This blueberry goat cheese appetizer is easy to make and full of tangy berry flavor! Use it as a dip for crackers, crostini or bread.



For the blueberry sauce (*or 10 tablespoons purchased blueberry jam)

  • 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt

For the blueberry goat cheese appetizer

  • 10 ounces goat cheese log
  • 10 tablespoons blueberry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint or thyme
  • Crostini, bread or crackers, for serving


  1. Place the blueberries, sugar, and ¼ cup water in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Bring to a low boil, then cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until the blueberries begin to break down, mashing them with a wooden spoon. Make sure not to let the pot boil over.
  2. Place the cornstarch in a small bowl and mix with 2 tablespoons water. Add it to the sauce and simmer for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and salt. The sauce will thicken even more as it cools. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving (store up to 1 week refrigerated).
  4. When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Spread 1/2 cup of the blueberry sauce in a small baking dish. Add the goat cheese log. Top with 2 tablespoons of the blueberry sauce. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the dish from the oven and top with fresh mint or thyme. Use as a dip for crostini, bread, or crackers.
