Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Chef John 21745

"The way the tangy, slightly salty goat cheese works with the syrupy, balsamic-coated strawberries and crispy, charred bread is a thing of beauty."

  1. Heat vinegar in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Simmer until reduced by about half, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare a grill for high heat. Place bread slices on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Combine strawberries and thyme in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Grill bread on the preheated grill until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Spread goat cheese on toasted bread. Add black pepper, salt, and reduced vinegar to the strawberry mixture. Spoon over the goat cheese topped bruschetta. Garnish with additional thyme.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can toast the bread under the broiler instead of on a grill if needed.

I changed this a little, although I'm sure it would still deserve 5 stars, as written. This made an extremely good dessert, for my Sunday dinner. I used a frozen pound cake (thawed) instead of...

I have made this using basil instead of the thyme and its amazing!!! People always ask me for the recipe.

Good. I had some trouble reducing the vinegar, it turned hard fast. But the flavors came together well in the end.

Let me make this perfectly clear....I Don't like goat cheese, too earthy. I don't like strawberries, too many little seeds to get caught in my teeth. I don't like Balsamic vinegar, too strong,...

Tastes fan-freakin'-tastic. The saucy cut-up fruit does not travel well. Wait til it's the last possible moment to mix it up.

I enjoyed this but thought the thyme was a little overpowering for my taste. I am going to make again using basil. The flavor is really great with the tanginess and the sweet from the vinegar,...

These are amazing!! We took the advice of another and used basil instead of thyme. My kids 12 & 7 ask for these daily and even the picky hubs likes them too. Thanks for the great recipe!

This is outstanding!!! I am afraid of our grill, so I toasted the bread in the oven, but otherwise followed the directions exactly. It got rave reviews, even by the kids. Definitely one of my...

so easy and super delish!
