Apple & Goat Cheese Bruschetta





Cheese, oh how I love thee...let me count the ways.

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Sugar is Sweet
But dude, cheese is da'bomb


So kill me if I didn't rhyme.



INGREDIENTS

1 log of goat cheese
1 apple - peeled, cored, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
French Bread slices, use as much as you need depending on how much topping you like.



DIRECTIONS



Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack 3 to 4 inches from the heat source.


Toss together the goat cheese, apple, thyme, oregano, and pepper in a bowl; set aside. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet; toast the bread under the broiler until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.







Sprinkle the goat cheese mixture evenly over the bread slices. Return bread to oven to broil until cheese is softened, about 1-2 minutes more.







And now you can enjoy

I truly love your poem..are you published ;)
I've come to admit I don't care for goat cheese (it was a very liberating experience), but I'll bet this would be great with some other soft cheese.

Well, perhaps no prize for the poem, but the goat cheese on bruschetta....yes! Love the fresh herbs you used too.

Nothing better than bread, cheese and all sorts of other tasty goodies spread on that bread! YUM!

I have never met a cheese I didn't like. And goat cheese is one of my favs. So I know I would be dangerous around a batch of these.
