CULINARY TWIST: For the cheese lovers!
There are many ways to use pecans in breakfast foods, baked goods, and snacks! From adding a handful to cereal, oatmeal, granola, yogurt, rice pudding, or even ice cream, pecans add nutrition, character, texture, and flavor to a versatile array of foods. We love adding pecans to savory foods, and one of our favorite combinations is pairing pecans with goat cheese! The tangy, creamy taste and texture of goat cheese is a wonderful compliment to the buttery richness of pecans. Mix soft goat cheese, chopped pecans, golden raisins, thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper together and use it as a stuffing for chicken breasts, pork chops, roasted peppers, zucchini boats, or even as a crostini topper!
