Breakfast Cheese

Honey being poured over slices of breakfast cheese with a stack of plates and a log of breakfast cheese nearby.

We use Belle Chèvre’s fromage blanc for our recipe (fromage blanc is a soft, creamy cheese), but if you can’t find it, you can use goat cheese mashed with a little milk or cream until it’s of a spreadable consistency. The amount of liquid needed will depend on how dry the cheese is.–Tasia Malakasis

LC Not Just For Breakfast Note

Not just for breakfast, this savory sweet concoction that’s obscenely, indulgently easy to toss together is just as welcome as a simple supper or a postprandial something. If you lust after something a little more on the savory side, anoint the cheese with a sprinkle of crushed pink or black peppercorns after dribbling it with honey.

Recipe Testers' Reviews

Every morning as a child I’d sit at the breakfast table and watch my mother eat bread and butter with her coffee. I felt sorry that she was missing out on the wondrous pleasure of Honey Nut Cheerios and would always ask her why she didn’t eat a more exciting breakfast. She always assured me that she was perfectly satisfied with her choice. Now every morning as my son eats his Cheerios or maple syrup-laden something-or-other, he gives my bread and butter the same look I gave my mother’s all those years ago, that mixture of pity and smugness that comes from feeling like his decision was better than mine. I happened to have a little pyramid of Chavrie in my fridge and a loaf of raisin walnut multigrain bread. It hadn’t occurred to me earlier to introduce them to each other. The honey drizzle of course put it over the top. While my son took no interest, I’ll definitely incorporate this into my mornings more often.

A super quick, cheesy, sweet breakfast. When smeared on crisp toast and served with a cup of tea it makes me feel as though I’m traveling around the Aegean all over again. I did drizzle my honey over the cheese instead of mixing it in. I think you get a much better flavor profile of a bit of sharp then sweet as opposed to just sweet cheese. A delightful and easy breakfast, but oh so good.

  1. Goat cheese and honey is one of my favorite summer things — a couple of perfect apricots, a scoop of cheese, a drizzle of honey on a plate with a sprig of mint, maybe a grinding of black pepper. Heaven. All it needs is the right refreshing sipper. 😉

      1. I’ve just been looking at the (Mar 12) Irish Soda Bread recipe and thinking this cheese would be heaven on a hunk of that. Even in the winter. 😉

  2. As a teen when we visited my fathers family in Poland I was aghast at eating soft white cheese (twaróg or bialy ser) on bread for breakfast. Now I crave it and Farmers Cheese is the best substitute I can find in the local rural grocery store.

  3. While I have yet to try this, I do eat bread or toast with cream cheese—my favorites are rye or toasted raisin bread, cheese, and a schmear of strawberry jam!
