Goat Cheese Toast
1 loaf french bread
1 package goat cheese, 3-4 oz
1 small package cream cheese
fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper to taste
To make Goat cheese bruschetta we start with goat cheese
which is also called chevre… Chevre is the French word for goat.
You may use it straight or cut it slightly with some cream cheese.
If you want to cut the goat cheese, allow equal parts of cream cheese and goat cheese to come to room temperature. Mix them together, set aside.
Slice the bread and place slices on a baking sheet
Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Toast the bread in a 400-degree oven until light brown.
Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature
Spread the goat cheese generously on the bread
Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves,
salt and pepper
and a drizzle of olive oil
Bake these goat cheese or chevre bruschetta in a 400-degree oven until they are hot all the way through.
Don’t brown the goat cheese because it’s really delicate and we don’t want to change it’s texture.
Arrange on a serving platter, garnish with thyme sprigs and drizzle them with more extra virgin olive oil
serve as an appetizer.
A great sauce for the goat cheese bruschetta is made by reducing
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar until it becomes syrupy
Serve this balsamic vinegar syrup on the side so your guests can drizzle it on the bruschetta.
