  • 1 cup crushed Cheetos
  • 2 TBSP fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp or more salt
  • 1 large log Goat Cheese or 2 small logs
  • 1 French baguette
  • 2 TBSP olive oil for brushing on baguette slices


  1. Add 1 cup Cheetos to a food processor.
  2. Pulse until finely ground
  3. Add chopped rosemary, salt and pepper.
  4. Mix until well combined.
  5. Roll goat cheese log in Cheeto mixture until fully covered.
  6. I like a lot of Cheetos dust so I placed a bed on the plate and then set the crusted goat cheese log on top.
  7. Serve with oven-toasted crostini

To make crostini:

  1. Slice baguttte and lay out on a sheet pan.
  2. Drizzle or brush with olive oil.
  3. Bake at 325 for about 12 minutes watching to make sure they turn golden brown and do not burn.
