Jammin' Apps with Baguettes

Alright, these are a couple of really simple cheese & jam combos that are perfect for snacking, a charcuterie board or when you're hosting some of your favorite people. Obviously, during the Junky Janko Hit's the Road I served them with some fresh Kamut baguettes, but you can smear, dunk or dip just about anything - veggies, crackers, breads you name it.

Goat Cheese & Cream Cheese Combo


5 oz. Goat Cheese

8 oz. Cream cheese

Because I feel like goat cheese is an iffy cheese for a huge crowd (of people i don't know), I errored on the side of less goat cheese and more cream cheese. If you know you're a goat cheese fan, go ahead and do a 50/50 split! Mix it together really well and drop it down on a beautiful board, something like this! Then top it with a healthy amount of your favorite jam - for the bus trip, I did the Jalapeno Peach. Finally, surround it with your favorite smearing, dipping or dunking vessels!

Buttered Strawberry & Rhubarb Jam


1 Stick of Salted Butter

1/4 Cup - 1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar

A Heaping Spoonful of your Favoirte Jam - I Used the Strawberry Rhubarb Preserves

Mix together really well. You can tip the scale for both, the powdered sugar and the preserves up or down to your taste. I always error on the side of more is better! Serve with fresh bread. This is also a delicious go to to have on hand in the fridge during the week. It goes great on waffles, pancakes & your morning toast!

Hot Pepper Goat Cheese Dip


10oz. goat cheese

4 oz. Cream Cheese

1/4 C. Milk

2 Garlic Gloves

3 Sprigs of picked Thyme (ok to sub a large dash of dried)

1/2 Cup Pepper Jelly

6 Chopped Green Onions

Toasted Baguette for Serving, Crackers or Veggies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees

  2. Soften Cream cheese and Goat Cheese. Mix together by hand or in a stand mixer until evenly incorporated.

  3. Slowly add in milk garlic and thyme.

  4. Bake at 350 for 10-25 minutes, or until slightly bubbly.

  5. Top with Pepper Jam and scallions
