Goats cheese and trout toasties

Impress your guests (or just yourself) with these easy and ever so yummy toasties!

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  2. Using a pastry cutter that is slightly larger than the goats’ cheese rounds, cut a circle from each slice of bread.
  3. Brush the bread rounds with a little olive oil, scatter with a few thyme leaves and season well.
  4. Place the bread rounds on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until crisp and a light golden colour.
  5. Remove the bread from the oven and spread 1 tsp pesto over half the rounds.
  6. Divide the smoked trout among the pesto-topped bread, top with the cheese rounds and season well with black pepper.
  7. Top the cheese with the rest of the bread circles. Bake the toasties in the oven for another 5 minutes, until the cheese has just started to soften slightly.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with the cherry tomatoes and basil leaves for a delicious snack.
