We recently hosted a group of friends for dinner, and we served Pizza on the Grill . It's my absolute favorite summer dinner, and when we go to the trouble to make it, we like to have a lot of people to share it with. However, when I'm cooking for a crowd I often end up overbuying ingredients, because I'm always worried I'll run out and someone will go hungry. This time the ingredient I got way too much of was goat cheese--twelve whole ounces of it.
I quickly found out that it was a problem I could deal with, because I remembered that I had this awesome cheesecake recipe that calls for goat cheese. Of course it's one of the hoity toity recipes that came from Bon Appetit, but trust me, it is so worth it. You won't believe how light and smooth this cheesecake is.
Here are the ingredients you need to make the best cheesecake on the planet: shortbread cookies, lemons, sugar, goat cheese, cream cheese, an orange, sour cream, vanilla, eggs, and strawberries. Not too bad as far as ingredients go. The goat cheese is really the only strange ingredient. Give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Here's the recipe card.
