Warm Goat Cheese Toasts with Olive Tapenade

Warm Goat Cheese Toasts With Olive Tapenade Recipe, Yum Yum Octopus

I first had these warm goat cheese toasts at a friend’s place, and I was immediately hooked. It’s such a great snack, and you only need 4 ingredients and 10 minutes to make it. A perfect nibble along with pre-dinner drinks, at the tapas table, or served together with a creamy tomato soup.

I prefer to make the toasts with sour dough baguette, but any regular baguette would do too. The Spread-mmms tapenade has a nice kick that goes well with the sharp goat cheese flavor, but you can use any olive tapenade of your liking.

  • 1 baguette

  • 2 tablespoons olive tapenade

  • 1 small log of goat cheese with rind (You need enough to cut 12 discs, 0.5 inch thick)

  • Olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Cut the baguette into 12 slices about ½ inch thick.
  • Pour a bit of olive oil on a plate and dip each side of the sliced bread in the oil.
  • Place the olive-soaked bread slices on a baking sheet.
  • Cut the goat cheese log into 12 discs about ½ inch thick.
  • Place the cheese on top of the bread slices
  • Bake for 4-5 minutes and keep an eye on the toasts all the time, as they are easy to burn. When the bread is slightly golden, and the cheese turns soft and start melting the toasts are ready.
  • Top with olive tapenade and serve hot. You can also add the tapenade before baking. I’ve tried both options, and I like the flavor better, when added afterwards.
