TOAST TUESDAY! Goat Cheese Grapes + Thyme


There is nothing I love more than the combination of sweet and savory all wrapped up together in a dish that is texturally soft and crunchy all at the same time. This toast just does it for me! I have combined fried bread, that has a crunch like no other, soft goat cheese, decadent sweet Chai Red Grape jam, herbaceous thyme and topped if with some fresh grapes for contrast! It truly was such a delicious breakfast treat! Get the full recipe below!


To create 1 piece of toast you'll need:

  • 1 slice of multi-grain wheat bread
  • 2 Tb olive oil (unless you just want to toast your bread in an oven)
  • 1 Tb goat cheese
  • 1 Tb Chai Red Grape Jam
  • 1 Ts fried pancetta
  • Fresh Thyme
  • A handful of fresh grapes

A cast iron skillet or a toaster


  1. Preheat your cast iron skillet on medium.
  2. After the skillet is heated up add olive oil, then fry the bread on both sides. This takes about 3-5 minutes per side. You could also just toast it in the oven or toaster!
  3. Put toast aside and then fry up pancetta in the skillet. I fry a whole pack of it and then use it through out the week.
  4. On your toast layer goat cheese, Chai Red Grape Jam, pancetta, thyme and fresh grapes cut in half length wise.
  5. Enjoy!
