This dish is incredibly addicting. I do not say this lightly. I have had guests fall in love over it; wrongfully convicted people celebrate their freedom over it; and I've been the subject of mass mailings to demand the recipe. It is simple, but absolutely delicious. Serve it on toasted baguette rounds and stand back! —tulueats

Made this for company and it was enthusiastically well received. Served with home made sour dough bread toasted on the outdoor grill. My only complaint about the recipe is the vague amount of cheese.

I used a single log from Costco that weighed 10 oz. and mostly followed the recipe. Added about 4 tbl chopped Kalamata olives. Poured off about 3-4 tbl liquid before mixing with the crumbled goat cheese.
