This right here, my friends, is a quick, easy, and seriously delicious breakfast, lunch, or snack that is perfect for the fall season.
These toasts start with whipped cinnamon goat cheese, which sounds fancy but is super easy to – ahem – whip up. Whipping the goat cheese results in a fluffy, silky texture that spreads easily. The cinnamon adds a lovely spiciness and a touch of sweetness.
I couldn’t decide between topping the whipped cinnamon goat cheese with fig jam or pumpkin butter (my two favorite autumnal spreads), so I chose both!
Pears are divine right now, thus making them the perfect finishing touch to these toasts.
Both versions are delectable on their own, but to really put these toasts over the top, I suggest you sandwich both of them together. Pear & Cinnamon Whipped Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Pumpkin Butter & Fig Jam? YES.
Pear & Whipped Cinnamon Goat Cheese Toast (two ways)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Ingredients (1-2 servings)
- 4 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
- milk to thin, if necessary
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 slices of your favorite bread, (preferably whole wheat) toasted to desired preference
- 1 Tbsp fig jam
- 1 Tbsp pumpkin butter
- 1 ripe (but firm) pear, (I used Anjou), preferably organic, very thinly sliced
Place the goat cheese in a mini food processor and process until creamy (about 3-5 minutes). You may add a bit of milk – 1 tsp at a time – to thin it out if necessary (I used 2 tsp milk in total). If you don’t have a mini food processor, you can mash the goat cheese in a bowl with a fork until creamy. Add in the cinnamon and process (or mash) until fully combined. Set aside.
Spread about 2-3 Tbsp of the whipped cinnamon goat cheese on each slice of toast. Top one slice with fig jam, and the other with pumpkin butter. Evenly divide the sliced pear between the two slices of toast.
