Goat cheese mousse is a decadent appetizer that will "wow" guests, even though it's incredibly easy to make. Compared to plain fresh goat cheese, goat cheese mousse has a richer, fluffier texture and milder flavor.

Chives taste especially good added to goat cheese mousse, but other fresh herbs like basil and parsley can be substituted.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream, or heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 4 ounces soft and fresh goat cheese

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Either by hand or using an electric mixer, whisk the cream until it has soft peaks and a texture that is similar to whipped cream. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together goat cheese and milk until the goat cheese has softened. Mix in chives. Gently fold in whipped cream.

  4. Serve chilled with bread and/or crackers on the side.

How to Fold in Cream

When ingredients are "folded" together, it's done so that the ingredients remain light and fluffy and aren't over blended. Folding is most commonly done with whisked egg whites or whipped cream. To fold ingredients together, use a wide spatula. Do not stir; gently move the spatula in a circular up and down motion, going under the whipped cream and gently scooping it up and over the other ingredients. Fold ingredient just until they are combined; don't overmix.
