Goat Cheese Croquettes with Spring Mix, Blueberries and Honey-Balsamic Reduction
1 log goat cheese, frozen (I put mine in about 30 minutes before I started)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tbsp fine cornmeal
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup fresh, organic blueberries
2 cup spring mix/micro greens/arugula etc
1 tbsp honey
1/2 C balsamic vinegar (you can use the cheap stuff for this)

In a sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the balsamic vinegar and honey. Let it cook down until it’s reduced by half and coats the back of a spoon. Slice your frozen goat cheese log into 1-1.5” rounds. Add the panko and cornmeal together and give it a quick stir.One at a time, take one round and dip it into the beaten egg, and then into the panko/cornmeal mixture. Press the round lightly into the bread crumbs, flip and repeat. Set aside. Repeat until all your goat cheese rounds are breaded and ready to be fried. In a frying pan, heat vegetable oil until it ripples. Add the rounds to the pan and fry until golden brown [+/- 2 minutes]. Gently flip and repeat.
