Goat Cheese with Grilled Eggplant and Roasted Pepper Sandwich on Olive Bread
- 2 ozs Fresh goat cheese
- 2 Slices olive bread
- 3 1/4 inch grilled eggplant slices
- 1/2 A large roasted red pepper
- 1 tsp Lightly salted butter
Pairing Notes: We look the taste of grilled eggplant and red peppers together and think this accompanies the earthiness of Pinot beautifully.
Chef's Tip: Fresh mozzarella works well in place of goat cheese if you are not a fan of goat cheese. And for the sake of ease, you can purchase roasted red peppers instead of roasting your own.
