Goat’s Cheese Sandwich Recipe with Beetroot, Pear & Rocket
5th May 2016
If you love goat’s cheese, you will love this goat’s cheese sandwich recipe. It teams this luscious cheese with beetroot, pear and rocket in a crispy baguette or ciabatta. It might sound a bit unusual, but I promise you it is heavenly.
Goat’s cheese sandwich recipe
To make two sandwiches you will need:
- A baguette or ciabatta, cut in half for two sandwiches
- A pack of soft goat’s cheese, ideally 100-150g
- Two pears
- A pack of beetroot
- A bag of rocket
Optional extra – I dressed the rocket in raspberry wine vinegar to give the sandwich some extra zing, but it’s not essential to the flavour.
What to do:
- Split the goat’s cheese in half and spread it onto each piece of bread. It’s not always the easiest to spread, so it may be more a case of pressing it onto the bread.
- Slice the beetroot, and add several slices on top of the cheese. Make sure there is enough to run the length of the bread.
- Starting at the thick end of the pear, slice three or four thin pieces. Remove the stalky middle, and layer onto the sandwich.
- Add a handful of rocket (dressed or undressed, whichever you prefer) and close the lid of your sandwich.
- Pop it into a Panini or sandwich press (I have a Breville café style sandwich press, and it is fab) or under the grill. Heat the sandwich just for a few minutes to take the chill off the filling.
- Serve and enjoy.
