I love goat cheese. Like really love it.
It’s the perfect bright flavor to couple with sweet or spicy. This recipe is an interesting combination of the bright goat cheese, nutty parmesan, sweet apricot and spicy dijon. Plus, its served bubbly hot on crunchy crustini. Perfection.
This is the goat cheese and parmesan mixture.
Here is the apricot topping.
Hot and bubbly from the oven.
I couldn’t resist. Yum.

Mix the cheeses and crushed pepper and spread evenly on the bottom of the gratin dish. Mix the remaining ingredients together and spread evenly over the goat cheese mixture. Bake for 5 minutes until warm, then broil on high for 2 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve warm with crustini or crackers.
