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
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.
