This sandwich was warm, gooey and delicious. So easy to make after a long day at work, and satisfying too.-29 Sep 2008
We liked these sandwiches pretty well but it is VERY salty and in general has a very overwhelming flavor. I would like to try it again sometime with my own pesto, which tends to be less salty. And also not layer the ingredients on quite so thickly.-07 Jul 2008

If you like goat cheese, and I can’t understand how one couldn’t, then one of your favorite restaurant appetizers is probably a warm goat cheese salad, where the outside of the cheese is crusted in crumbs and crisp, and the inside is warm and running with oozing, velvety goat cheese.
You don’t have to go out for Warm Goat Cheese Salad. It is one of the easiest French feasts to make at home. I serve mine in a fresh crepe bowl with a cassis vinaigrette. For the rest of that recipe, and more fresh French recettes…
Very delicious! The peppers and mushrooms had so much flavor. I also served this with toasted or warmed pieces of bread for open or closed-face sandwiches. Very filling, too. Will for sure make again!
This was good and kept kitchen cool since I made it on outdoor grill. I used English muffins instead of Kaiser rolls. Very tasty for our Meatless Monday dinner. It will definitely be on the Meatless Monday rotation!
So delicious with a unique but easy preparation! Make sure to cook mushrooms on both sides.
I prefer Cooking Light's Grilled Portobello-Goat Cheese Pitas recipe. I made these using crusty multi-grain french bread slices as they work well on our panini grill than kaiser rolls. The flavor of the grilled mushrooms and peppers was good, but the bottom slice of bread got slightly mushy. I used provolone cheese slices for my daughter's sandwich as she doesn't like goat cheese and her's looked better than ours. Probably wouldn't make again but I'm glad I tried it.
This was a yummy dish I did substitute the cheese to blue cheese just because its our favorite.
yummy and tasty. an easy go to vegetarian recipe. I used french baguette and toasted it first. Delicious.
I thought this recipe was excellent. I used a grill pan as opposed to a grill and slightly more vinegar than the recipe called for. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I do think either toasting the bread or heating the goat cheese prior to assembling the sandwiches is key. Otherwise it makes the sandwich taste cold. Fantastic combination of favors. Will definitely make again!
really liked it - we broiled instead of grilled the veggies as it was winter. we put it in a panini press so maybe some crustier bread would've been good too as our rolls sort of got a little soggy underneath. but great flavor and my husband even liked it (he doesn't usually eat very healthy!)
This was so tasty!! I let the mushrooms and bell peppers marinade for about 3-4 hours and I prepared the vegetables on the grill pan. I put the sandwiches together and then pressed them on our quesidilla maker. I also toasted the buns under the broiler. I will definitely make this for company another time because it had so much flavor.
Would make this for sure again. Served a tomato salad with it. Perfect
Yummy and easy for a weeknight!
Excellent, followed the recipes exactly, but on a grill pan. Next time I would cut the peppers in eigths so that they get more grill marks. I would also do the peppers first so that they can cool and I can slice them thin while the mushrooms grill (the thicker mushrooms took longer to cook). Couldn't really taste the basil so I would make that an optional ingredient and not hesitate to make the sandwiches without it, if necessary.
amazing recipe. for two people I used the same amount of peppers (had a few leftover) and just 2 portobellos and fresh buns from the deli. We'll definitely be making this again!
Don't interpret three stars as an indication the recipe isn't good. It's very, very good. In fact, I added it to my recipe book and added it to my favorites in my Living Cookbook software. But the rating system says three stars means a good, solid recipe. Four stars means it's good for a special occasion. This isn't an elegant dish, but it is a good, solid recipe. It comes together very quickly using ingredients most kitchens would normally have on hand. The flavors blend very well together. And the best thing, it's low calorie! We ate these without the bun, so we estimate it's only 217 calories for one mushroom with the fixings! But both my wife and I felt full after eating only one. We had some fruit along with it (watermelon, grapes, blueberries). Very good flavor, healthy, very low fat and very low calorie!
All you need are these easy ingredients, with warm crunchy crostini!
I’m married to an Irish man, so kissing happens much more than on a daily basis, or even on St. Paddy’s Day! HA! In fact, 30 years ago this month, Paul asked me to marry him! THIRTY YEARS! Wow!

