  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided

  • fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bottle balsamic glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Place goat cheese into a small, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds (until completely softened). Mix in cream cheese, and season generously with salt, pepper, and 5 sprigs of thyme leaves (removed from stems). Set aside.

  3. Wash and dry grapes. In a bowl, combine grapes with 1 tbsp. olive oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. 

  4. Place grapes on baking tray and roast for 12-15 minutes, or until grapes begin to split open.

  5. Turn oven broiler to high. Drizzle remaining olive oil on bread slices, and place on baking tray. Place in oven in rack below grapes for 1 minute (or until bread is lightly toasted.)

  6. Begin assembly. Swipe bread with goat cheese mixture and layer on about 2-3 tbsp. of grapes per slice. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with additional thyme leaves, if desired.
