to turn my oven on, I’m all in!

The fresh fruit is so incredible right now, pick whatever is good locally and go for it. These can be topped with whatever you fancy- bananas, berries, sliced plum, peaches… you name it, I know it will be good! I totally cheated and used frozen gluten free waffles (sometimes even I need some help in the kitchen) but any homemade recipe would be spectacular!

  1. tess says:

    thick cold goat cheese slices on a crispy green salad, hopefully topped with some fresh seasonal fruit, and some crusty bread slices alongside is my favorite way to enjoy goat cheese.

  2. Heather says:

    I mean, I love goat cheese just about any way I can get it, but my absolute favorite and most common way these days is in a baked sweet potato. It’s just heaven!

  3. Robin Mazzone says:

    Scoop walnuts or pecans in goat cheese as a healthy snack:)

  4. Jennifer DaPonte says:

    Goat cheese is a nice surprise when spread on a toasted baguette slice and topped with a mixture of chopped tomato, basil & oil

  5. Sarah H.P. says:

    I’m a simple girl and love goat cheese crumbled on a salad with dried cranberries, mixed greens, candied walnuts, and a balsamic vinaigrette!

  6. KL says:

    I like it on anything, I could marry cheese!

  7. Jackie M says:

    It might be easier to say where I don’t use goat cheese. It is my go to cheese these days. Over eggs in the AM sprinkled in salads for lunch, used in almost any dish that calls for soft cheese I use goat cheese. It is a great replacement cheese for filling pasta cheese. But this recipe may become my new favorite!

  8. Jutta P. says:

    To be honest, as an adult I haven’t used goat cheese in cooking. I would really like to start though. But as a child, I had a friend and she used to make her own goat cheese. I remember specifically one hot summer day, we took a hike in the woods. For our picnic lunch, we had apples, grapes and saltine crackers with goat cheese. It was so yummy!!!

  9. becca says:

    wow. what a great giveaway! i love goat cheese, a yummy homemade jam, and toast. pretty straight forward, i know 😉 with two little ones under the age of three, that’s about all i can handle.

  10. Jess M says:

    I’ll be honest – using goat cheese any other way than on a salad would be branching out for me. But typically if it’s kid-friendly, it’s Jess-friendly too – so I will have to try this recipe soon!

  11. Tracy says:

    Roasted tomato and goat cheese open faced sandwich….delicious! But really, any cheese with any meal is up my alley. 🙂

  12. Elise O. says:

    I put goat cheese in EVERYTHING. I can’t get enough. I will definitely be trying it on waffles now!

  13. Heather Deford says:

    Goat cheese is one of the only cheeses that I can eat and still feel good (other cheeses make me congested). So I use goat cheese frequently. And my five year old love it too “I am a big fan of goat cheese”. It is hard to come up with my favorite. Mmmm, can I give two????
    … all i have time for is one: A large bunch of Dino kale torn up into small bite size pieces (my daughter’s job) . A big spoonful of goat cheese and an avocado on top with a splash of udo’s oil and the juice of lemon (I prefer Meyers). Then massage it all together (Also my daughter’s job). Once the kale softens then I toss in toasted almond slivers and cranberries and then crumble more goat cheese on top.

  14. Robin says:

    My favorite recipe using goat cheese so far was the one I used this past Easter. My dad’s family is Greek so I wanted to make a Greek dish. I found a recipe online for a stuffed leg of lamb with goat cheese and bell peppers. It took almost 2 hours to make, but was well worth it!

  15. angela says:

    i love it paired with some good fresh crusty bread. with a little black pepper.

  16. Sandra T says:

    Mix soft goat cheese with your favourite fresh herbs (chopped), minced garlic (to taste), freshly ground black pepper and enough olive oil to create a cheese spread like consistency. Serve with fresh crusty bread.

  17. Rachel Kate says:

    Love a schmear of goat cheese on my lunchtime sandwiches!

  18. Molly says:

    The recipe that made me fall in love with goat cheese was a vegetarian pasta dish with kind of a ratatouille spin at a favorite restaurant. It was the perfect addition! Now I love it just about anywhere cheese makes sense:) In salads, on crackers, with fruit, baked, on its own…delicious!

  19. Bethany M says:

    I like goat cheese with Quinoa in a chilled salad!

  20. Clarissa says:

    I love lightly breaded and pan fried goat cheese rounds on top of a mixed baby greens salad with a nice light vinegarette.

  21. Karen D says:

    I like to use it as a topping on homemade pizza

  22. Angel says:

    I love it on bruschetta with tomatoes and basil,also on salad !

  23. Laura Jacobson says:

    Oh we use goat cheese in our lasagna! It is so good! We made this for a family function a few months ago, and everyone raved about the lasagna….we told them it was the goat cheese!

  24. Meryl says:

    I like it mixed into pasta dishes. I also like it plain on a crusty baguette.

  25. Louis says:

    My favorite is using it in Pierre Franey’s Cucumber/Goat Cheese Salad. It’s also great on a bruschetta with roasted bell peppers and basil.

  26. Mami2jcn says:

    I’ve actually never used goat cheese in a recipe but I took a look at their web site and the goat cheese flan recipe really interests me.

  27. katy says:

    I love it with bruschetta on yummy crusty bread.

  28. rachel says:

    Oh my word, these look amazing! I kind of want to lick my screen – just in case! Girl, you’ve outdone yourself. YUM

  29. Debbie Niskin says:

    What a beautiful, creamy delicious and healthy delight! Thanks for the yummy idea. My daughter and her ever-hungry kids are going to love this.