So you really love cheese? Can’t stop, won’t stop eating cheese? You’re not alone. There’s a lot to love about it — and it takes center stage in these seven cheesy recipes.
Sure, nothing brings people together like a good cheese board. But if you really want to bring all the boys to the yard, try making a cheesy crab dip or pepperoni pizza mac ‘n cheese. These cheesy recipes are ooey, gooey delicious.
Tools needed: Baking Dish
Dip your choice of chip into this super cheesy crab dip — or spoon it straight into your mouth. It’s your call. This dip is great for summer parties, movie nights, game nights or whenever you’re hosting a group of hungry people.
You have to try these. These creamy balls of goat cheese come drenched in Buffalo hot sauce. If you like mozzarella sticks, these are kind of the same — but even creamier. Make them as an appetizer on game day or for movie night.
Tools needed: Nonstick Skillet
These gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches are stuffed with Gruyere cheese, Muenster cheese, white cheddar, herbs and the secret ingredient: caramelized onions. Yes, this is the best grilled cheese sandwich recipe. The recipe calls for four sandwiches — and you may want to allot yourself at least two to start.
Tools needed: Cast Iron Skillet
Warm up with melt-in-your-mouth restaurant-style queso dip. It’s made with two types of cheese, jalapeños, tomatoes and a handful of spices. Serve it with your choice of tortilla chips and a refreshing margarita.
These enchiladas are a great option for a quick and no-fuss dinner. They’re stuffed with cheese, chicken and plenty of enchilada sauce — and take about 40 minutes to make. Traditional Mexican enchiladas use corn tortillas, crumbled cheese and are usually stuffed with some type of pepper. Many makers of traditional enchiladas also take pride in making their own enchilada sauce, filled with dried peppers, onion, garlic and tomato. These enchiladas are a more Americanized version, but similar idea
Tools needed: Cast Iron Skillet
Pepperoni pizza and mac ‘n cheese are two comfort foods that are great on their own — but combined, they’re even better. You don’t have to take our word for it. Try out this recipe.
Tools needed: Sheet Pan
This recipe takes classic pigs-in-a-blanket to an entirely different (and spicy) level. This pastry dough comes stuffed with jalapeños, cream cheese, cocktail sausages and more cheese.
We made it tonight and it was so delicious! One thing I will do next time is to slice the tomatoes rather than chop them. Chopped tomatoes on crusty bread made for a sloppy sandwich. Sloppy, but tasty!
This is a nice recipe. I used mini baguettes and cut them lengthwise. I also added garlic salt to the olive oil I brushed on the bread and a hint to the eggplant. My husband who doesn't care for goat cheese or eggplant thought these were yummy!
This recipe was super easy. I made it as directed and thought it turned out great. I will definitely make it again.
great base recipe but i did modify it a good bit to my own taste and mood: seasoned the eggplant way more than specified, put garlic on the bread before i grilled it (there are very few savory recipes that i don't add garlic to), added thick-cut ham and caramelized onions, and pressed the whole assembled sandwich in my electric grill. it was also really pretty lots of great colors! served it with fresh mango. definitely saving this recipe to make again and again!
Mouthwatering and super easy! Don't worry about what looks like a small amount of red wine vinegar. The proportions are perfect. Works under a broiler at the times indicated. Used LaBrea garlic bread for an even more flavorful effect.
Have made this twice now and really look forward to having it again. I used Chinese eggplants cut into rounds and served on both toasted ciabatta bread and in a whole wheat pita - both delicious, but grilled bread might be even better! I just drizzled a bit of olive oil on the eggplant - you really don't need any in my opinion. You can alos grill more than you need for future leftovers that you just warm in the microwave before assembling.
absolutely wonderful, light, summery, healthy, delicious, easy. I've already made this three times -- it's becoming a staple.
This was one great sandwich! I was making a few sandwiches and broiling the eggplant so next time I would cut rounds instead of lengthwise slices just to save some room on the broiler pan. The goat cheese just melted into the bread (which I broiled last instead of first as the recipe suggested) so that the bread would be hot. My husband just loved the flavors and he is not a huge fan of fresh basil. till now.
Marinated the eggplant slices in olive oil and garlic. Seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled. Also served on Ciabatta and it was divine. My mother in law requested the recipe.
So good! And as I sit here and eat the leftovers(in a flour tortilla) 2 days later, I think it tastes as good at room temperature! Used fresh mozzarella instead of goat cheese. I also added carmelized onions and sauteed red bell peppers to the sandwiches. I enhanced the tomato topping with chopped garlic and a touch of balsamic.
Its a great feeling when you taste something you made yourself that tastes as good as you would get in a restaurant. I also baked some garlic and when they were soft and sweet, spread them on the bread. I also added roasted red peppers. Wow, this sandwich is just so good. Also, tried it with brie and it was good with that too.
Wonderful recipe. Delicious and great for vegetarians. Added grilled red onions.
We absolutely loved this! I made it as the recipe specified with the exclusion of salt( as I usually don't cook with salt)but I think this recipe needs some.I used cherry tomatoes and I cut the eggplant in rounds instead of lengthwise and put in on a french loaf baguette. I also prepared the tomato mixture in a few hours in advance so the flavors could mingle. Itlooks beautiful on the plate and the taste was incredible.We had a lovely red Portugese wine with it and enjoyed it as a light supper. I will definitely make this again and again.
I don't measure, so I can't say Iɽ add more of this or less of that, but how I threw together their ingredients ended up great! I substituted dried basil for fresh. Used roma tomatoes. I added sauteed crimini mushrooms. The bread I used was veggie bread w/herbs de provence I had made two days before. Next time I may carmalize onion and add that. Try this recipe it is quick, easy & colorful and if I had a restaurant, Iɽ add it to my menu. The drawback: it made a very high sandwich. Consider serving it open faced as an appetizer..

Buzz Lightyear as Mrs. Nesbitt. A tea party classic. Goat cheese and fig jam sandwiches. Also a tea party classic.
Did you have a “Mrs. Nesbitt” when you were a kid? My girls had a TON: Barbies, baby dolls, stuffed animals, beanie babies all took turns being tea party guests. But I think their favorite “Mrs. Nesbitt” was their little brother, Thomas.
Thomas would do anything to get to play with his big sisters, and that usually meant dress-ups. His most common role was Buddy the Dog, but he also spent a fair amount of time dressed in high heels, tutus, cheerleading costumes, princess dresses and, occasionally, when he was really lucky, cowboy boots. (Thomas was a very good sport.)
And when the dress-ups came out, that usually meant tea parties, aka grapes on colored toothpicks, cheese cubes and tiny crackers, lemonade and brownies cut in fourths. The best times.
Grown-up tea parties are even better, I think. Tea party food, but fancier, prettier, tastier. And that means fun little sandwiches. Like goat cheese and fig jam sandwiches!
Goat and fig were meant to be together. Like Woody and Buzz. Those flavors just work. Add a little nutty crunch and fresh herbs, and you’ve got yourself a tea party fave. Or lunch box fave. Breakfast? Simple dinner? Picnic? Even the “Mr. Nesbitts” will love these.
I know this because the guys in our house go wild over these little beauties. High fives all around. Or high fours…you better stick that pinky out. This is a tea party, after all.
