In This Recipe
Lightly toast 4 slices of bread. Smear butter on each slice (1 Tablespoon shared across the 4 slices). Begin alternating between a smear of goat cheese (about a half teaspoon), a slice of pear, and a sprinkle of thyme from one end of the toast to the other. Repeat for each toast slice. Pour a very light drizzle of maple syrup or honey across each slice.
Place under a broiler for about 1-2 minutes (depending on how close your toast is to the heating element). You want the goat cheese to melt a touch and turn a light golden color, being careful not to burn the bread. Top with remaining thyme and freshly cracked pepper – and serve.
