Goat Cheese, Bacon and Pistachio Truffles

I found this recipe a couple weeks ago and fell in love. This has been the year of food exploration for me. I'm learning what to eat, how much to eat and most importantly what not to eat. I served these up at a small group and they were gone fast. When one of my friends who is currently pregnant and has gestational diabetes was able to eat quite a few of these with no complications, I decided to make them again for her baby shower in a double batch. Gone again! 

What you need:

  • 8 ounces softened goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bacon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios


What you do:

In a large mixing bowl, mix together goat cheese, bacon, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Make small (roughly 1 inch) balls with your hands. I used a round tablespoon to scoop.

In a small bowl, add the chopped pistachios. Roll each ball in the pistachios to coat then place on a plate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
