What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Remove goat cheese from refrigerator and allow the goat cheese to warm to room temperature.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. A toaster oven is good for this. Place the garlic cloves, unpeeled on a pan and drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the top. Place in oven hot oven and roast until garlic is soft – approximately 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  3. Add the paprika to the goat cheese and mix. Squeeze the roasted garlic into the cheese. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil and mix. The cheese will turn a pinkish-orange color.
  1. Cut baguette into slices about a 1/3-inch thick. Spread cheese mixture on each slice. Place sun-dried tomatoes and a caper or two onto each slice of bread.
