Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices multi-grain bread toasted
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/4 c. balsamic reduction

Instructions

  • Slice your 4oz. log of goat cheese into four even thin pieces. Place them on a piece of cling wrap and seal. Freeze them for at least 2 hours or until solid.
  • In a shallow bowl combine the flour, salt and pepper. In a second bowl whisk the egg and in a third seperate bowl add your panko bread crumbs.
  • Remove the goat cheese pieces from the freezer and one at a time dip them in the flour, then egg and lastly panko bread crumbs, being sure to coat all sides evenly.
  • In a small skillet over high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and swirl around to coat the pan. Add two of the breaded goat cheese pieces to the hot oil. Turn the pieces after 40-60 seconds on each side, or golden brown. Be sure and fry each side, including the edges, well so the goat cheese doesn't run out. Place the fried goat cheese on a paper towel.
  • Repeat the process by adding the remaining olive oil and goat cheese pieces to the pan.
  • Meanwhile, top each toasted piece of bread with slices of avocado, tomato, fried goat cheese and a tablespoon of balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.
