Maple and bacon go really well together and we couldn’t help but think that a party platter with cheese triangles would be a perfect pairing for this incredible sauce. It will be a hit at your next party for sure. Who can resist?
6 oz. goat cheese, softened
1 tbs. honey
1 ½ tsp. ground cardamom
6 Sheets of phyllo dough
½ stick butter, melted
1 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla flavored
1 tbs. maple syrup
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3 slices of bacon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, the honey and the cardamom until well blended. Set aside.
Arrange the bacon in a frying pan and cook until crispy. Crumble or cut into bits. Set aside.
Brush each sheet of phyllo dough with the melted butter and layer together. Brush the top layer with butter and cut the phyllo into three strips and again into four squares. Add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture onto the phyllo square and fold into triangles pinching the edges to seal shut. Brush each finished triangle with butter.
Place triangles onto a baking sheet and bake for 15- 20 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a baking rack.
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, maple syrup and the pumpkin pie spice.
To serve, spread a spoonful of the yogurt sauce on the bottom of a plate, arrange the phyllo triangles and sprinkle with the bacon.
