I saw this on instagram or pinterest…it’s not really a recipe, but I have to share it because ┬áit’s so simple and so good!




  1. Using a ramekin, coat the inside with olive oil on bottom and sides and press goat cheese into the ramekin.
  2. Freeze for a couple of minutes and then remove and run a knife around the edges and place on a plate or dish with sides.
  3. Place olives around the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the red pepper flakes and fresh thyme on cheese and olives. Drizzle a little olive oil over the entire dish.
  5. Serve with crackers or bread


To save even more time, you could buy a goat cheese round rather than the log shape. I used what we had on hand, but next time I’ll buy it in a round shape.
