Instructions

  • 1.
    Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F
  • 2.
    Gently heat the olive oil in a small pan and add the garlic, stirring, so that it infuses for about a minute. Slice the bread into ¾ inch slices and liberally brush one side with the oil / garlic. Place oil side up on a baking sheet.
  • 3.
    Bake in the center of the oven for about 8 - 10 minutes until lightly golden brown then remove and cool on a wire rack. You can store the cooled slices in an airtight container for a few days.
  • 4.
    When ready to serve, mix the soft goat’s cheese with freshly ground sea salt and black pepper and spread on the sliced bread and serve.
  • 5.
    If the goat’s cheese is a little dry try adding a few drops of olive oil before spreading. You could also serve the bread warm from the oven.
  • Finally....
    Decorate with a scattering of fresh herbs and a few drops of balsamic vinegar
