For cheese:

  • 2-113 g Goat Cheese logs
  • 3/4 tsp minced fresh rosemary
  • 3/4 tsp minced fresh thyme

For coating:

  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour + ¼ tsp coarse salt
  • 1 egg beaten + 1 tsp water
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 oz/2 tbsp melted butter


  • Combine the goat cheese and herbs in a small bowl.
  • Roll a scant two tablespoons of the goat cheese mixture between your palms to form a ball, then flatten it into a disc shape of ½”-inch thickness. Place it on a parchment-lined plate. Repeat with remaining goat cheese. You’ll get about 9 discs total. Freeze for ten minutes.
  • Arrange three shallow dishes side by side. In the first, place 4 tbsp flour mixed with ¼ tsp coarse salt. In the second, beat 1 egg with 1 tsp water. In the third, place 1 cup panko breadcrumbs stirred with 2 tbsp melted butter.
  • Coat each disc first in the flour, then the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs (press them in to adhere). Transfer each fritter back to the parchment-lined plate as you go and freeze again for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment and preheat oven to 425ºF. Transfer frozen fritters to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
