Goat Cheese Bruschetta

This is, hands down, our favorite appetizer.  I find myself looking for reasons to make it.  It's so delicious!  The tangy goat cheese, salty capers, hint of balsamic, good.  Don't wait for a party or special occasion to make this.  Lunch or dinner is reason enough!

Goat Cheese Bruschetta


1lb tomatoes, seeded, cored, and diced
3.5 oz capers, drained
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp Olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 loaf French or Italian bread
1 large clove garlic
3-4 ounces goat cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan 

1. Combine the tomatoes, capers, minced garlic, basil, 1 tbsp olive oil, and balsamic vinegar in a bowl.  Mix well, cover, and set aside.

2.  Heat oven to 375.  Slice the bread into 1/2 inch slices on a diagonal and place on a baking sheet.  Drizzle each slice with olive oil and bake until just beginning to toast and brown - 10-15 minutes.  Remove bread from the oven and cut 1/4 inch off the top of a large garlic clove.  Rub the cut end of the garlic on each piece of bread.  Then, spread a layer of goat cheese over each slice, top with tomato mixture, and sprinkle with parmesan.

3.  Return the bread to the oven and bake until parmesan melts, about 5 minutes.  Remove, serve, and enjoy!

Bon Appetit!
