I've been on a goat cheese kick for about a month now. My recipe is similar. I use a broiler and sprinkle basil instead of thyme, but I will try thyme next time. I'm usually only making it for 1-2, so I use a very small amount and put it in a small pan. Mini garlic toasts are the best for this. Nomnomnom

amazing, simple but looks fancy, and who doesn't love goat cheese? I would probably pair this with some sort of olive tapenade to go with the crostini/crackers
