  • 1 loaf of your favorite bread, gluten free or regular
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 16 ounce bag of mini sweet peppers
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Herbed Goat Cheese:

  • 5 ounces goat cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon basil, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a small bowl, add all of the herbed goat cheese ingredients and mix together. Set aside.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut the bread into slices and drizzle with olive oil. Place the slices onto a large baking sheet and place in the oven for about 10 – 15 minutes, flipping once. After bread is toasted, rub one side with the raw clove of garlic.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Wash the peppers and cut them into thin slices. On a large baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, add the pepper slices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and place into the oven. Roast for about 30 minutes, or until peppers are soft and caramelized.
  4. Spread about 1 tablespoon of herbed goat cheese spread onto each slice of bread and top with balsamic roasted peppers.
