These savory cheesecakes are a relaxed and easy appetizer. The recipe may be doubled, and also works with Maine scallops or crab meat.
Servings 6


  • 8 ounces cream cheese or soft goat cheese at room temperature
  • ¼ pound Maine lobster meat cooked and chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallot or onion


  • Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease 2 – 8 ounce ramekins
  • Finely chop the fresh herbs and shallot.
  • Chop the lobster (or seafood of your choice) into small pieces.
  • Add the room temperature soft cheese to the bowl of your food processor or electric mixer. Pulse or beat the soft cheese until it has a smooth consistency with no lumps. Slowly beat in the egg.
  • Add the chopped herbs and the Maine lobster and gently mix.
  • Spoon the mixture into the greased ramekins.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden and set.


Serve with fresh veggie sticks and crusty French bread or crackers. Each ramekin serves three people as an appetizer, for a total of 6 servings.
