    Love Garlic Love this recipe. I loved the concept of placing the ingedients out all together but it just did not lend itself for what I needed today SOoooo I followed the recipe ingredients (with 1 variation) but made them a litt le differently. I brushed Olive Oil on one side of the bread slices and broiled the olive oil coated side of the bread I left the other side soft, Roasted the garlic as suggested, squeezed out the garlic and pureed it with the toasted pine nuts. 15 minutes before serving I spread a good 1/8" of the garlic/pine nut puree on the soft side of the bread added the goat cheese on top, However when I tasted the goat cheese with the garlic I decided that not everyone would like it so I did half with goat cheese and half with cheddar- then broiled them and served hot. The cheddar broiled best and looked most attractive. Both goat cheese and the cheddar disappeared . I used a soft, herbed goat cheese. I liked the cheddar best. Thanks for a really good recipe Mirallegirl - I hope you don't mind how I changed the presentation!

    Fantastic combination of flavors! The only suggestions I have are to go ahead and roast an extra head of garlic, and have plenty of the other ingredients on hand--these will go in a hurry. They were such a hit around here, I had to turn around and roast another head of garlic....an hour later we were on round two. :) Then, my son asked for these again the next day, so we actually had them two days in a row. :) I could take or leave the parsley, but it does add to the presentation. Big favorite around here, Derf--thanks for posting the recipe!
