Goat Cheese, Roasted Pepper and Basil Appetizers

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This tasty and unusual appetizer can double as a sandwich if you'd like---I used mine as bruschetta. Found at about.com. (I also think you could broil this for a few minutes for a hot sandwich).

What a great lunch I had! I took meow's suggestion and used toasted french bread topped with all the goodies and broiled until warm. This is a keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 jar marinated goat cheese (I used plain old goat cheese from a local ethnic supermarket)
  • 1 red bell pepper, roasted
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, roasted
  • 3 -4 tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade (not dried)
  • 1 large baguette


  1. Slice baguette into 1 inch slices.
  2. Spread a layer of goat cheese onto each slice.
  3. Top with a strip or two of roasted pepper and a few strips of fresh basil.
  4. If you prefer to serve this as an entree sandwich, just slice your baguette lengthwise, spread with goat cheese and top with roasted peppers and fresh basil.
