Grilled goats cheese is one of my favourite starters, if it’s on a restaurant menu, odds are I’m going to order it! This cheese can come in so many varieties, you can get hard and soft versions, and you can get mild cheeses and really “goaty” ones too but I have to admit, I prefer it hot than cold on a cheeseboard.
Now I love a classic cheese on toast, but this one is the ULTIMATE cheese on toast which you can serve up to guests at a dinner party. The recipe uses a log of goats cheese, which you can cut into little rounds (rind on) and grill so the top becomes golden caramelised and the goats cheese is bubbly which oozes all over your toast.
I serve my recipe on toast, spread with a layer of caramelised onion marmalade, a side of rocket and a balsamic glaze.
