Savory Goat Cheese Apricot Melt


I’m sorry in my opinion goat cheese is nectar from the gods.  It is always available in my kitchen in a variety of formats.  Here’s the latest!  Taking grilled cheese to the next limit with this goat cheese, apricot and thyme spread. Served this delicious melt with some Acorn Squash Soup.  mmmmmmmhmmmmmm


Makes 2 sandwiches

4 slices whole grain bread

3 TBSP butter

6 oz softened goat cheese

1/2 TBSP fresh thyme

2 TBSP chopped dried apricots

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1 1/2 tsp whole milk


In a bowl mix together goat cheese, apricots, thyme, black pepper and milk till a smooth paste forms. Divid paste in half, spread one portion of the mixture on one piece of bread, remaining on the second. Top bread & goat cheese paste with remaining slices of bread.

Heat butter in a skillet over med-med high heat.  Let 2/3 of the butter melt and coat the pan.  Ad in sandwiches.  Soak each of the sandwich sides with melted butter.  Toast sandwiches to preferred grilled preference ( some of you love to almost burn it.. I know you do)

Slice and enjoy melty savory sweetness.
