Welcome to this week’s #SundaySupper event which is all about “mum”. Yes, we are celebrating our mothers and cooking up one of their favourite recipes in honour of the upcoming Mother’s Day!
I recently planted some thyme in my backyard and I must admit that it is growing nicely. I love to use fresh herbs in my cooking, I find that, unlike dried herbs which are much stronger, they add a delicate aroma to the food I make.
I saw the recipe for these Baked Goats Cheese Rolls with Honey and Thyme on Twitter a while ago and I thought it would be a good dish in which to use some of my homegrown thyme. Not to mention the fact that my mum, like me, LOVES cheese!
The recipe itself is pretty straightforward, but what really sets it apart is the use of honey. Goat’s cheese and honey is always a great combination and thyme adds the needed earthiness that completes the flavour profile of the dish, making it irresistible.
If, like me, you are a fan of goat cheese, then make sure to check out my other goat cheese-based recipes like my Eggplant and Tri-colour Goat Cheese Mille-feuille on Couscous,

My post on how to make your own Goat’s Milk Ricotta cheese at home,

And last but not least, my beautiful and delicious Beetroot Pasta Hearts with Goat Cheese.

Baked Goats Cheese Rolls with Honey and Thyme
Baked Goats Cheese Rolls with Honey and Thyme - a classy and delicious appetiser idea!
- 1- 2 rectangular filo at sheets depending on the size of your sheets
- Leaves from 8 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 60 gms – 4 tbsp butter melted
- 125 gms – 5 oz. soft goat’s cheese
- 4 tsp honey lavender if possible
Cut the filo sheet in half lengthways, and in half crossways to make 4 rectangles measuring approximately 15x20 cm (6”x8”).
Brush the rectangles generously with butter, ensuring that about 1 tbsp is saved to brush the tops.
Sprinkle some thyme leaves along the long length of each pastry rectangle and fold it in to encase it. Crumble some goat’s cheese in a line along the opposite short side of the pastry. Starting at the goats cheese end, roll the pastry once over the goats cheese and carry on rolling all way to the thyme, sealing the join.
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and brush once more with the remaining butter. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 15-20 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Serve immediately with a drizzle of honey on top.

These look delicious – goat cheese and honey are a perfect pairing.

First let me say THANK YOU 🙂
I`ve tried this recipe yesterday and the reaction of my husband was “I can eat 1000 of these”.
The recipe is amazing 🙂
Claire | Sprinkles and Sprouts says
These look so sensational! And a wonderful addition to drinks with friends.
And so few ingredients!!! Fabulous, I have everything I need in the fridge/pantry/freezer.
Off to make some to for our afternoon tea!
these look so tasty! A perfect mothers’ day appetizer
I haveleftover wonton wrappers i’d like to use up. Think they would work with this recipe?
The texture will be a bit different, but the recipe will still work. Let me know how it comes out! 🙂
Raya Robinson says
I can’t find the recipte can you please help me.
Hi Raya. You can find the recipe if you scroll down a bit. I hope it helps. Enjoy! 🙂
Deb Lorah says
Do you think these could be made in advance and frozen? Maybe thaw and add the butter once they are at room temp? These look absolutely perfect for the tapas party my quilt group is planning for our retreat in April, but I don’t want to take up kitchen time when I know everyone else will be needing counter space to prep their items.
I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why not. Make sure to use fresh (and not frozen) filo pastry sheets if you want to freeze them after you have assembled them. 🙂
Katie Byrd says
Hi there! I know this is an older post, but I just now found it! I was wondering if these can be assembled ahead of time, then refrigerated until ready to bake and serve? Like a day or two? Thank you so much!
This looks so good! What a unique appetizer to bring to a party!
Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?
This looks so good! What a great savory and sweet appetizer to bring to a get together!
Thanks for sharing! How far ahead of time can I make them?
