Being a mom of three little boys can make it tough to keep it original in the kitchen. While it may be tempting to just repeat the same dishes, I like to have a variety of meals to choose from.

My favorite cuisine to cook is Mexican, but I love trying out other types of food as well. One delicious type of food that I have recently been experimenting with is the famous bruschetta.

The basic recipe for bruschetta consists of grilled bread, rubbed with garlic and olive oil and then topped with different toppings. It can include fruit, beans, cheese, and more.

The recipe that I want to share today takes the standard bruschetta and takes it up a notch by adding Montchevre Goat cheese, strawberries, basil, and a honey-balsamic glaze.

I chose Montchevre goat cheese as the spread for this recipe because it is not only delicious, but it has a high concentration of protein, calcium and vitamin D. It really is the perfect vehicle for anything else that you want to add to the bruschetta.

Montchevre goat cheese comes in many different flavors and varieties, so you can adapt it for so many different types of recipes. Below are a few of the flavors that I recently purchased.

How to make a bruschetta

The toppings of a bruschetta are important, but getting the bread right is crucial as well. To make this bruschetta, I started with a delicious loaf of French bread, and sliced it into 1/2 inch thick slices.

The next step was to add olive oil and then lightly grill each slice on a hot frying pan or skillet.

Next, I added the Montchevre goat cheese. For this recipe, I used the Natural flavor, but I bet it would have gone well with the Lemon flavor as well!

After the spreading the goat cheese on the grilled bread, I went to work creating the strawberry-basil mixture and the balsamic-honey glaze. I mixed all of that together and added it on top of the goat cheese.

This sounds so delicious! I must confess, I've never tried goat cheese of any kind...! My question is, is goat cheese similar to cream cheese? I always imagined the consistency to be similar. Also, is it more, or less, salty than cream cheese? I suppose I'm curious if I might be able to swap the two for this, or any recipe. Thanks so much for your help. I just adore your recipes! ❤❤❤ ~amber

Thanks so much Amber! Yes, the consistency of goat cheese is similar to cream cheese, maybe not quite as smooth, but pretty close. It isn't as salty but the taste is a little bit different. I think that you could substitute the two if you wanted and it would still be delicious - although the goat cheese really does go well! Thanks again for the comment!
